A wonderful auxiliary lens for the Sony NEX system, for a full frame Fish Eye perspective. In the past, I purchased a Nikon 16mm, a Canon FD 15mm, Olympus OM 16mm full frame fish eye lenses (of course being a lens hoarder, still own them and like them on full frame sensor cameras) but the Sony NEX system is a 1.5x crop and the 35mm equivalent of a 1.5 x 16mm = the perspective of a 24mm full frame fisheye which is nowhere near as exciting as the original 16mm perspective. With this auxiliary lens, I can get that exciting perspective for creative shots.
I bought this just for fun and experimental video. The image looks distorted but for close shoot in cramped places where you want to capture more of the environment this could be useful.
This lens is both compact and lightweight and doesn't take a lot of room in your bag. It snaps in place very easily and is a well-worth-purchasing addition to your arsenal especially if you like to give a bit of distortion to your image for a more creative effect.
