Excellent Fisheye for Sony NEX Series

Photodog, B&H Photo
6 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased this for my Sony NEX 5N and NEX-7 cameras. I was using the conversion lenses for wide angle and fisheye mounted to the original 16mm pancake lens. This lens is a true fisheye but doesn't allow for autofocus or auto exposure. This isn't a handicap however.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
