Summary: The lens are small but with my Sony NEX F3, they still don't fits in all my jeans without a bit discomfort. The quality of pics are excellent for landscape, in the dark or with a lot of light.
Cool little lens, powerful with ultra-wide and Fisheye !

Summary: I bought this one used from an Amazon seller and it's a very nice lens so far. I bought this one over the newer model available mainly due to price. If i could've found the newer 20mm f/2.8 second-hand for a great price i would have picked it up. I am not a professional photographer and none of my pics are going into National Geographic.
Better than many people say, and outstanding with ACR corrections...

Summary: The Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 Wide-Angle Lens is an outstanding lens for Sony E Mount cameras like the NEX. I have achieved results with this lens that, quite frankly, I would have thought impossible for such a modestly priced lens. I say "outstanding" with one very serious qualifier. That is that you accept that the lens is, in many ways, very mediocre in straight optical terms, but a very good performer if digitally corrected in post production. Skeptical? I was also.
Summary: I throw this lens on my NEX 7 on days when I don't want to think, but just want to shoot. Works great for interiors or exteriors, from infinity to near macro-ish. (yes, i know its not a macro lens) What i'm trying to say is that you can shoot tight, like really tight to a subject and have everything be wonderfully in focus. This lens is a blast to mess about with.
Summary: I bought this lens to use with my NEX 5R and it works very well. This wide angle lens is very small, thin, and light weight, nut it also gives you good quality photo. Only thing I don't like about this lens is it can't zoom, but yes, it's wide angle lens, and with this price I am satisfy with my purchased.
Summary: We bought the fish eye lens and needed this wide-angle lens to attach the fish eye. Every shot is beautiful. We didn't even intend to use this lens by itself, but found ourselves doing so a few times. If you're short on budget, instead try using the panoramic feature on your camera for similar results. Otherwise, I would recommend it to others.
