Excerpt: I purchased the Sony 16mm because I wanted to try boththe Sony fisheye attachment and extra wide angle adapter on my A6000. Decent stuff, not Leica, but o.k. for around the house. The small size, sharpness of the lens is definitely worth the price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Focus, Lightweight, Pros Use This Lens
Excerpt: I bought this for my A7 to use as a walk around/travel lens. It's a compact and has a nice quality to it. Only thing that would make this lens better is if it were black and matched the finish of the A7.
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Quality Construction
Summary: Some people complain about this lens because it is not a pro lens. It does a good job for the price, just don't expect it to be the same as a $1,000 lens. I paired it with a wide angle converter lens to give me two options. On its own, it is relatively short.
Excerpt: This is great if you're looking for the lightest weight option. Photos are just like others have said, best if you stop the lens down to f8 or so. Although using it wide open for most people is fine. I use this lens mainly with the wide converter, which adds size and weight.
Summary: This lens by itself doesn't really produce shots that are any wider than when using the kit lens (16-50mm). But it does really decrease the size of the camera when it's on, and when combined with the VCL-ECU1 ultra-wide converter, the results are great.
