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
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.
Excerpt: It's so light that you just must have it. I love taking photos wherever I go and hate carrying heavy things with me. I have a NEX3F which is really light already, but with this lenses, it's even lighter. Amazing!
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Lightweight
If you can ignore distortion and vignetting around edges, you will love it

Summary: The bokeh is excellent on macro. Less so when taking portraits or from further back, but still good. Excellent for landscapes, nature, city scene, and outdoor pictures. Indoor pictures are mediocre compared to the SEL1855. You may need to crop the pics due to lack of zoom and the wide angle.
