Sony NEX 16mm f/2.8 Lens

Bought at good price. But there is no big difference to the 16-50 kit len. Was returned finally.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Super lense, but better with adapter

For the amateur photographer, this is a great lens, although it doesn't offer much of a step up from the 16 - 50 mm lens that came with my NEX 3n. It's also pretty useless for portrait shots and group shots. But with the super side convertor lens I picked up on a trip to the US this year, it takes the wide angle to another level. This makes it an amazing lens for landscape shots, and worth it in my opinion.

Great little lens

This is a great landscape lens and on the NEX cameras it doesn't add weight or size to the camera.
