This Lens Does Exactly What is Expected

Sony 16mm f/2.8 Alpha E-Mount Lens The Sony Alpha E-Mount SEL16mm Wide-Angle f/2.8 Lens gives the opportunity to delve into your creativity. It's light in weight and compact and styled to match your NEX camera while being exceptionally transportable (it even fits in your pocket). This 16mm lens contains an internal stepper motor for effortless, precise, and very quiet AF for both pictures and movies.

The lens helps in providing clear photographs in poor lighting environments with to its quick f/2.8 aperture. This 16mm acts like a 24mm mounted on an SLR 35mm film camera) wide-angle lens produces an 83 viewing angle and a short focusing space of just 9.4 inches). This adaptable lens provides exposure for a wide range of photography subjects which includes, but by no way limited to, portraits, landscapes, nature and close-ups.

Ideal for everyday photography, the low-profile 16mm f/2.8 lens keeps the bulk down, allowing you to easily carry the camera in a purse, pants pocket, or coat. The creative possibilities of this lens can be further expanded by using the VCL-ECU1 Ultra Wide Lens Converter which gives you a 12mm viewing angle or the VCL-ECF1 Fisheye Lens Converter that provides impressive distortion.

Although if you want to hold the camera bulk down, keep in mind that there's no zoom and the picture quality is not as good as the other lenses.  Announced May 11, 2010 ✓
