Using the fisheye or wide angle adapters on the 16mm lens actually improves the quality of the lens, though mine is a good copy, nice and sharp. Automatic distortion correction won't work with the adapters though, because the camera can't detect them, and defeats the object of the fisheye lens. FWIW I bought the fisheye adapter for £99.

That's been mentioned before. Distortion correction of the basic 16 works on my 5R but not my 3. (why doesn't Sony do more with firmware updates?) So I suspect the EWA is designed to compensate for the 16's distortion errors. If true that would work on the  NEX 5 or 3 but be unessary on the newer models. Or NOT?
