Product description
Announced May 11, 2010

The Sony E 16mm F2.8 Pancake is an inexpensive fixed wide-angle prime lens for Sony's APS-C format NEX interchangeable lens cameras. With an equivalent focal length of 24mm, it offers an attractive combination of decent optical quality and very small size and weight, and usefully complements the 18-55mm kit zoom. Optical quality is fine for the most part when stopped down, but distinctly iffy towards the corners at larger apertures.
