Exclusive! Our samples gallery from a production version of Sony's E-mount 16mm F2.8 lens. Sony has made changes to the manufacturing process which it says will improve the quality and consistency of the lens. The company has allowed us to shoot with one of the first examples so we've gone out and shot a range of subjects at a range of apertures (including F2.8). As a prelude to our forthcoming review of the Sony NEX cameras and lenses, here is our review sample gallery for the 16mm F2.8 pancake lens.
