Re: Cheap legacy wide angle/fisheye lenses?

No. Never gonna be a wealth of cheap legacy wide-angles or fisheyes for Nex due to the crop factor.

A legacy 16mm FF focal length - although commonly available - is still a pretty extreme lens on 35mm .... but a 'ho-hum' 24mm FOV on APS sensor. And anything much wider than a 16mm (FF) is:

a) rare

b) expensive

c) HUGELY expensive.

Only the Rokinon/Samyang/X Brand fisheyes fall into the 'cheaper' legacy category ... but can be bought for only a little more in Nex mount anyway. Or buy native e-mount lenses - like the 10-18 - probably better value in the long run.
