Re: Is the Sony 16mm/F2.8 really that bad?


I think the review only count for the NEX 9.

I use it om my NEX5 N. It is an easy lens to bring and I use it especially underwater since it is wide. How ever it is a bit soft in the corner, but very sharp in the center. I hide it with a vigette.

Don't expect to get a 1200 dollar Zeiss lens for 248.

I think I remember that they liked the lens, just not as a kit lens.

It is a vey good lens for the price, and a stunning deal if you need a fish eye lens.
