The SEL 16 is one of the worst lenses I have ever owned. I got it with my original NEX 5 and it was so prone to flare it was awful.

hi David,

how the SEL16f2.8 without the baffle + the wide and fisheye adapters work? -i know you have the fisheye adapter, not sure about the wide adapter)

Anyway, any sample with the SEL16f28?

My A7R won't arrive until after Christmas...

There are some sampling issues with the SEL16f2.8 -but not all the lenses are bad. The problem with some users is that they don't really know how to work properly with wide angle lenses, and they blame the lens, not their technique (I not saying that this is your case, Lisa...)

My lens works fine, and I know David love his very much.

The SEL 16 does get a bad rap. You need to work at composure and don't get people, etc. on the edges for it to work like any other wide angle. It does quite well stopped down to F8-11 either alone or with the UWA. I bought mine used but got the UWA off Amazon new and didn't have to go through any exchanges.
