Re: Making the best of SEL 16-50 Wide Angle Distortion

I am sorry, I did not realize such barreling lenses exist and could be sold; I am just behind the times here.

Wow, that is built in distortion of a major level.

What next NEX? What is the usable focal length at 16mm as the correction slices off lots of image estate?

Sorry about this lens ….. My lenses' image correction most often results in a little snipped off the edges, almost no noticeable straightening of lines  and a bit more light coming through. So in about half of the images I prefer to use no correction.

But this 16-50 PZ? Phew.
