The 16mm f/2.8 Alpha A-Mount Fisheye Lens from Sony is a full-frame fisheye that provides your camera with a wide 180° angle of view. With such an exaggerated perspective and intriguing visual distortion, this fisheye lens brings images closer to the focal plane for a view beyond the ability of the human eye.

In addition to eye-catching interpretations of reality, it offers extended depth of field so that you can capture huge vistas in which everything from 20 centimeters to infinity is in focus, even at its maximum f/2.8 aperture. A built-in lens hood forms an integral part of the lens barrel, keeping reflections to a minimum without getting in the way of the super wide 180° view. Four selectable internal filter settings are also built right into the lens, including: normal, O56 monochrome, B12 red reduction and A12 blue reduction for even greater creative effects than are already offered.

Aperture Range: f/2.8-22
With a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and minimum of f/22, this lens' high speed means you can capture images in darker conditions using faster shutter speeds and lower ISO sensitivity.
For Sony Alpha & Minolta DSLRs
Optimized for Sony Alpha & Minolta cameras, this lens becomes the 35mm equivalent of a 24mm lens, with a narrower 120° angle of view, when attached to smaller cropped APS-C cameras.
4x Built-In Rotating Filters & Lens Hood
This lens has four different built-in filters that can be selected by simply rotating a dial on the lens. Choose between filters including Normal for an unaltered view, 056 for accented contrast in black and white photos, B12 to correct color by eliminating red tones, and A12 to correct color by eliminating blue tones.
180° Wide Viewing Angle
With an exaggerated perspective and creative visual distortion, this fisheye lens brings images closer to the focal plane for a view beyond the ability of human eye, and extraordinary corner-to-corner sharpness and greater depth.
7x Circular Aperture Blades
Circular aperture blades produce smooth, rounded bokeh background effects when capturing spot-light sources in your pictures. Because the aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

    Comments about Sony 16mm f/2.8 Alpha A-Mount Fisheye Lens:

    It's a pricey lens, but it allows some creativity not found in any other type of lens. Fisheye has been around for a long time, there's a reason for that. the images produced add something different.

            My son brought the Yankee ticket for me as Father's Day present. I thought to take the Yankee Stadium using a Fisheye lens, therefore, I order it from B&H. [...]The photos I took are great! I am very happy with it.

                  getting good clear pictures from it an an a850. very wide angle and nice fish eye distortion. just be aware of the type of lense you are buying here.

                  only negative is the front of the lens is exposed more than usual. I guess the bag you get for protection works, but it is a little odd.

                    Comments about Sony 16mm f/2.8 Alpha A-Mount Fisheye Lens:

                    I bought this for a weekend of shooting downtown Indianapolis and some other cool areas. I loved it. All the time i saw fisheye i always see those cheap "bubble" looking and i was glad to know this didn't do that. Its definitely nicer and depending on use, can really give you a nice large wide view on a city line or waterfall. Only thing i don't like about it is the lens cover doesn't seem too secure, doesn't fall off but i would of liked something a little more secure. As well as you can't put any filters on it like a circular polarizer. Love it though, definitively nice to have wish it was a lot cheaper though.
