    Comments about Bower 8mm f/3.5 Super Wide Angle Fisheye Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras:

    It's not noted anywhere in the product description that a camera cannot automatically set the aperture on this lens. Wish I had known that before I bought. Focus is manual as well. Image quality looks good so far. The lens is larger and heavier than I expected about 4.5" long and 450 grams. Guess I need to read the description more carefully next time.

    Good value lens

    Comments about Bower 8mm f/3.5 Super Wide Angle Fisheye Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras:

    Does the job pretty well. Not distorted on the edges, good f stop, and super simple to use. Shooting snowboarding video with it. A little on the heavy side, but it works well with the glide gear DNA 1000
