    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.

                      Well-designed, crisp photos. Only drawback is no lense cover for Fisheye
