Best Buy Customer Reviews

Great wide angle4 Posted by: from: on This is a great landscape lens. Panoramic pictures are so easy. I have not tried the fish eye or wide adapters, but hope to. Other reviews have said that it is soft around the edges, but I don't see anything different.

Awesome lens5 Posted by: from: on I love this lens! Its build quality is fantastic, and it provides a great image. The 16mm field of view is very wide, and the f/2.8 Make it excellent in low light, and give an awesome range for depth of field. Sony lenses are my favorite lenses that I've used so far, and for the price, it doesn't get much better than this lens.

Excellent Lens5 Posted by: from: seattle on Bought this lens for mostly night shots and I also use it for general uses. I am shooting with the A6000 and it works very well. Night shots are crisp and clear. No distortion near edge of photos that I can see. (Note: no clear nights since I bought this, go figure. However the lens picked up stars between the cloud breaks and it was very clear, clouds, star, trees) For the money this is an excellent lens. Hope Sony can start making f/1,2 lenses.

Great Lens for a great camera5 Posted by: from: on I can't say enough about my Sony A6000. I love it and would recommend it to anybody. I bought this lens because I like to shoot more on the wide angle side, but needed something faster than the kit lens. I wanted wide angle without having to spend almost $800 for the wider angle zoom lens. I bought this lens to go along with the Ultra Wide Converter (VCL-ECU2), which gives make the lens the equivalent of about 15mm. For me, this was perfect. It's a fixed, and while I would like a zoom lens, this pushes me to be more creative and move around to get the photo I want. I really have no complaints and think the quality and price is great.

Decent Wide Angle Lens4 Posted by: from: on I use this lens to take landscape photos on my Sony A6000. The lens does indeed take wide shots and I would say it's pretty crisp. I'm not an expert on photography so I can give a simpleton review. However I would definitely not use this for simple street photography because the lens will make objects seem small. Unless you're trying to achieve that look then go ahead. Though I feel as if the Ultra Wide Angle Converter is almost necessary to obtain an even cleaner, sharper photo look. Also if you want to take selfies, this is the lens for you! Using this lens on the A6000 does make the camera look like a point and shoot therefore giving a compact look! The quality is pretty good and I expect it to last until I will get my next camera.
