John, Crawley Keen photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Makes the Sony NEX C3 a very light and compact camera but it has a professional image quality.
Bad points:
It is only a little wider angle than the zoom lens SEL 1855 so buying this lens in addition to the zoom lens is a bit of a waste of money.

Gary, Dersingham

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Crisp compact easy to carry lens
Bad points:
Buy the SEL 18 - 55mm instead, a much better all round lens! 16mm use is just too limited

John,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Small, light and very cheap this is a great wide angle lens capable of some stunning results, especially for the price. Stopped down (f5.6 to f11) its surprisingly sharp.
Sharp centres at F2.8 but...
Bad points:
... the corner sharpness at f2.8 is poor and the lens suffers from some distortion. (Newer Nex cameras will compensate for the distortion in camera when shooting jpeg)
