The Sony E16mm f2.8 Lens is a light, low-profile pancake lens that fits comfortably on the front of both the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 cameras, maintaining the slimline look and slipping easily into your pocket. Great for everyday shooting, this 16mm lens contains high-quality optics including a 7 blade circular aperture for beautiful defocus effects and an aspheric surface for excellent contrast and sharpness. The lens features direct Manual Focus with a non-rotating focus ring during Auto Focus, ideal for precise, comfortable adjustments.

Outstanding compact performer

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Sony E16mm f2.8 Pancake Lens:
I wasn't too sure about this lens but I wanted the wide angle attachment and this was a prerequisite. However, it has proved to be a terrific standalone performer. It's fast, light and vey compact so is great for taking candid shots in the street when the swivelling screen of the Sony NEX-7 comes into its own.

Good buy for a Sony NEX series camera
By Jones the photo
from Bristol, UK
Changes the look of the Sony NEX such that most people think it is a much cheaper camera so are astonished by the quality of the photos. A lot easier to carry around as the lens is so compact.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Better than expected
Well this little lens has proved to be better than I thought it would be, images captured with this on the Nex-5n are really quite sharp in the f5.6 to f8 range & any issues like fringing & distortion are removed easily by Adobe camera raw software, I took a few comparison shots using the 16mm pancake & took the same shots on my D300 with the 16-85VR Nikkor (a sharp lens)& the Sony ones were surprisingly just a touch sharper in the centre & on par at the edges.I mainly shoot landscape & this used with a CSC will lighten my loads in the hills.
