Sony NEX Fisheye converter review   

The Sony VCL-ECF1 is a cool little add-on lens for people wanting a fisheye experience using the Sony NEX system.  While this converter is not an optical masterpiece, it actually works well, and can be very fun if you know
how to use it.  It’s not for ‘getting it all in’ in a general sense, so don’t use it simply as you would a wide angle lens.  Check out my boring Sony 16/2.8 fisheye review for ideas, or Flickr for interesting fisheye compositions, some good, some bad.
Sad, but true, for about the same price of the Sony 16/2.8 fisheye lens, you can get the Sony NEX-5N, 16mm pancake lens, and the fisheye converter, which works almost as good!
