SONY SEL057FEC Fisheye Converter for SEL28F20
This is a dedicated fisheye converter for SONY's E-mount SEL28F20 FE 28mm F2. It turns the original lens to 15mm F3.5 diagonal fisheye lens and gives a 180-degree view which condenses the world into one frame. And, your never need to worry about the loss of image quality and handling thanks to its high optical performance and the quick releasing. And, together with the ultra wide converter, it triples the usability of the 28mm F2 lens.

At first, I wanted to shoot through the front windshield, but the spot had already been occupied. So, I decided to shoot the situation itself. The wide angle worked to express the mood in the train and the view ahead of them looks very sharp.
It was hard to fill the entire frame with her emotion... Her skin looks so realistic that I cannot believe it was shot with a converter. And, the distortion of the fisheye lens is fun to play with.
I was familiar to this place. But, with this special eye, it looks different.
A fisheye for everyday use
Because of the extreme character, not everyone go so far to buy a fisheye lens even though they are interested. However, getting this converter is much easier thanks to the high performance. Releasing is so simple and safe - just match the marks and rotate it until you hear the click sound. The lens with a built-in shade doesn't look like a typical fisheye and some people may welcome this more ordinary look. Another welcome feature of this converter is the automatic transmission of the Exif data to the camera (it says FE 16mm F3.5 Fisheye on PC). If you want to get a different view from your 28mm, don't hesitate.
