The Sony ultra wide Converter is designed for the 16mm f/2.8 and 20mm f/2.8 Sony E-Mount lenses compatible with APS-C format cameras. When attached to a 16mm lens the converter reduces the focal length to a 35mm of 18mm and 24mm respectively. The shortening of the effective focal length extends the versatility of your lens, allowing you to pack more into your frame, improve the depth of field and get closer to your subject, bringing the viewer into the photo.
Unchanged Aperture Value
The converter lens mounts on the top of the existing 16mm and 20mm Sony lenses and does not change the aperture value at all. This helps you retain the fast aperture of f/2.8 and shoot at wider angles with the same ability to capture light just like the prime lenses.
The converter is extremely easy to attach using its bayonet mount. Putting it on and removing it from your lens just takes a second, saving precious moments that make for a memorable photograph.
Integrated Petal Shaped Hood
The petal shaped hood is integrated into the body of the lens itself, saving you the time required for attaching it, while helping to protect the lens and front glass element at all times. The hood also improves the quality of your photographs by adding contrast and minimising the unwanted effects of lens flare
Compact and Light Weight
The Sony Converter (VCL-ECU2) for 16 and 20mm lenses has a compact design with a less than 2 inch diameter and weighs just 125 grams, making it easy for travel photographers to fit in their camera bags.
