    Hello all ,

    I have just got the FE28F2 to be used on my a6000 and I am now considering to get the UWA 21mm f2.8 converter. Many reviews are saying that the converter is soft on the sides , however I am wondering if it will perform well on a crop sensor considering the worst is being cropped , anyone with experience with this combination.

    I tend to use ND filters alot for long exposures. That can't be reproduced in post. I had the UWA convertor for the 16mm f2.8. I liked the combinatuion but not being able to use filters was frustrating.

    I have never made use of filters yet but I will take that into consideration , the only reason I can imagine needing a filter is long exposures in broad daylight. But I am wondering whether that setup will be sharper then the Sigma 19mm. The convenience of changing FL without exposing the sensor is also a win for me..

    Moreover it needs to be clearly better then the SEL16-50 @21mm to justify the purchase !
