    it's just a fun adaptor and it looks like I'll have a bit of fun with it, at 85 GBP I think it's worth it.
    heres a couple of shots this morning,I never ventured farther than the back garden for obvious reasons.

    Pretty nice adapter, although I'd like the fish eye effect to be a little more pronounced for my tastes. Either way, I'd have to get the prime lens first so £200 isn't really worth it!

    If you drink the two bottles in pic #1 together your view gets the same WITHOUT any fisheye converter or adapter... ;-)
    Have fun with it!

    no that was an Amazon uk direct, it arrived within 2 days of order, you need the 16mm pancake as this is a supplementary lens that screws on to the 16mm lens, I bought the nex 5 with the 16mm lens so I already had it, they are generally retailing on amazon for around 140.00 but there is a split kit brand new one on for 103.00,so to buy the lot would be around £200.00 , money that would be better spent on different equipment

    Thanks for posting. I have the 16mm and the wide view adapter which I really like with this lens. Been thinking about the fisheye...just don't know how much I'd use it.

    Looks like Buddha is well prepared to handle the elements!

    Just checked that out, very good price only one left at £82.51 but states more on the way. They're also doing the ultra wide converter for only £75.80!
    I'm very tempted by the fisheye but I reckon I wouldn't use it much, considering I really must buy some sort of bag 1st!!!

    I think those bottles have been sampling each others wares. :)
