    What are your thoughts re Sony SEL 16mm and additional VCL-ECU1 0.75x E-Mount Wide Angle Conversion Lens? Worth it? It would be mounted onto the Nex 6. I've been told that I should invest in a good wide angle prime lens. While I have my eye on the Zeiss 24mm, dishing out the $$ isn't an option today. Looking for something that will be good, knowing full well it won't be GREAT! Thoughts?? Ideas? Input??

    It is a viable option if you aren't going to print large, shoot with critical things in the corners, or don't shoot wide angle very often. Maybe less so if you do those things. A bit of searching on the web will find threads where users claim IQ actually improved using the adapter. YMMV
