    Has anyone tried the new crop sensor wide angle converter VCL-ECU2 with the FE 28mm lens in crop mode?
    The older silver colored converter mounts but does not autofocus.
    I have A7RII with the FE 28mm and 16mm 2.8 pancake. I use the pancake lens only for lowlight video when i need wider angle.
    The full frame wide angle converter works with both the FE28mm and the 16mm pancake but it is heavy.
    Would be nice to use one converter with both lenses.

    There's a thread about the converter and the FE 28mm lens but they have the older converter.

    I believe the only difference between the VLC-ECU1 and 2 is the colour. Oh and price it would seem Sony are charging a premium for being black.

    I think they are the new ones. I don't have the new ones, but the older ones released for 16mm. New ones were reported to be working with RX1 full frame 32mm lens. I tried the older ones and they are not, since they were designed for apsc lens. That is the difference eg one has full frame coverage vs other one is for apsc sensor. I don't know if anybody has both sets to try...
