The distance encoder plays an integral part in ADI flash metering, which delivers high precision flash metering that is unaffected by the reflectance of subjects or backgrounds. The distance encoder is a lens component that directly detects the position of the focusing mechanism, and sends a signal...

Amazing piece of glass. Possibly the best fisheye I have ever used.

I use this lens with my A900 and it works perfectly. Fantastic shots possilbe. Rapid focus. Decent corner quality. Very hard not to get your fingers and feet into the picture. Hilareous close ups. Once you've run the image through curvature correction you'll see how great it is to have.

The wide range of focus, depth of field and exceptional color clarity makes it most useful

    I think I might like to put a polarizer on it when shooting scenics.

A very good lens. As with all fish eye lenses, you must learn how to get the best from it. It is not a landscape lens and will distort verticals. This attribute can be used to good effect. Get in quite close to the subject and don't worry about horizons or verticals.

Not a ZEISS but it gives me the distortion that I was looking for. This is my play lens that I use to distort the world.

Just fantastic. Works from day one. Fantastic lens!

It is a great lens for specific uses. Gives dramatic pictures. My only concern is that it seems to be a gray market lens. Needs to be sent to Germany for repairs. However I have never needed to repair a lens. I am happy with the lens. \ I would recommend it to others.

The optics on this lens seem very good. I wondered how much it would differ from the 16mm end of the 16-35 zoom. I found you need to look at the field of view to understand the difference. This lens gives a 180 field of view and is a true fish eye. A nice addition to my kit.

Well pleased with this lens. The photos are rich in colour, definition. I use it with my Sony Nex 5R camera with an Adaptor. I wouldrecommend this lens.
