This dedicated conversion lens for the FE 28 mm F2 provides 16 mm focal length with fisheye perspective and a full 180° angle of view (diagonally). The converter has been specifically designed for the FE 28 mm F2, and therefore offers expressive fisheye perspective with excellent image quality from infinity down to the closest focusing distance, without compromising the basic image quality of the lens. The sophisticated design seamlessly matches the lens, and is dust and moisture resistant for maximum reliability.
The world looks quite different at a focal length of 16 mm and with a 180° angle of view, and that difference can give you a new way to realize your artistic vision, or simply provide some new photographic fun. It’s a world that every photographer should explore.
The Fisheye Converter has been specifically designed for use with the FE 28 mm F2.0 lens. It integrates seamlessly with the precision FE 28 mm F2 optical path so that optimum resolution and image quality are ensured. Other than focal length, the only change is that the maximum aperture becomes F3.5 when the converter is attached.
A sensor system detects the converter when mounted so that appropriate EXIF lens data is generated and recorded by the camera. That makes data management easier when you sort or process your images later.
Not only are the Fisheye Converter optics designed specifically for the FE 28 mm F2, but the visual appearance is too. The converter blends smoothly with the lens when mounted, giving the appearance of a single integrated unit.
