    20,7mm f1.7 :)

    I just got the protama 0.6x wide angle adapter for nex. Most people get it to turn their 16mm into a 9,6mm (14,4mm EQV), but Im going to test it this weekend with the SLR Magic 23mm f1.7 (49mm filter thread), getting a 13,6mm f1.7 (20,7mm).

    My first impression of the Protama is that its big but its very very light. I put it quickly on the 16mm and it could focus perfectly with no stress. With some distortion correction it could be really fun to use.

    Anyway, Ill try to post some tests this weekend.

    There is distortion and there is softness:

    16mm straight up


    16mm + 0.6X Protama


    23mm f1.7


    23mm f1.7 + 0.6X Protama

    23mm 1.7 + Protama wide angle (some heavy distortion)



    Practical use in low light...me doing crazy faces in front of the mirror (excellent stuff for my next passport)

    Instead of taking the 16mm for location scouting for a music video I will shoot this month, I decided to take the 23mm f1.7 with the 0,6X protama wide angle adapter attached to it. The corner softness is really bad. I can see my self using this lens on a music video that requires some sort of dream look. The softness isnt as bad when I use it with the 16mm though.
