Rebranded version of Minolta 16mm F/2.8 Fish-eye.
The lens barrel is of moderate weight, made of plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens lacks focusing mode switch, therefore you have to set the automatic or manual focus mode from the camera. Direct Manual Focus is available.
The focusing ring rotates during autofocus which looks pretty anachronistic by today's standards. It is strongly recommended not to touch the ring or manually stop its movement because it might result in damage to the lens and/or camera.
The front element is convex therefore there's no filter thread but internal filters are available (normal, O56, A12 and B12).
