Sony continues to improve its E-mount lineup, with this wide-angle prime lens, the FE 20mm f1.8G. With this mirrorless system showing no signs of slowing down, it's comforting that Sony continues to offer users with lenses that will still be useful to them as they grow - this lens works perfectly on both the APS-C and full-frame mirrorless models.

For landscapes, street scenes and similar, this is a lens that you must have in your kit.
With its fast f1.8 maximum aperture, this Sony prime lens is a good fit for handheld purposes. This is particularly true when taking into account the low-light performance of the Sony E-Mount mirrorless cameras. Sony has rightly stated that this lens, with its wide focal length and fast maximum aperture, will be a great fit for starscape photography.
This lens is compact and lightweight in build, yet it has still been made to exacting standards, with Aspherical and ED elements on board to deliver outstanding sharpness and resolution, right to the corners of the frame. There is a noticeable absence of distortions and aberrations, detriments that most commonly plague lenses of this type. Keeping up with you as you use your Sony Mirrorless camera to shoot continuous frames of still images, as well as high-resolution video files, the Sony FE 20mm f1.8G lens utilises XD linear motors, which are suitably fast, smooth and quiet in performance.
