Ultra-Wide Portable Prime

Presenting an ultra-wide field of view, the Sony FE 20mm f/1.8 G is a sleek and wide-eyed prime lens characterized by its portability, advanced optical design, and intuitive handling. It's an ideal companion for a range of subjects, from architecture and interiors to landscape to vlogging, and the sleek size makes it a go-to wide-angle option for everyday and travel shooting.

G Lens Series

  • Two AA (Advanced Aspherical) elements help to greatly reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to accurately render scenes with a high degree of sharpness.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
  • Nano AR Coating has been applied to minimize surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and helps to maintain a relatively compact form factor.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Autofocus and Handling

  • Dual XD Linear Motor system, along with an internal focusing design, provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance that suits both photo and video applications.
  • Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
  • Despite being an ultra-wide prime, the sleek design still accepts front 67mm threaded filters for easier creative control.

Compact, Portable Design

  • Weighing just 12.3 oz, this sleek lens is an ideal choice for vlogging and walk-around shooting applications, and makes a great companion to APS-C-format cameras and working with gimbals or accessory grips.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
  • Fluorine-coated front element resists dust, moisture, and fingerprints and is easy to clean.

It's a very good lens, over better for its price. Sharp images, solid construction, small and light weight.

I got this lens to use on a gimbal for video. I've only had it out on a couple of occasions but it looks great, is fast for low light situations, and is light which makes balance a snap. Using it with an A7IV and FX6.

Came with scratches on lens surface and fingerprint smudges. I am a long and loyal customer but this is unacceptable

Using this 20mm in so many different ways now and I am having a blast with it. Still want to take it out at night, but very happy!

A G-Master Lens for the right price!

Honestly, after testing both the 24mm G-Master and this... I prefer getting the 20mm and a bunch of other lens accessories or even an entire additional lens! Much more versatile for what I'm shooting!

Arches and the Milky Way!

I have been using it around the yard for the last couple days and am heading to Moab to do a workshop at Arches National Park Wednesday so that is when I want to really put it to work. Will have more info after that.
