How does this compare to the 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 kit ...

How does this compare to the 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens? Is it worth getting if I've already got the kit lens?
Asked by: Troy
This is probably one of the best lenses you can get for e-mount. And it's cheap. If you're a very good photographer, you might be able to get away with using the kit lens and still pull good shots. I'm a novice and I shot noticeably better images with this lens. The main draw for me was the size. It's half the height of the kit lens from the camera body, and I can fit my 5100 in my pocket very easily. At first I thought this would be a wide angle lens, then I realized it's 33mm in full frame equivalent. So think of this as a very portable, clear shooting 35mm prime.

Will this be an actual 20mm on a Sony A7R?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is also not designed for 35mm sensors. Lenses for 35mm work on APS-C but not the other way around.

Does it allow full manual control of the focus?

Does it allow full manual control of the focus?
Asked by: Gerardo
If the camera is set to manual focus, then you would be able to use the focus ring on the front of the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 Lens to focus the lens manually. The lens does not have a built-in aperture ring, so you would have to set the aperture of the lens using the control dials on your camera body.

Will this work for full-format Sony cameras, like the a9?

Physically this will mount on a full frame camera such as the A9 however it will need to be shot in apsc or super 35 mode to avoid vignetting.
