Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens

A straightforward wide-angle prime featuring a modestly bright maximum aperture, the FE 28mm f/2 is a simple lens offering a versatile and broad field of view. Despite its conventional focal length and design, this 28mm lens features a series of specialized elements to correct various aberrations and distortions for high sharpness and clarity. A linear AF motor and internal focusing design contribute to fast performance, and the lens is also weather resistant for working in a variety of outdoor conditions. For a bit more versatility, a pair of dedicated conversion lenses—the 21mm Ultra-Wide and the 16mm Fisheye—can be attached to the 28mm to further broaden its field of view for ultra-wide applications.

Applications: A conventional wide-angle prime that is well suited for street shooting, architectural subjects, and landscapes, this lens excels due to its sleek form factor and compatibility with dedicated conversion lenses for expanding its wide-angle field of view even further.
