Ultra-Wide, True-to-Life Imagery
With its ultra-wide perspective and advanced optical design, the Sony FE 20mm f1.8 G lens captures more of the world, as you see it. Two AA (advanced aspherical) elements reduce aberrations for images that look true to life from corner to corner, even at the lens’ widest f1.8 aperture. This, coupled with a large, 9-blade circular aperture, produces dreamily soft bokeh to beautifully emphasise your subject. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements help to minimise sagittal flare, ensuring that point light sources like stars are rendered cleanly and realistically.
Remarkable Portability, Handling & Durability
Remarkably compact and lightweight, the Sony FE 20mm f1.8 G lens isn’t just perfect for travel and long handheld shoots. It’s also ideal for mounting on a gimbal or grip for vlogging and other applications. Unlike a lot of ultra-wide-angle lenses, the lens accepts circular filters – giving outdoor photographers and video shooters greater convenience and accessory choice. A fluorine coated front element repels water and dirt while a dust- and moisture-resistant design ensures you can shoot with confidence in challenging conditions.
Maximum Focusing Speed & Precision
Capture even the most dynamic subjects, from kids running amok to air show displays. The Sony FE 20mm f1.8 G lens features two XD (eXtreme Dynamic) Linear Motors, which allow it to take full advantage of the most advanced Sony cameras’ autofocus (AF) speed, accuracy and tracking performance. New control algorithms ensure silent, responsive autofocus with low vibration and no delays.
Superb Close-Up Shooting for Selfies & More
A minimum focusing distance of just 19cm in AF mode (18cm in MF mode) gives the Sony FE 20mm f1.8 G lens superb close-up capabilities. Better yet, its 20mm focal length is perfect for capturing selfies – either from your hand or from a gimbal.
Easy to Operate, Professionally Reliable
The Sony FE 20mm f1.8 G lens’ cleverly designed and positioned controls enable effortless shooting for both stills and video. Assign your preferred functions to the focus hold button so you can access them straight from the lens. De-click the aperture ring with the flick of a switch to enjoy smooth, silent iris operation for video. A focus mode switch makes it easy to change between auto and manual focus, and Linear Response MF ensures that every focus ring rotation corresponds proportionately with focusing changes.
