FE 20 mm F1.8 G
A compact high-resolution 20 mm F1.8 primeSony's latest optical technology achieves impressive corner-to-corner resolution from maximum F1.8 aperture in a large-aperture wide-angle prime lens. It is also remarkably compact. Matched with an E-mount body this lens makes up a mobile system with outstanding AF performance, control and reliability for a wide variety of shooting needs.
Superb AF speed, precision and trackingTwo XD (eXtreme Dynamic) Linear Motors easily keep up with Sony's high-speed camera bodies, taking full advantage of their AF speed, precision and tracking potential. New control algorithms make it possible to drive the lens's large focus group smoothly and without delays for responsive, silent, low-vibration auto focus.
Compact and lightweight for enhanced mobility and handlingAn advanced optical design that includes two AA elements is supported by a refined mechanical system in a G Lens that weighs just 373 g (13.2 oz). Small size and light weight enhance mobility when used with compact E-mount bodies, and make up a well-balanced system that is ideal for use on gimbals or accessory grips. The FE 20 mm F1.8 G is a versatile lens for a wide variety of still and movie shooting situations.
Excellent close-up performance, even for selfiesIn addition to the fact that 20 mm is a great focal length for selfies, this lens has a minimum focusing distance of just 0.19 m (0.63 ft) when used in AF mode, and an even closer 0.18 m (0.59 ft) minimum focusing distance when focused manually. It is an excellent choice for gimbal/grip mounting, whether shooting selfies or other subjects.
Nano AR Coating for crisp contrastSony's original Nano AR Coating creates a precise, regular nanostructure on lens surfaces that does not interfere with light transmission, while suppressing reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. Internal reflections are reduced to an absolute minimum, achieving outstanding clarity and contrast. (1. Nano AR Coating / 2. Glass / 3. Transmitted light).
30 mm equivalent on APS-C bodiesThis lens also balances well on smaller APS-C format bodies, providing a very useful wide-angle focal length of 30 mm (full-frame format equivalent). 30 mm is great for taking snapshots around town, shooting the scenery while hiking or mountain climbing, and much more. The SEL20F18G is highly recommended for APS-C as well as full-frame users.
Sony's movie technology supports advanced moviemakingMoviemaking advantages include fast, precise AF and tracking provided by the lens's XD Linear Motors, an ultra-wide 20-mm angle of view on full-frame bodies (30 mm on APS-C bodies or with Super 35 angle of view settings), a bright F1.8 maximum aperture, compact and lightweight design, excellent close-up performance and more. In addition to the lens's small size and light weight, its internal focus design makes it convenient for use on compact gimbals or grips for vlogging and other applications.
Accepts a variety of filtersUnlike many other ultra-wide-angle lenses, the lens accepts circular polarizing filters for landscapes, ND filters for movies, and other filter types so the user has full creative control.
