You can do so much with the widest field of view a lens can give you, and with Sony's FE 20mm F/1.8 G, you've got what it takes for landscapes and portrait shots that take your abilities and photos to the next level.
The FE 20mm F1/8 G is a wide-eyed prime lens that is greatly portable. However, under the hood, it has some of the most advanced lens features Sony has ever made for any lens.
Its optical architecture includes aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements to eliminate any form of distortion, noise, and other problematic artifacts in your shots.
Furthermore, its nano AR coating introduces exceptional surface reflection and flare reduction known to plague many great shots that take so much time to remove during post-processing.
Sony's new Dual XD Linear Motor System is quiet but greatly responsive. However, it's for those who like a little more manual focus control for professional and creative shots.
Outside the hood, you've got a dust-and-moisture sealed design. Its fluorine coating guarantees that it's always well-protected when your projects take you to the most inhospitable environments.
