Sony’s Mirrorless cameras are pretty amazing. The Alpha series from Sony is the most popular Mirrorless Camera. However, every camera needs a set of lenses for those amazing shots. Although Sony has lenses for the Alpha cameras, this is something new. Today, Sony announced the new addition to their Full-Frame Lens line up – the Sony FE20mmF1.8G, which is the new G Lens Line up. And features? Well, you have to continue reading!
Sony FE20mmF1.8G – an entirely new lineup!
The first camera lens in the entire lineup, the Sony FE20mmF1.8G comes with a bigger aperture, along with the Ultra-Wide-Angle capabilities.
The Lens is power and effective enough for many scenarios like Portrait shots with those amazing background blur, landscape shots or recording videos.
The lens is so lightweight and compact, that you can carry it with ease in your backpack, without adding unnecessary bulk on your shoulders.
The lens features two advanced aspherical elements, in short AA, and three extra-low dispersion glass elements, in short, ED. All these elements together ensure that the chromatic aberration is suppressed, and a high-quality corner to corner image, with the minimum distortion, is the end result. Moreover, you will get the same result even at the highest aperture.
Oh, and the highest aperture of the lens is f/1.8. The lens has an excellent close-up performance, with a minimum focal distance of 7.5-inches and a maximum zoom of 0.2. This makes the bokeh effect even more perfect. And being a photographer, night time is a challenge. But Sony’s FE20mmF1.8G has your back!
Be it the starry night sky, or dark night time, this lens will capture crisp and clear images. The thanks go to the advanced optical design of the lens, which accurately reproduces point light source with high contrast, and less the sagittal flare.
And the inbuilt Extreme Dynamic linear motors ensure quiet, precise, and faster autofocus for that instant photography.
Oh, and didn’t I tell you at the beginning that the lens is a lightweight lens? Well, with a weight of 373g or 13.2oz, makes it compact and ultra-light for portability.
The Sony FE20mmF1.8G is a water and dust resistant, not proof, and has a fluorine front coating. The lens also features a customizable focus hold button and also an aperture ring with an on/off switch and has compatibility with other 67mm filters.

The official model number of the lens is SEL20F18G. The suggested retail price of the lens is $899.99 or $1,199 CAD and will be available for purchase this March.
