Adding to its range of native full-frame E-mount lenses, Sony today announced the launch of a new G Lens series, the FE 20mm F1.8 G (Model name SEL20F18G).
The FE 20mm F1.8 G is a compact, lightweight, ultra-wide prime – the widest full-frame prime lens in the E-mount line-up – which gives Sony’s full-frame users more freedom to shoot landscapes and starscapes as well as capturing video.
The smart lens design features two AA (advanced aspherical) elements, three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements for the effective suppression of chromatic aberration and delivery of high corner-to-corner image quality even at the maximum aperture F1.8. It has a minimum focus distance of 0.19 metres (max. magnification: 0.2 times) and delivers beautiful bokeh.
Weighing only 373g, its small size and light weight make it truly mobile when used with compact E-mount bodies.
In addition, the use of two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors delivers fast and quiet auto focusing for both stills and video shooting.
Designed to be dust and moisture resistant and having a fluorine front element coating, the FE 20mm F1.8 G is highly reliable and easy to operate. It offers a customisable focus hold button and an aperture ring with a click on/off switch. It is also compatible with a variety of 67mm filters for extra creative control.
The FE 20mm F1.8 G will be available in Europe from March 2020, priced at approximately €1100 Euros.
