Adding to its extensive range of native full-frame E-mount lenses, Sony today announced the launch of a new G LensTM series, the FE 20mm F1.8 G (Model name SEL20F18G). Ensuring excellent G Lens resolution and bokeh, 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 stunning landscapes and starscapes as well as capturing impressive 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 excellent close-up performance with a minimum focus distance of 0.19 metres (max. magnification: 0.2 times) and delivers beautiful bokeh.

The compact design and versatility of the FE 20mm F1.8 G make it the perfect all-rounder for photographers and videographers. Weighing only 373g, its small size and light weight make it truly mobile when used with compact E-mount bodies as part of a well-balanced system that is ideal for use on gimbals or accessory grips.

In addition, the use of two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors delivers fast, precise and quiet auto focusing for both stills and video shooting.

Designed to be dust and moisture resistant[i] 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.

“One of the key pillars of our lens development strategy is listening to what our customers want from us and a large amount of landscape photographers who shoot with our E-mount system have asked for a fast, ultra-wide prime lens that is extremely light and versatile,” said Yann Salmon Legagneur, Director of Product Marketing, Digital Imaging, Sony Europe. “We feel that the new SEL20F18G hits the sweet spot in combining image quality, portability, superb AF performance and price. Being suitable for video shooting on both full-frame and APS-C bodies, it is an important addition to our lens line-up.”

Sony 30mm F3.5 lens is the perfect Macro Lens for Sony A6400. The lens captures tack sharp images at 1:1 proportion and features very well controlled Chromatic aberration.
