The Sony 20mm G lens is a wide-angle lens designed for Sony's full frame mirrorless camera range, but also works with their APS-C cameras.

It's sharp and quick, making it ideal for landscape photography, close-ups and more.

Wide Angle Clarity

Sony’s 20mm f1.8 wide-angle prime lenslets you capture a wonderfully wide landscapes while giving you the freedom to still get up close and personal with smaller subjects and tighter framing. Designed for Sony’s full frame mirrorless camera line-up, the lens is also right at home on their APS-C range where it offers the equivalent of a 30mm focal length which makes it great for things like environmental portraits.

Bright Aperture f/1.8 and Separate Control Ring

A bright f/1.8 aperture gives you the flexibility to keep working even when you’re in tough or changing lighting conditions, like going from dusk to nightfall. Speaking of lowlight, this lens makes an excellent astrophotography companion thanks to its large aperture sharp optics. There’s also a separate aperture ring, a first for the G lens series, making control even more intuitive.

Autofocus That’s Fast, Precise and Smooth

Driving the autofocus system are two XD (eXtreme Dynamic) Linear Motors that perfectly complementsthe high-speed functionality of Sony’s camera bodies. Combined with new control algorithms, the resulting autofocus is incredibly snappywhile still being smooth, precise and nearly silent.

Get Up Close and Personal with Short Minimum Focus

Aside from shooting wide-angle landscapes, the 20mm lens is has a minimum focusing distance of just 0.19m in AF modeor 0.18m when focused manually. This lets you get up close and personal with subjects and makes it a great choice for video efforts as well.The focus hold button is set right out of the box butcan also be assigned to select other functions using your camera body’s menu.

Blessed with Beautiful Bokeh

A rounded 9-blade diaphragm paired with the wide f1.8 aperture delivers lovely and smooth bokeh effects in the out of focus background and highlight areas of your images. This look works really well for your close-up shots, helping make your subject really pop from the background.

Advanced Optical Design and Superb Image Quality

The optical construction features 14 elements arranged in 12 groups. It includes 2 AA (advanced aspherical) elements and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to minimise distortion and colour aberrations so your images are sharp, clear, and beautifully vibrant.
