    “One of the key points of our lens development strategy is that we listen to the wishes of our customers, as well as the community of landscape photographers who use our E-mount system to shoot and ask them to give them a fast ultra-wide prime lens, which would be compact, lightweight and versatile.

    We believe the new SEL20F18G lens hits the mark with a combination of image quality, portability, superior autofocus, and price. It is an important addition to our lens range because it supports video shooting with both full-frame cameras and APS-C format cameras, ”said Yann Salmon-Legagneur, Digital Imaging Product Marketing Director for Sony Europe.

    The lens design includes two aspherical elements and three of ED-glass. According to the manufacturer, this combination suppresses the effect of chromatic aberration and ensures stable image quality over the entire frame area, even with f/1.8 aperture fully open. The lens is suitable for close-up shooting with a minimum focusing distance of 0.19 meters (maximum magnification of 0.2x) and supports the background blur effect.

    The lens is protected from high humidity and dust by a special fluorine-containing coating. The model has a customizable focus lock button and aperture ring, which operates in two modes: with clicks and silently. The FE 20 mm F1.8 G is also compatible with 67 mm filters for creative shooting. The XD linear actuator provides low vibration for fast and quiet autofocus.

    The new product will go on sale in April 2020.
