Covering the widest angle of view in the E-mount line-up, the FE 20mm f/1.8 G is compact and weighs only 373 grams, making it a good choice for landscape photographers. Its optical design includes two AA (advanced aspherical) elements, three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements for the effective suppression of chromatic aberration and ensure high corner-to-corner image quality even at the maximum aperture. Close focusing is possible to within 19 cm of subjects and the use of two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors in the autofocusing system delivers fast, precise and quiet auto focusing for both stills and video shooting. Designed to be dust and moisture resistant and with a fluorine-coated front element, the FE 20mm f/1.8 G is highly reliable and easy to operate, even in challenging conditions. It features 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.

The new FE 20mm f/1.8 G lens will be available in Australia from 9th March 2020, for SRP AU$1,699.00. Click here for more information.
