Sony FE 20mm F1.8 G Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The Sony FE 20mm F1.8 G is a sharp, bright lens with a wide angle of view. It's a top-end performer and a fine addition to your camera kit.
With the FE 20mm F1.8 G ($899.99), Sony adds a bright, wide-angle prime lens to the E-mount full-frame mirrorless system. It has plenty of appeal for photographers who want to get some bokeh in wide-angle shots or keep exposure times shorter for astrophotography. It's a well-made lens that focuses quickly and silently. The Tamron 20mm f/2.8 Di III OSD M1:2 delivers sharp images for $349, but is slower to focus and doesn't open up to f/1.8. That gives the Sony FE 20mm F1.8 G a distinct advantage and earns it our Editors' Choice. Wide and Bright Despite opening up to f/1.8, the FE 20mm is relatively light and compact. It measures 3.3 by 2.9 inches (HD), weighs 13.2 ounces, and supports 67mm front filters. Construction is sturdy polycarbonate, with seals to protect your camera from dust and splashes. The standard front and rear caps, along with a reversible lens hood, are included. The FE 20mm offers full-frame coverage, something absent from Sony's other 20mm prime, the E 20mm F...
Pros: 
  • Wide-angle view
  • Crisp, bright optics
  • Focuses close
  • Quick, quiet autofocus
  • Dust and splash resistant
  • Clickless or detent operation for aperture ring
Cons: 
  • Pricey
  • Shows some focus breathing
