Being suitable for video shooting on both full-frame and APS-C bodies, it is a valuable addition to our lens lineup.”
Exceptionally high-resolution image with exquisite bokeh
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 meters (max. magnification: 0.2 times) and delivers beautiful bokeh.
Lightweight and portable design
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 lightweight 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.
Sony’s proprietary extreme dynamic linear motors achieve fast, precise, quiet autofocus
The frame uses two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors to deliver fast, precise and quiet autofocusing for both stills and video shooting.
