Sony is adding a FE 20 millimetre F1.8 G fixed focal length (SEL-20F18G) for full-frame cameras to its G Lens portfolio. The new FE 20mm F1.8G comes with an adjustable focus hold button and an aperture ring with an ON/OFF click switch. A declickable iris should be a welcome feature especially for video users.
Sony specifies the minimum focusing distance as 0.19 meters. The weight is a comparatively light 373 grams.
In terms of dust and moisture protection, Sony speaks of "dust and moisture resistant" (- however, complete resistance explicitly doesn't go along with this). Autofocus is provided by two integrated XD linear motors, which are designed to ensure fast, precise and quiet focusing in both photo and video mode.
The filter holder is designed for 67-millimetre screw filter, the orifice plate consists of 9 lamellas.
The new Sony FE 20mm F1.8G will be available from March 2020 at an RRP of 1.099,00 Euro.
