The new Sony FE 20mm F/1.8G is designed to deliver exceptional image-quality in a light-weight and relatively compact design. Its durable body is weatherproof and features a declickable aperture-ring and focus-hold button, plus the usual AF/MF switch. The front of the lens accommodates standard 67mm filters. This 20mm offers features for photography and videography, including a silent linear autotfocus motor. A switch on the side of the lens, allows the aperture-ring to rotate smoothly without stops.

With its combination of bright optics and ultra-wide angle-of-view, the Sony FE 20mm F/1.8G is  ideal for various types of night photography, from architecture to astrophotography.  This is attractive lens for travel photographers capturing images in interiors of monuments, churches and temples.

Sony expects this new lens to ship next month for $900 USD or $1200 CAD. Both Adorama and B&H Photo are already accepting pre-orders at the previous links.
