Hiroyuki Tokuno, Head of Digital Imaging Division, Sony India said “Sony is committed to offer camera enthusiasts the best in class E-Mount system with XD linear motor. The new SEL20F18G lens creates a perfect combination of image quality and performance, enhancing the experience of both photographers and videographers. Being suitable for video shooting on both full-frame and APS-C bodies, it is a value addition to our lens line-up.”

1. 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 metres (max. magnification: 0.2 times) and delivers beautiful bokeh.

2. 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 light weight 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.

3. Sony’s proprietary extreme dynamic linear motors achieve fast, precise, quiet auto focus

The frame uses two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors to deliver fast, precise and quiet auto focusing for both stills and video shooting.

4. Highly reliable and easy to operate compact lens

Designed to be dust and moisture resistant with a fluorine front element coating, the FE 20mm F1.8 G is highly reliable and easy to operate. It offers 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 for extra creative control.

5. Sony’s technology supporting advanced moviemaking

This lens is optically designed to minimize critical issues of moviemaking including the breathing focus by a precision internal focus mechanism. It is also exceptionally suited for video with a linear motor that takes on the vital role of ‘wobbling’ to providing high-speed actuation for the contrast AF detection system, for smooth, continuous AF with a good combination of gimbal stabilizer.
