Product Description

Product Description

This rigorously corrected lens gives you a wide angle of view for images that benefit from dramatic perspective with minimum distortion. It's an ideal choice for covering spread-out scenes that you can't get far enough away from to cover with a "normal" lens. Meticulous attention has been paid to minimizing flare and internal reflection in this advanced design, with the result that excellent sharpness and contrast are maintained through the image.

20mm F2.8 Wide-Angle Prime Lens

This rigrously corrected lens gives you a wide angle of view for images that benefit from dramatic perspective with minimum distortion. It's an ideal choice for covering spread-out scenes that you can't get far enough away from to cover with a "normal" lens. Meticulous attention has been paid to minimizing flare and internal reflection in this advanced design, with the result that excellent sharpness and contrast are maintained through the image.

Technology

Circular Aperture

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

Additional Features

Rear focusing elements

Only the rear groups of the optical system move to focus the lens, which allows for speedy AF operation and a shorter minimum focusing distance. Since the front of the lens does not rotate, operability is improved when shooting with a polarizing filter attached.

It captured some truly amazing pictures.
Aubrey L. Harns
I mainly use a 24-70mm Zeiss, but the extra 4mm is really worth changing lenses when you can't back up far enough.

I like this lens very much because of its design, quality of construction and material.

My husband purchased this lens for my trip to South Africa - it did not disappoint. It captured some truly amazing pictures. Wonderful wide angle lens, crips photos, and doesn't even take up much space in my camera bag - I couldn't have asked for anything better!

I use this lens on an Alpha 850, and it's ideal for interior and exterior architecture as well as landscape. I should have purchased this lens rather than Sony's 16mm fisheye. The 16mm is fun, but the distortion only fits certain scenes and warp correction in Photoshop has its limits. The 20mm focuses very fast and is sharp at f5.6 and above. I mainly use a 24-70mm Zeiss, but the extra 4mm is really worth changing lenses when you can't back up far enough.

I like this lens very much because of its design, quality of construction and material. It gave my pictures great sharpness, good brightness, and color accuracy. I think it's worth the money to own one.

This lens is identically the same as the Konica Minolta Autofocus 20mm f/2.8 Lens for Maxxum SLR Cameras which is a great lens.
They are useable at f2.8, sharper at f4, and being wonderful at f5.6-f11. For sharper image with this lens, you may use the "front focus trick" If you have full frame A-mount camera, this lens is a must lens.
Light fall-off is noticeable wide open, but is nearly gone at F/4. Coma is bad at F/2.8, but looks better at F/4.
This lens has a fairly hefty price tag of $748 brand new from most legitimate dealers, but also consider the Minolta branded versions Konica Minolta Autofocus 20mm f/2.8 Lens for Maxxum SLR Cameras for much less money ($450).

I recently bought the Sony SAL-20F28 wide angle lens for my Sony A55 camera. I had Amazon ship the lens directly to my hotel room, as I was on holidays. As soon as I took it out of the box, I realized I was going to be quite satisfied. The construction, look and feel are superior. Then went outside with the lens and proceeded to snap off a few test shots. When reviewing them in my hotel room on my computer, I was very amazed at the clarity and crispness of the images.
