The short answer is yes. It's a beautifully compact bit of kit, it has limited scope for shallow depth shots at a max. aperture of 2.8, but I think the compromise is worth it. I have my 35mm 1.8 which I adore, but the 20mm is so small it literally would be stupid to not take it with you everywhere you take your camera!
I'm mainly a manual focus user, as I'm more into artistic photography than family snaps - with that said I've been to a party recently with this lens and I did use autofocus for that occasion, plus flash due to the indoor night-time environment, and I'm pleased to say it was generally very swift, only occasionally struggling when subjects were really close (0.5-1m). Build quality seems the same as the high quality 35mm lens, and looks really sleek and discreet on the camera. The lens hood is unusual but clever, as it adds less forward bulk, avoiding that 'I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER' look which you tend to get with regular 'petal' types. The manual focus ring is extremely narrow, which took some getting used to, but thankfully the grip is very effective so it's hard to slip enough that you can't correct yourself quickly. Manual focus is also a lot more sensitive than the 35mm counterpart by Sony, so again it takes some getting used to, but I think after a while it actually allows you to track targets coming toward/going away a little easier which can be very helpful. Pictures so far have been really hitting above what I was expecting for the money. Sharp at 2.8 and very sharp by 3.Read more ›
Thus Sony launched this the SEL20f28.
At only 13/16 inches (20.4mm) 2mm shorter than the SEL16F28.
It weighs in at 2.4 oz (69g), the housed in a quality metal exterior with a silk black finish.
Its packing three aspherical lens elements correcting distortions.
Image quality in corners has been dramatically improved compared to the 16mm f/2.8 lens, as it only has one aspherical lens surface.
The 20F28 is clear and bright enough for those indoor family photo's.
With a 20mm focal length (35mm equivalent 30mm) and a bright maximum aperture of f/2.8.
The lens hood is not like any other Ive used, this has a rectangular slot in it, but can be left on the lens as protection.
Another handy feature of the hood is that it will go over a slim filter on the lens or a filter can be on the hood, or both!
"I have a Hoya UV, polarizing filter on the hood" as its can be removed with the hood to fit the adapter.
Many people have also asked on on the net if the wide angle adapter (VCL-ECU1) fits this lens
and yes it dose and nicely to. OK you don't achieve the as wide angle as you would if you fit the adapter to the 16F28
but then again the barrel distortion inst as bad or pronounced ether.
I bough this from Amazon to,
See VCL-ECU1 [Sony Ultra Wide Converter for NEX SEL16F28 Lens ]
I haven't tried the lens with the fish eye adapter (fish eye inst my thing!) But i cannot see any reason why it wouldn't fit ether.
With the wide converter on gives you
SEL20F28 x VCL-ECU1
20mm x 0.75mm = 15mm (or 22.5mm equivalent on a 35mm).
This is plenty wide enough for scenery for me.
I own the SEL16f28, which I purchased with my first NEX camera, the 5n.I thought that lens was very limited in terms of quality, hence purchasing the SEL20.
I now have the NEX 7 and this lens was tested on it
I must say that it's completely different from the previous, sub standard 16 version. The photos are sharp throughout, and I never have to correct chromatic aberration or distortions like I did with the previous model.
Autofocus is fast and accurate, even in low lit situations. I tried this both at home and outside, and the results were quite good. Pretty versatile when it comes to video too, as I think that after the SEL35f18 (at triple the price), this is probably one of the best for video. The distance on this lens makes video seem more "real" than the others, as they would be too narrow. With this lens you have a more "open" type of perspective, especially if you couple it with the wide angle adapter from Sony too (VCL-ECU1). I can confirm this works for photos and there is no heavy vignetting in the corners, but there is some, which is easily corrected in post. For video it also works fine, and there is a very slight fish eye effect to it, nothing crazy. I actually quite like it.
Photos are vivid, well contrasted and look quite natural. I tend to do more street photography than anything else, and I'm quite happy with the results. From buildings to people, to alleyways and running photos in train stations... results have been good and i'm keeping this lens! I can't see any alliasing or heavy artifacts as of yet, but then again if you go nitpicking there will be something wrong with every lens...Read more ›
