Quality for the Price

  • Summary: I purchased this lens for my a99 body for the purpose of capturing indoor photography of subjects (head to toe). I found my 50mm f1.4 and a CZ 85mm f1.4 lenses are both great in low light, but I find myself really constrained when trying to distance myself from my subject (especially in a 10x10 sized room). With this 20mm, I can stand approx. 3-4 feet and be able to capture the full subject in frame. The issue is with the amount of light indoor shooting provides.
  • Pros: Corner Detail, DOF
  • Cons: F2.8 not adequate for indoor shoots, AF

Excellent lens for low light photography.

  • Summary: I bought this lens used for a trip to France; I anticipated being in very old buildings with low light and no flash permitted. All of that turned out to be true and the lens performed very well. Notre Dame, for instance was dark with a great amount of detailed stone work, art work etc. I switched my camera (Sony A 350) to Aperture Priority and managed to get good pictures in spite of the lack of light.

I would definitely recommand this lens

  • Summary: The Sony 20 mm F/2.8 makes a very good and relatively low cost super-wide angle lens. For most people, it's wide enough and fast enough. I would definitely recommend this lens.
  • Pros: Very Good Value For a Super -wide Lens
  • Cons: None

Very light, fast , good focus lens

PhotoNur, Sony

  • Summary: This is a light weight, compact lens. If you are looking for wide angle, fast lens this is the lens for you. Photos come very sharp in low light condition using F/2.8. It is easy to carry around, good to take landscape photos as well as architecture. Comparing with Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 Zoom Lens, vignetting at the edges and distortion is almost none. The bokeh is really nice on the background of your main subject.
  • Pros: Light weight, fast lens, no vignetting
  • Cons: loud snap sound

Outstanding Wide Angle Prime

Tefoonez, WEX

  • Summary: This is a truly superb prime wide-angle lens, works flawlessly on a900 - full-frame wide lenses are hard to come by, but I would strongly suggest getting this. Super-sharp from f4 onwards, still delightful and fast at 2.8; great colours and depth.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Quick Focus, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction

Bon petit grand-angle

JML, france ou allemagne., Amazon

  • Summary: Cet objectif est dans la gamme Minolta depuis des années 80. C'est une réussite: f/2.8 très utilisable, net jusque dans les coins extrêmes à f/5.6. Vous aurez du mal à voir la différence avec le CZ16-35 à partir de f/5.6, sauf que le zoom est moins bons dans les coins extrêmes... Petit et léger. Ca compte aussi. Inconvénients: un peu de comma à pleine ouverture sur le A900. Difficile de faire autrement sans asphérique....

Schlecht

Resus P "Resus P", Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe mir für meine Alpha 35 mit der erstaunlich guten Kitscherbe 18-55 neulich das 85mm 2.8 als Portraitlinse gekauft. Das hat mich so begeistert daß ich mir gleich noch eine Festbrennweite für den (gemässigten) Weitwinkelbereich zulegen wollte. Dieses Objektiv mit f 2.8 und 30mm am Crop schien mir erst einmal eine gute Wahl. Bereits die ersten Testphotos waren aber eine große Enttäuschung.

Die erste Wahl in der Preisklasse

  • Summary: Ich stand lange vor der Wahl, welches Weitwinkel Objektiv das beste für meine Sony Alpha sei. Irgendwann kam ich zu dem Schluss, dass es nie ein bestes geben würde. Ich setzte mir ein Preislimit von dem ungefähren Kaufpreis der Kamera ohne Objektiv und schloss somit eine nähere Auswahl. Da ich diesmal ein 'original' Sony-Objektiv haben wollte, kamen drei Objektive in die nähere Auswahl: Das SAL-35F18, 28F28 sowie das 20F28.
