  • Summary: It's not as sharp as I expected. I'm spoiled I guess. All of my lenses are ZEISS or Minolta/Sony G series. I have two lenses that are not ZEISS or G series. The Sony 16mm distorts the way I want. This is my least favorite lens due to quality, sharpness and vignette.

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...

not sharp.

  • Summary: Went I buy a prime lens (and I like them very much and have dozens of it), you expect to exchange the flexibility of a zoom for the sharpness and lack on aberrations of this type of lens. This is not the case of this lens.

The same quality as Minolta AF 20mm RS 2.8 lens

  • Summary: This lens is identically the same as the 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.

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.

Sony wide angle lens

tjflex2, Amazon

  • Summary: 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.

Ideal wide angle for full frame Alphas

pbphoto, Amazon

  • Summary: 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.

Very Good Value For a Super -wide Lens

Phil Sheridan, Amazon
2 November 2011
  • 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.
