Does well as a walkabout lens.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens as a walkabout lens for foul weather conditions. So far I have not experienced bad weather. My other lenses are Zeiss and I do not choose to risk glass of that price under such conditions. My testing indicates the lens will do fine for its purpose.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Lens Shade Is Limited

It's a really good lens, for the price

  • Summary: This is my walk-around lens for my A6000. It's a really good lens, for the price. If you use Lightroom, which has a lens profile for it, you can easily fix photos taken with it (barrel, etc). Definitely my favorite Sony lens to date.

Great crisp lens

  • Summary: Great crisp lens. And tiny and really light. I think 20mm is a good size for taking shots that capture people in a place enough of just the people.

Sony E 20mm f/2.8 SEL20F28 review by Elgsdyr

Elgsdyr, slrgear.com
18 July 2015
  • Summary: - Sharpness is very good in the center (most of the frame actually) wide open, while slightly soft in the extreme corners (only). Stopped down the center becomes great while the extreme corners get quite decent. If you want perfect corner-to-corner sharpness you should look elsewhere, though.
  • Pros: Portability/compactness, good sharpness, decent bokeh,
  • Cons: Nothing really except, perhaps, that it isn't spectacular in any area (other than compactness)

Sony E 20mm f/2.8 SEL20F28 review by jamesdike

  • Summary: Sharpness on picture's borders and on corners much better than its Sigma's sister. Sony's lens doesn't beat Sigma in the center. Generally this Sony lens provides at least not bad optical quality, especially in terms of sharpness, contrast and coloration.
  • Pros: sharp even in corners
  • Cons: chromatic aberration

Over Easy

WallyW, B&H Photo
15 May 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to make a slim package with my NEX-7 to allow me to carry a camera at all times. So many pictures pass without a camera available. This lens corrects my bad habit. On the other hand, to be kind, this lens is not sterling by any means.
  • Pros: Clever Compact Lens Hood, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Focus, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Not very sharp

About that lens hood/cover

Oregonian stuck in Indiana, B&H Photo
13 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Quick note: bought USED here for its compact size and usefulness as a city/landscape walkabout option that would have minimal battery drain (no zooming in and out). I don't normally buy used, but this was rated as a 9 (it was!
  • Pros: Conveniently Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not A Sharp Zeiss Touit
