Something I always wanted in my kit, was an autofocus pancake lens. So, a few weeks ago, I finally decided to get the Sony 20mm f2.8 from Mack camera. I always like to keep a small, inexpensive wide angle lens in my kit for photo wandering and this was almost the smallest. I use the Sony 20mm mainly with my Sony A6300 but I can use it on my A7 and A7III in crop mode as well.

When I say the Sony E 20mm f2.8 is small, I mean, when the lens is on the a6300 I can basically put it in my jacket pocket. The lightweight of the lens makes it a joy to carry, especially while walking miles in the city.

Working with the lens is a joy. In the time I’ve owned the Sony E 20mm 2.8, it’s, become my daily lens. It’s sharp and renders colors nicely. Instead of using the accompanying lens hood, I use a circular polarizer with the lens at all times.

This lens is great for landscapes and just wandering around with a camera. The limits of the Sony 20mm f 2.8 use is up to the photographer. Working with the lens is an interesting experience. People do not notice it. It almost helps you maintain a level of invisibility.

One of my favorite things about this lens is I can use it while drinking coffee. The minimum focus distance of 7.9″ allows for a lot of flexibility

A fantastic lens for everyday photography 

On my original lens goals list, I had the Sony 16mm f 2.8. After some doing some research and considering my past camera work the Sony 20mm f2.8 was the right choice. Here are some more samples from my early days with the Sony 20mm 2.8 Ill be using this lens a lot. It may become my favorite.
