Sony FE 28mm F2 wide angle prime (SEL28F20)

Product summary

Key Features


An ideal lens to supplement any photographer’s basic kit, the new full-frame FE 28mm F2 wide angle prime features a bright F2.0 maximum aperture that’s ideal for landscape, low-light handheld shooting and much more. The light, compact design of the lens is an ideal match for Sony’s α7 series full-frame camera bodies, with a high-grade aluminum finish adding instant visual appeal.  The FE 28mm F2 has a 9-blade circular aperture, three aspherical lens elements – including one advanced aspherical element – and two ED glass elements that work together to ensure excellent edge-to-edge sharpness and excellent bokeh.  All lens surfaces are multi-coated to suppress flare and ghosting with backlit shots. The inner focus mechanism of this wide angle prime is driven by an advanced linear actuator, allowing for whisper-quiet AF.  Like the new FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS macro lens, overall lens length will remain constant during focusing.
