Anyone using SEL20F28?
Apr 25, 2014

I currently have the Nex-5N with the SEL35F18 as my only lens. Recently I have felt the need for a wide angle option, especially when trying to capture landscape scenes while hiking and larger groups of people at parties. I know that the 20 mm (30 mm equivalent) SEL20F28 isn't all that wide by most standards, but it is substantially wider than the 35 mm (52.5 mm equivalent) SEL35, and the pancake form factor is very appealing.

I very seldom see discussions about and photos from the SEL20F28 on this forum. Is it because 1) no one even has it, or 2) those who do have it don't use it? Why? Overpriced? Not very useful FL? Not very bright? FL overlapping with kit lens range? Poor IQ?

Am I better off just getting the (much cheaper) SEL16F28 or the SEL1650PZ?

I would very much like to hear opinions for and against the SEL20F28. Image samples are of course always nice. Thanks!
