Why is Sony cutting out again those who want a little faster lens for indoor photography? Is it not obvious that there are many users who craved and are still waiting for f1.8-2 lenses at those FL (20-28mm)? Again and again Sony protects its 24mm f1.8 expensive AND big prime. Ok, I can understand 28mm f2.8 because at least we don't have this FL, but one more 20mm with SAME f2.8? Come on Sony, was it that hard to at least make it f2 or f2.4? Is it not known widely and most importantly by Sony engineers that every little bit helps in indoor or low-light photography? I'm sure most of us don't mind the 20mm to be a little wider (not longer in bulk) due to f2 or f2.2 or whatever you can offer to at least bring down that ISO when we neeeeed it. Damn it.
