Have you ever tried self portraits either with the Tamron 17-28 (between 17 and 20mm) or the Sony 20mm? If you did, can you comment on the results? Tks.

I mean handheld!

We sometimes do family selfies (wife and daughter) with 28mm, camera on 17cm minitripod in my hand. Results are kind of OK, but tight. 20mm would be great and probably no need wider. Without tripod, heavy camera is hard to hold and operate for selfies.

Yes, I have tried with the 28mm and it’s really tight for me and my wife. What about distortion using the Sony 20mm f/1.8 or the Tamron 17-28mm? I have the Sony GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip.

Distortion will vary more based on focal length than the lens. 20mm will have more than 24.
