Sony 20mm f2.8 lens
Sony 20mm f2.8 lens : The Sony 20mm f2.8 Wide-Angle lens is a wide-angle lens with uncommon accuracy and extraordinary depth of field. The Sony 20mm f2.8 wide lens delivers a super-wide 94° angle of view, corrects visual aberrations from about 10 inches to infinity, and provides deep depth of field for complex shots that maintain sharp focus in both close foreground and far background. Mounted on the Sony Alpha 100 digital SLR camera, this beautiful wide-angle lens achieves a 70° angle of view with 30mm focal length (35mm equivalent).

Sony Alpha 100 - dSLR Photography|
The Sony Alpha 100 camera is an instant classic: the top-quality 10 Megapixel DSLR system camera that builds on a two-decade legacy of Minolta photographic leadership, accepts 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide, and introduces Sony imaging innovations like high-sensitivity shooting with Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically increase detail in bright and dark picture areas, new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start Auto focus system for faster camera response.
Sony 20mm f2.8 wide angle lens - Aberration and Focus
Advanced correcting techniques for optical distortion create visually accurate shots with minimum aberration, so foreground and background are both represented as actually seen. With sophisticated optical coating to prevent internal reflection, this wide-angle lens achieves superb clarity and definition. The Sony 20mm wide lens has the ability to keep both close foreground and distant background in critically sharp focus.
Sony 20mm f2.8 wide lens - Aperture
Lens elements at the rear of the lens move to increase auto-focus speed and help you catch quick action. Conventional lenses close their apertures with blades that can create multi-sided shapes, but the aperture blades of this superb wide-angle lens form a near circle at the wide openings you’ll use for low-light shots, so spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. Pre-orders for the Sony f2.8 20mm wide angle lens will begin on September 8th, 2006.
