Sony E 20mm f/2.8 review: A ‘fast’ pancake prime lens for the Sony NEX system

The $348 Sony E 20mm f/2.8 is a wide-angle prime for the Sony NEX range of hybrid still cameras and Interchangeable Lens camcorders. Its equivalent 30mm wide-angle focal length is ideal for interiors, landscapes or street photography, and a f/2.8 aperture is great in low-light. Just 20.4mm deep and weighing 69g it’s compact for travelling light, but how will it perform?
