Lens Review
Introduction | Sony E 20mm f/2.8 lens performance | Sony E 20mm f/2.8 vs. Nikon Coolpix A lens: lightweight, wide-angle primes battle it out | Conclusion


Attached to the 24-megapixel NEX-7 the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 scores an overall DxOMark Score of 17. A sharpness score of 10 P-Mpix is disappointingly low for lens tested on 24-megapixel sensor like the Sony NEX-7 and slight barrel distortion is noticeable. On the positive side the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 doesn’t suffer any noticeable chromatic aberration even in the corners with the aperture open at f/2.8.
