Remarkably compact and lightweight design, just 86.5mm (3.4 in) long, with a maximum diameter of 74.4mm and weight of only 365g (12.9 oz). With a size that is easy to carry and a light weight that’s well-suited for handheld shooting for extended periods, the 20-40mm F2.8 will likely become your first choice for travel, street shooting, everyday carry, and spontaneous photo opportunities.
Fast And Precise Auto Focus
The excellent handling benefits inherent in the compact and lightweight design are especially useful when shooting video. The lens remains well-balanced when using a camera rig, cage, or gimbal stabilizer, so it’s an excellent choice for vlog shooting. One advantage of the 20mm ultra-wide focal length is that a broad expanse of the background can be incorporated when selfie shooting. What’s more, the AF drive system is equipped with the VXD linear motor focus mechanism.
Ultra-Wide To Standard In A Snap
The 20-40mm F2.8 covers the focal length range of 20-40mm, making it a fast-aperture standard zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras that offers true ultra wide-angle. When shooting landscapes, you can enjoy the wide-angle field-of-view and dynamic performance that only an ultra wide-angle lens delivers. Moving in the other direction, the full zoom range covers up to 40mm, also offering popular 28mm and 35mm lengths. So, it’s ideal for snaps and casual portraits, too.
Wide Macro Shooting
The excellent close-range shooting performance, which achieves an MOD of 0.17m (6.7 in) at the 20mm wide end with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8, produces rich and dynamic imagery that brings out the finest details of the subject and gives you another avenue of creativity.
