Sony FE 20mm f/2.8 lens to be announced soon

The Tokyo-based company already has the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 for its mirrorless system cameras. This will be the FE (full-frame E mount) version of the current lens.

This means you will be able to use this lens with Sony full-frame E-mount cameras like the A7 and A9, or with APS-C sensor cameras, such as the A6500. Cameras with crop factor gets an effective 30mm equivalent focal length.
