This will be the compact version of the A-mount lens. It is expected to be in a slim and lightweight package. The company already has the Sony E 20mm f/2.8 for its E-mount camera system. This will be the FE (full-frame E mount) version of the current lens.

Sony FE 20mm f/2.8 lens was first rumored a year ago. However, it was delayed due to other priorities in the company’s lens range. Sony users 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.
