I was disappointed with this lens. The sharpness, clarity and contrast are nowhere near as good as the Sony 16-35mm zoom lens. The only reason to buy a prime lens is to get better image quality than you can from a zoom.
I purchased this lens for my a99 body for the purpose of capturing indoor photography of subjects (head to toe). I found my 50mm f1.4 and a CZ 85mm f1.4 lenses are both great in low light, but I find myself really constrained when trying to distance myself from my subject (especially in a 10x10...

F2.8 not adequate for indoor shoots, AF
I bought a Sony A850 body and needed some lenses and this (20mm F2.8 Sony) was the first one. I have had the Nikon and Canon counterparts. This is the best of the three for sure. They all seem to have some things in common.
I have a Minolta badged version of this lens and have used it extensively for landscape photography, time-lapse and also night photography. It takes filters, has a good hood...it just feels like a 'proper' old school lens - really like it. A robust lens.

not as wide angle as expected. returned for that reason.
Plan to use this during decent into magma chamber in Iceland
great lens. i use it for northern lights photography and it works really well for capturing landscape.
The Sony 20 mm F/2.8 makes a very good and relatively low cost super-wide angle lens. For most people, it's wide enough and fast enough. I would definitely recommend this lens.
This lens is identically the same as the which is a great lens. They are useable at f2.8, sharper at f4, and being wonderful at f5.6-f11. For sharper image with this lens, you may use the "front focus trick" If you have full frame A-mount camera, this lens is a must lens.
Went I buy a prime lens (and I like them very much and have dozens of it), you expect to exchange the flexibility of a zoom for the sharpness and lack on aberrations of this type of lens. This is not the case of this lens.
