In a statement, Sony claims: ‘With the 35mm equivalent of its 30mm wideangle view and bright, f/2.8, aperture it’s perfect for a broad range of everyday shooting opportunities, from interiors to landscapes, street scenes and casual snaps.’

The 20mm lens (pictured) is built from six elements in six groups and features seven aperture blades.

Meanwhile, Sony’s new PZ18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS ‘power zoom’ boasts Optical SteadyShot and is designed to be ideal for capturing ‘smooth, stable video footage’.

The PZ18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS and 20mm f/2.8 lenses are due to land in February and March respectively, at prices yet to be announced.
