Since today is International Pancake Day, I guess I should talk about pancakes. No, not the pancake that you eat. I’m talking about Pancake Lens. (OK, that is a pretty lame joke)
Anyway, Sony recently announced the E 20mm F2.8 pancake wide angle lens, a new interchangeable lens for E-mount cameras. This bring the total number of E-mount lens to thirteen, inclusive of two teleconverter lenses.
Measuring just 20mm from lens front to back, the E 20mm F2.8 pancake wide angle lens is an ultra-slim yet tough. With its wide angle of view and bright F2.8 aperture, the lens is great for everyday shooting. Being small and light makes it great for street photography. And I also like to say, easier to hide from your wife or girlfriend.
Unfortunately, you can’t get the new E 20mm F2.8 interchangeable lens for International Pancake Day. It will be available in Asia Pacific from March 2013.
