Shenzhen Jueying Technology Co. , Ltd. introduced a new Viltrox AF 20mm F2.8 FE lens , which is positioned as a lightweight version of wide-angle prime optics for full-frame cameras. The price is quite affordable – $158.

The Viltrox AF 20 / 2.8 FE is an autofocus lens designed for full-frame cameras. The optical design consists of 10 elements in 8 groups, including special elements (2 ED, 2 aspherical, 1 high refractive index), providing “excellent optical performance.” With a minimum focusing distance of 19 cm, you can take close-up shots. The Silent STM Drive allows you to focus accurately, quietly and smoothly. The lens is very light – only 157 g. The body is all-metal made of aluminum alloy, the outer lens has a multi-layer water- and dirt-repellent nano-coating.

 

According to information that appeared earlier , this lens will also be released for Nikon X and Fuji X mounts.
