  Summary

   is the same as the 24mm of the same series I have used before, because the size and specifications are roughly the same, so I will From the moment it was connected to the camera body, it was as if you had been using it for a long time without any discomfort, and it worked very well. I was able to start shooting immediately. The shortest focal length among the three wide-angle fixed-focus lenses is the 20mm used this time. When I look through the viewfinder and see the width of the picture, this is the first time I realize that this is an ultra-wide-angle lens. This may be because of the compactness you feel from the appearance and weight of this lens.

   Although there is no fixed definition of “ultra wide angle” from the focal length of the lens, until about 20 years ago, even about 24mm was called “ultra wide angle”. But nowadays there are 12mm or 10mm lenses, so I think we should start with 20mm.

   Back to the topic, ultra-wide-angle fixed-focus lenses have been sold by various manufacturers so far, and almost all full-frame lenses give the impression of “big and heavy”. The Tamron series that has appeared now has both lightweight and compactness. Through the universal design of the lens body, the cost can be reduced. As a user, I am also very happy. This is a lens with a compact appearance and high picture quality that exceeds the price.

   This type of lens has never appeared before. Although it is incredible, for a full-frame mirrorless camera whose compact design is also one of the great advantages, this series of lenses is not very good. Your partner?
