The World’s Smallest and lightest1 for Unequalled Mobility and Handling
The E PZ 10-20mm F4 G is 20% lighter than its predecessor (SEL1018), making it the smallest and lightest lens in its class with a total weight of just 178 grams - even with power zoom. What’s more, the lens uses internal zoom and focus mechanisms, and therefore does not change in length when zooming or focusing. Outstanding G Lens imagery, impeccable autofocus (AF) performance, and versatile power zoom come together in a compact zoom lens that remains a constant length throughout the zoom range and offers refined visual expression and operability for movies as well as stills.
Introducing E PZ 10-20mm F4 G | Sony | Lens
Years of experience and extensive lens design know-how have come together in a remarkable ultra wide angle constant-F4 APS-C/Super 35 internal power zoom lens. E PZ 10-20mm F4 G not only delivers superb performance and handling, but is also the smallest and lightest lens in its class*. Outstanding G Lens imagery, impeccable AF performance, and versatile power zoom are now available in a compact zoom lens that offers refined visual expression and operability for movies as well as stills.

In addition to smooth, versatile power zoom, this remarkably compact lens minimises jarring angle of view shifts that can occur when focusing or zooming so that stable, high quality movie footage can be easily captured. Focus, zoom, and aperture operation are also extremely quiet, greatly reducing noise and vibration that can interfere with movie recording.
Outstanding Image Quality and Dynamic Perspectives that Only an Ultra Wide-Angle Zoom Can Provide
The E PZ 10-20mm F4 G provides an extremely wide angle of view with a 10-20mm zoom range and is designed to deliver a consistently excellent optical performance from the centre to the periphery of every image at all zoom settings. Three aspherical elements are ideally positioned to suppress field curvature and astigmatism, both of which are common problems in ultra-wide-angle lenses.
Refined Expression and Control for Movies
It features a new electronic power zoom system that ensures direct, responsive control and adjustable zoom speed. Users get a huge amount of control in a wide variety of shooting scenarios with a zoom lever. Power zoom minimises camera shake so that solo shooters can produce smooth, stable imagery. It always maintains balance and makes it a great choice for stable vlogging and gimbal-mounted movie shooting.
Advanced AF Performance Benefits Stills and Movies
With astonishing AF performance that gives still and movie shooters unprecedented freedom, it uses two linear motors for focus drive, delivering fast, quiet AF. Also, the focus mechanism is internal, so the length of the lens remains constant while focusing. Fast, reliable AF can smoothly track subjects when shooting high frame rate movies, and reliably follow fast-moving subjects when shooting stills continuously at high speed.
Mobility, Operability, and Reliability for any Situation
It is designed to maximise control and versatility for movies as well as stills with a focus ring, zoom ring and zoom lever. A customisable focus hold button and focus mode switch have been carefully incorporated to easily adapt in changing shooting conditions. Users can attach 62mm screw-on filters, such as variable ND filters, for more creative control and the lens has been designed to be dust and moisture resistant1 to provide extra reliability in outdoor use.
Excellent close-up performance
A circular aperture and carefully designed spherical aberration work together to deliver natural-looking G Lens bokeh that can contribute to impressive imagery. A Minimum autofocus distance is 0.2 meters with a maximum magnification of 0.14x, while minimum manual focus distance is 0.13 ~ 0.17-meters with a maximum magnification of 0.18x.
Stable image quality when shooting a movie
The optical path includes two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that effectively subdue chromatic aberration. An ED aspherical element further contributes to high resolution right out to the image edges. Also, as the lens’s maximum aperture is a constant F4 at all focal settings, it is possible to maintain stable image quality when shooting a movie and delivers manageable shutter speeds at dusk or indoors where light is limited.
