Sony Announces a New Pancake for NEX: 20mm f2.8

Remember that 16mm f2.8 pancake lens that Sony had a while back when the NEX system was still super young? Yeah, it’s been gone for some time and the company is announcing their new 20mm f2.8 pancake for the system. The new lens will become a 30mm f2.8 on any NEX camera and should prove to be quite popular for the format. But that’s not all, the company is re-announcing their 18-200mm power zoom lens that can now be purchased as a standalone product.

The new E 20mm F2.8 will be available this April for about $350 while the E PZ18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS (SELP18200) motorized telezoom lens will be available this March for about $1200.

All the tech specs you care about are after the jump.
