Best prime lens of 2020


Best prime lens of 2020

Ah, prime lenses. Historically lauded as being less expensive, less bulky and generally sharper than average zooms, there were more than a few primes released over the course of 2020 that will challenge some of those long-held assumptions.

We had our say already, in our annual DPReview Awards, but which lens was your favorite? This your chance to let us know. And if you think we missed something, please leave a comment. So get ready to zoom with your feet and cast your vote for the best prime lens of 2020.

Voting in three categories (cameras, prime and zoom lenses) runs through December 20th, and once the vote has closed we’ll run a fourth and final poll drawn from the winners of the first three to determine your choice for overall product of the year.


Voting is easy – you pick your favorite products by dragging and dropping. You can pick as many products as you like, and rank them in order of priority.

Please note that voting is currently only possible on our desktop site. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Poll Rules:

This poll is meant to be a bit of fun. It’s not sponsored, promoted or paid for in any way and DPReview doesn’t care how you vote. Our readers’ polls are run on the basis of trust. As such, we ask that you only vote once, from a single account.
