20mm on FF is totally different. So, it 20mm on APS-C was your thing.... 20 x 1.6 = 32mm. You then would be better off looking at a 35mm lens instead?
Yes, completely correct.
And in that case, I'd suggest the RF 35 F/1.8 IS Macro STM, which is a great lens, designed for the R-series opf cameras, has IS, and STM motor for AF, does 1:2 - great for flowers and siliarly sized items -, and is apparewntly quite good. Another advantage si that it was made for the R-series of cameras, and is conveniently quite compact too.
In addition, it is on cashback too, and actually quite cheap compared to the competition, like the Kipon 35 F/2.4, which is MF, no IS, and only 30 euros less, and that is before cashback of the Canon.
