Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS

Available Today

The Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS is a mirrorless lens designed for use with Sony E-mount cameras / camcorders. Its lightweight, aluminium alloy build provides users with a short telephoto lens that can be carried with you without burden. Equivalent to 75mm on a full-frame camera, it works great as a portrait lens. In addition, its f1.8 aperture and built-in Optical SteadyShot make for a fantastic low-light shooting option. Its dual linear / stepping autofocus motor has been optimized for both still and video shooting, providing fast, silent focusing. It is compatible with Sony’s DMF (Direct Manual Focus) mode, allowing full-time manual focus.

Please Note: Does not offer full-frame sensor coverage.

This is an excellent, very capable 50mm lens. The horrid native mount lenses have kept the NEX cameras on the back burner for me until lately, but this lens is one of the first steps in changing that. It’s ‘tuned’ to be extremely even corner-to-corner, meaning it may not be quite as sharp in the center as the Zeiss 24mm (when stopped down) or the Sigma 30mm (although it’s still very good). But it’s nearly as sharp in the corners as in the center, which can be critically important for edge detail in architectural photos, etc. It’s good wide open and very, very good by f/2.8.
