Pair your Sony digital SLR with this high-quality 50mm f/1.4 lens to capture crisp, sparkling-clear images. Its large maximum aperture of f/1.4 gathers lots of light to give you an ultra-bright view through your viewfinder, plus it means you can use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects. This lens is also ideal for taking great-looking photos at twilight, or indoors without a flash — its 50mm focal length makes it an excellent choice for portraits and all-around picture taking.
The SAL-50F14's seven rounded aperture blades create a nearly perfect circular opening for admitting light. That allows you to softly defocus unnecessary background details to make your crisply focused subject pop from the photo. The supplied lens hood improves shooting in bright sunlight.
