About the Sony SEL50F18 50mm f/1.8

A lens for all seasons

There's a reason 50mm lenses have sold well for large sensor cameras: this versatile focal length is equally strong for portraits, general photography and videos. When you've got one with an aperture this wide, you increase its utility tenfold. An f/1.8 aperture means fantastic shots in low light, and the "mild telephoto" focal length means portraits that will stand out against a buttery background blur.

A lens for all seasons

There's a reason 50mm lenses have sold well for large sensor cameras: this versatile focal length is equally strong for portraits, general photography and videos. When you've got one with an aperture this wide, you increase its utility tenfold. An f/1.8 aperture means fantastic shots in low light, and the "mild telephoto" focal length means portraits that will stand out against a buttery background blur.

Sony's outfitted this lens with smooth-running, near-silent motors: a linear motor controls the focus drive, and a stepping motor is the power behind the responsive aperture-control system. You'll appreciate the quiet operation the first time you use this lens to capture video with sound.

Product Research

Features

Optics: The Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS lens is compatible with the Sony α NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. The large F1.8 aperture lets you take clear, high-quality images with very little distortion or chromatic aberration. It has 9 elements in 8 groups, and a 7-blade circular aperture.

Note: Using this lens on a full-frame camera may result in vignetting -- causing the corners of the image to become darker than the center.

Optical SteadyShot (OSS): The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps you achieve blur-free still images and videos. Optical SteadyShot gives you a 4-stop shutter speed advantage.

Direct Manual Focus (DMF): Direct Manual Focus lets you manually adjust the focus, even when in autofocus mode. After the camera autofocuses on the subject, you can turn the focus ring to focus on a specific point.
