Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Prime Lens

A large-aperture 50 mm prime lens is a must-have for serious full-frame camera users, and the Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens is an excellent, affordable choice. The optical design is state-of-the-art for high image quality, and the large f/1.8 maximum aperture can produce gorgeous background bokeh. On APS-C format E-mount bodies it provides equally high quality with an equivalent focal length of about 75 mm.

Small, light, bright: A Great Normal Prime

A simple, bright, and lightweight normal prime, the Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 is a versatile normal-length prime lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. Its sleek design makes it well-suited for everyday shooting, while the fast f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions, as well as offers, increased control over depth of field for selective focus imagery. The optical design incorporates one aspherical element to control spherical aberrations, an employs a double-gauss configuration in order to realize sharper, clearer image quality throughout the aperture range with reduced field curvature. A DC actuator is also employed to provide quick and precise autofocus performance that is also quiet to suit video recording applications. Additionally, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm is featured to render out-of-focus highlights with a smooth, circular appearance. Characterised by its straight-forward design, this go-to lens balances both ease of handling along with enhanced image quality.

Upon buying it I did not expect that this lens would perform so well at this price point. It is super sharp and is great for portrait and general photography. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to buy a Sony lens for portrait or general photography without breaking the bank and paying the price for the G Master range.

My most used lens.

I love this lens. I used it a lot. Some people say it focuses too slowly. I have no issue tracking moving subjects. The pop you get from images is amazing. I highly recommend this lens to everyone.

So you have the best camera what now?

If you consider the price this is the best deal money can buy, this is a very fast sharp lens for a great price. Sure you can get other more expensive lenses but I find I take this one with me where ever I go.
