Small, Light, Bright: a Great Normal Prime

Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens

The Sony FE 50mm f/1.8, a simple, bright, and lightweight normal prime is a versatile normal-length prime lens created for full-frame mirrorless E-mount cameras. Its sleek design makes it ideal for day in and day out shooting, while the fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is an advantage when working in low-light environments as well as offering enhanced control over depth of field for selective focus shots. The optical design includes a single aspherical element to control spherical aberrations, and uses a double-gauss configuration as a way to realize sharper, clearer image quality all through the aperture range with diminished field curvature. A DC actuator is also used to provide quick and decisive autofocus performance that is also quiet enough to handle video recording. In addition, a rounded seven-blade diaphragm is featured to create out-of-focus highlights with a smooth, circular look. Symbolized by its straight-forward design, this go-to lens evens out both ease of handling along with expanded image quality.

  • Normal-length 50mm prime lens created for mirrorless full-frame Sony E-mount cameras, although, can also be used with APS-C cameras where it will deliver a 75mm equivalent focal length in 35mm terms.
  • Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture is an advantage when working in trying lighting situations and also provides greater control over focus placement for shooting with shallow depth of field styles.
