Fast lens, good quality, slow focus

  • Summary: I am trying to find equivalent lenses for switching from my mid-range Canon EOS-D environment to Sony NEX. I am a happy user of the SEL-P1650 and SEL-55210. All these lenses (the SEL-50F18 being the third) are good optical quality for my taste.

Good value for money

  • Summary: I bought this lens primarily for portrait photography and some video work. It is mounted to a Sony a99 and has been used on my old a700 as well. Starting with build quality: The plastics used are of a good quality and matted to the metal alpha mount.

A must have for Sony Alpha photographers

  • Summary: It may seem a bit expensive compared with Canon and Nikon 50mm primes, but the quality is great, and at F1.4 it is actually a very useful low-light/available-light standard lens. Great choice for social photography, parties, weddings, e.t.c.

Excellent fast prime

  • Summary: I can't believe how much the price of these has come down. Mine was £300 used a couple of years ago, get one quickly before they go up again. First and foremost this is a very fast lens of course.

Good but not great

A. D. Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first bought this lens I was delighted: sharp, fast and a fantastically tight depth of field which makes for some creative photos. Since then I have bought the Carl Zeiss 135mm f1.8 which is fantastic and makes one a little picky.

Gran lente de distancia focal fija!

QUE DESPELOTE, MercadoLibre

  • Conclusion: En mi caso lo utilizo con sensor APS-C (alpha 330), donde se comporta como si su distancia focal fuese de 75mm, o sea que me resulta un excelente lente para retrato, donde, a apertura total, obtengo un agradable efecto de "suavizado" en la región periférica.
  • Pros: Ultra luminoso., Liviano., Silencioso., Respuesta rápida
  • Cons: No permite "diafragmar" manualmente, característica que resultaría útil al emplear anillos , o fuelle macro, que no posean continuidad eléctrica.
