  • Conclusion: In this summary it would be better if we compared the Sony 2.8/50 with a Canon EF-S 2.8/60 Macro or a Sigma 2.8/50 Macro. Unfortunately neither of these instruments have been tested yet so out of necessity the tested device is being compared to the Sigma 2.8/70 Macro and the Tamron 2.8/90 Macro. Maximum MTF50 values, reached by these instruments, were about 42-43 lpmm so basically as high as the Sony’s.
  • Cons: a bit too high vignetting by f/2.8,, chromatic aberration at the maximum relative aperture could have been lower.

Sony 50mm f/2.8 macro ( SAL-50M28 ) - Review / Test Report

31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sony 50mm f/2.8 macro is certainly a very good lens but it does not really stand out from the crowd - macro lenses simply tend to be top performers. The resolution potential of the lens is very high straight from f/2.8. The vignetting is usually not field-relevant and the level of distortions is negligible. The quality of the bokeh is very decent. Technically lateral CAs may be a tad too high at large aperture settings but it's not really something to worry about.

  • Conclusion: Sony 50/2.8 Macro jest lekkim i poręcznym obiektywem, który łatwo zabrać na wycieczkę. Daje możliwość wykonania zdjęć, których przy użyciu innych obiektywów, nie moglibyśmy zrobić. Ostrość zdjęć uzyskiwanych przy jego pomocy jest bardzo dobra. Nawet osoby stawiające wysokie wymagania optyce powinny być zadowolone z uzyskiwanych efektów. Bardzo dobra praca układu pod światło oraz znikoma dystorsja to cechy warte zauważenia. Martwić może duża winieta przy f/2.8.

  • Summary: A focal length of 75 mm may be (converted to full-frame) a less widely used fixed focal length, but this lens deserves to be in a camera bag of any quality-conscious photographer (with a camera with an APS-C sensor). For a macro lens is the apparent extension of the focal length also only beneficial, because you less likely disturb your subject because of that.
  • Pros: high optical quality: resolution, distortion, chromatic aberration, and insensitivity to flare are all perfectly fine
  • Cons: vignetting at full aperture
