This is a better lens than the comparable one made by Minolta

  • Summary: The reason I bought the Sony SAL50M28 lens was to get clearer magnification of small objects indoors with the assistance of two photo lamps from a light box kit. This lens is just somewhat sharper than the comparative Minolta Maxxum 50mm F2.8 lens.

  • Summary: Wanted to break out into macro phototography and spent months researching lenses. This one by far was not the cheapest, nor was it the most expensive.

Obviously a high quality lens.

  • Summary: I have been a Minolta/Sony user for years. Over the years I have preferred fixed focal length lenses to zooms. This lens reinforces that preference. The full frame lens is constructed really well, from the built in hood to the metal lens mount. It has great weight and balance.

I love this lens

DOGLETMOM, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: I am no expert but I am taking a photography course and wanted a good quality and versatile macro lens for my Sony A35. This fits the bill. It is very sharp and I can also take more photos indoors without flash due to the wider aperture than my kit lens.

Still undecided

  • Excerpt: I purchased this as a compromise. Sony also makes 30 mm and 100 mm macro lenses. I chose the 50 mm because it was in the middle in terms of price and close-focusing distance. I have played with the lens for a week under less than optimum conditions.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not As Sharp As I Wanted
