My first macro

James C. Gagne "Yody", Amazon
17 April 2014
  • 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. Knowing exactly what I wanted out of my photography I knew I needed a quality lens for my sony a65 but I wasnt ready (or able actually) to spend 2g on one of the mega lenses. Besides, what if I started it but didnt love it like I thought I would. So I got this finally and it is perfect for me.

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. The focusing motor is smooth and quiet. The F2.8 aperture provides an opportunity for some nice low light shooting as well as a pleasing bokeh when taking portraits.

I love this lens

DOGLETMOM, Amazon

  • 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. It is my go to lens for anything where a focal length of around 50mm will work and I am very pleased. I am looking forward to the spring and summer where I can take more true macro shots outdoors.

An oldie revamped

Blues_junkie, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This 50mm f2.8 Macro lens hasn't changed internally since the Minolta Rokkor days but it doesn't need to. It has been dragged into the new 'Sony age' by redesigning the looks and it sits well, visually, amongst the other Sony gear. What is indisputable is the easy of use, amazing sharpness and lack of stray light affecting the shots. This is a superb lens and value for money is exceptional.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharpness

Great as a macro and portrait lense!

David C. Massey, Amazon

  • Summary: Got this in one day but used 2nd day shipping! Now about the lens. I am extremely pleased with the sharpness and clarity in macro and portrait mode. In macro mode mounted on my Sony A65 I was able to zoom in on a ruler and found the maximum magnification represented about 23mm along the longest dimension of the image meaning that objects that are slightly less than one inch will fill the entire width of a landscape oriented photo on the Sony A65 camera.
