Great portrait lens, impressive depth of focus and clarity for this price point

Dean "KoolMoeDean", Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: This is, comparatively, a pretty cheap lens; I paid less than $250 for it brand new, but it performs admirably and has high-quality construction. The outside is plastic, but not fisher-pricey, cheap plastic like some other brands, it feels solid and high-end, and has metal elements as well throughout. It is primarily a portrait lens, with a wide range of aperture settings, which allows you to control depth of focus, giving the photos a professional look to them.

WOW

  • Summary: I've always wanted to get my hands on a 50mm F1.8. Being an Olympus guy, I couldn't really afford to get a reasonable prime. It was hard to justify the cost of the lens being twice the cost of the camera when compareable systems sold similar lenses for much more reasonable amounts. Moved to Sony and picked up this lens (used) for almost half the cost of the Olympus equivelent. Though, using an a3000, photos look amazing so far. Bokeh is excellent.

great lens

  • Summary: I really love this lens. Great image quality, image stabilization, relatively light, and a decent focal length for portraiture on APS-C cameras. . If you are using the NEX Kit-lenses, you may like the fact that it has the same diameter, so you can use your filters.

Great Lens

Larry W. Riddle, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this lens to use with my NEX 7 to take pictures at Middle & HS basketball games where the lighting is sometimes less than optimal. 50mm/f1.8 is ideal. the light gathering of the large aperture makes all the difference. This allows me to use a lower OSO and reduce noise.The game action is fast so focusing can be a challenge especially with bursts. But when in focus the pictures are very sharp.

Review from a novice mom taking pics of her kids

T. Turzi, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This takes gorgeous pictures with nicely blurred backgrounds. I would recommend this for moms looking to get professional looking pics of their kids. Keep in mind, that it has a very short focal length, so you are very limited in what you can photograph. I couldn't get a group shot of 5 kids sitting on a couch without the edges being blurred. It really is only for portraits of one or two people.

Excellent Lens for NEX

MTB Dude "MTB Dude", Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this lens after reading a bunch of excellent reviews. I was between this and the 35mm f1.8 but decided upon this lens due to its longer focal length. I tend to take more portraits rather than landscapes thus this lens was perfect for me in this regard. Though, truth be told, over the past few weeks I have gotten excellent results with just about any type of photography including some nice landscapes.
