f/1.8 but not always sharp.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens because of the wide apature. Trouble is, close up shots aren't very sharp... only a small part of the photo if you're lucky. I read about this, so I knew what I was getting. I just have to shoot a smaller apature and raise the ISO. My camera is the Sony a6000.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Fantastic lens for portraits

  • Excerpt: I am a photo enthusiast that recently purchased Sony's practical and affordable a6000. This fantastic lens produces sharp images. My only critique so far is that the AF hunts. A lot. I've only used the kit lens, which never hunted.
  • Pros: Sharp
  • Cons: Slow AF

Not bad. Not special.

  • Summary: Lens was nicely built for price. The optics didn't pop as I thought they might give the speed. Not many 1.8 options for e-mount anywhere near this price. Good for bargain hunters. Not for me. Peace.

Incredible lens, great value

  • Summary: This is one of the best lenses I've ever owned. I use it on my Sony NEX-5N to achieve absurdly beautiful photos... more beautiful than I should be able to achieve as a non-professional It obviates any need to spend money on portrait photography of my son. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.

My new go to lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to attend a family members wedding. I was really surprised by the quality, clarity and vibrance of the shots. I have other multi use lenses for my Nex5, but the E50lens will be my go to from now on. Using the camera zoom to the max their was no detectable distortion and I now prefer this to the E3.5-5.6.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Smooth operation

Absolutamente perfecto!

  • Excerpt: Prefiero comenzar aclarando que soy un aficionado de la fotografía, leo y practico por mi cuenta, veo muchos vídeos en Internet y nunca pensé que necesitaría un lente primo o "prime lens" Luego de mucho leer me decidí a comprar el 50mm F1.8 primo para mi Nex-5T (Planeo poner comentarios pronto de ella también) Es la mejor decisión que he tomado! Se ha convertido en mi mejor arma! Es excepcional para retratos, paisajes, para todo! El bokeh es mágico, el enfoque perfecto.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Ninguno, None
