A Must-Have Lens for Portraits, Snapshots and More

The Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 lens is a must for any serious photographer’s kit. The fixed 50mm focal length offers a natural field of view that’s ideal for endless subjects, from portraits and food to street and travel snapshots. Together with Sony mirrorless cameras, the Sony 50mm f1.8 lens provides a highly manageable system that’ll keep you light and agile. Compact yet durable, it’s easy to handle and can be easily stowed in your bag, ready to capture any photo opportunity. 

Fast, Bright and Capable of Stunning Bokeh

With a fast f1.8 maximum aperture, this Sony 50mm lens is excellent in low light conditions, capturing crisp, clean images even indoors or at night. It’s also great for freezing action with fast shutter speeds – and when combined with in-camera image stabilisation, the fast aperture makes it possible to shoot sharp shots handheld without increasing your ISO setting. A 7-blade circular aperture renders background blur stunningly soft, dramatically emphasising the depth and in-focus areas of each image.

Lifelike Image Quality

Whether you’re shooting outdoor portraits at golden hour or product images in the studio, you can be confident that the Sony 50mm f1.8 lens will reproduce your subject as you see it. Its state-of-the-art optical design consists of an aspherical element that minimises aberration and distortion, delivering superb image quality from the centre to the very edge of each frame. As a result, you’ll capture details, textures and tonal gradations with lifelike accuracy.

Focus with Speed and Accuracy 

The Sony 50mm f1.8 lens comes equipped with a sophisticated new DC motor drive system that makes both auto and manual focusing as fast and accurate as possible. This system also makes focusing quiet, making it easier to photograph candid moments or hushed events without undue noise.

Small, light, bright: a great normal prime

A large-aperture 50mm prime lens is a must-have for serious full-frame camera users, and this is an excellent, affordable choice. The optical design is state-of-the-art for high image quality, and the large F1.8 maximum aperture can produce gorgeous background bokeh. On APS-C format E-mount bodies it provides equally high quality with an equivalent focal length of about 75mm.
