Sony SAL50F18 50mm f/1.8 Standard Lens

Product information

When it comes to shooting intimate portraits, or just capturing everyday snaps, a 50mm lens is essential. The Sony SAL50F18 balances usability and performance into one ruggedly constructed package.

Key benefits:

  • The bright, wide aperture lens with 50mm fixed focal length is ideal for portraits and general photography.
  • An f/1.8 maximum aperture allows creation of smooth background defocus effects (bokeh) - ideal for emphasising your portrait subject.
  • Advanced optical design achieves clear, high-quality images with minimal distortion and chromatic aberration.
  • The smooth autofocus motor means that autofocus is quiet and accurate.
