Sony SEL50F18 E 50mm f/1.8 OIS Standard Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

When it comes to shooting intimate portraits, or just capturing everyday snaps, a 50mm lens is essential. The Sony SEL50F18 balances usability and performance into one ruggedly constructed package. Integrated optical image stabilisation gives you smooth, reliable results in low light, even without a tripod.

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.
  • Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation creates crisp, stable handheld portraits. Silent focus also means this lens is less obtrusive when shooting videos.
  • A wide aperture and Optical SteadyShot make this lens highly suitable for atmospheric handheld portraits without a flash in dim light.
  • Advanced optical design achieves clear, high-quality images with minimal distortion and chromatic aberration.
  • Direct Manual Focus disengages AF motor for precise, fine manual focusing control.
  • Compatible with E-mount cameras.
