Sony SEL50F18 E 50mm f/1.8 OIS Standard Lens
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.
