SEL50F18 - lowlight impression
Feb 24, 2012

Tried out the SEL50F1.8 OSS out under lowlight and must say that I am truly impressed.

The lens has no trouble focusing under lowlight, and the OSS makes you feel very assured that camera movement is controlled. It is a great video lens, if you have the distance, the FOV can make you feel up close indoors.

It is by far the easiest lens to use under lowlight conditions. This mainly because of OSS, but also the DMF focus assist which makes the screen zoom in by merely touching the focus ring.

The Nex-5N camera does tend to bump ISO to 3200 and Aperture to f/2.8, so I had to use A mode and set ISO to 1600 manually.
