Sony 50mm f1.8 i'am happy...
Jan 2, 2013

Hi everyone, I picked up a Sony E-mount 50mm f1.8 a few day's ago, having read and viewed many posts here I add my two cents worth. If you have been thinking about getting one I recommend you do. I could not be happier with my early results, especially when shooting wide open.  On my Nex-5 the lens is wonderfully sharp. These samples were taken in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. Pretty much straight from the camera jpegs, a resize and light unsharpmask in photoshop.

The light inside was low and focusing was fast and accurate. And these were hand held, the OSS also worked well.

This from outside gives you an idea of the bokeh of the lens.

Two from my first night with the lens, I won't post any portraits, but say that you won't be disappointed with the results.

I won't be jumping back to the 18/55 anytime soon. One taken with "toy mode"

So if you don't mind zooming with your feet, the 50mm could be a great addition to your Nex.



Sony Alpha NEX-5
