Re: Good 50mm Lens For Sony Nex ... on a Budget?

I have to agree that the SEL50F18 is worth the money. It is hands down my favorite lens. I have/had numerous 40-58mm fast manual focus primes, and in the year that I've had it I haven't used any of them more than a couple times, and each time I ended up switching back to the SEL50.

I honestly don't think you will find anything that will match the sharpness and bokeh of the SEL50 for the price, the autofocus (which is plenty fast) and OSS are just icing on the cake. As for the price, you should be able to easily find one for $250 used, $225 if you're patient. If you're worried about getting ripped off you can always pay a little more for a used one from Amazon Warehouse Deals knowing that you'll be able to return it if you have any problems.
