Product description
Announced May 18, 2009

The Sony DT 50mm F1.8 SAM is an inexpensive prime lens designed for Sony's APS-C format SLT cameras. Offering an effective focal length of 75mm, this fast prime is ideal for portraiture, and for the price, its optical quality is extremely impressive. This cheap lens punches well above its weight, and although build quality is fairly budget and its SAM focus motor a little noisy, we recommend it highly.
