Product description
Announced Jun 5, 2006

Manufacturer description: A compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles. Mounted on the Sony ? DSLR-A100 camera, the SAL-50M28 macro lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens.
