Product description
Announced Aug 24, 2011

The Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS is a short telephoto prime lens for Sony's NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras. Its effective focal length of 75mm makes this an ideal lens for portraiture, and a fast maximum aperture of F1.8 is great for low-light or shallow depth-of-field photography. Optical performance is excellent, and Sony's OSS optical image stabilization is very useful for general photography, to keep things nice and shake-free. Watch out for one thing though - like other silver E-series lenses, the exterior of this high-performance prime attracts scuffs and scratches extremely easily.
