Portrait Prime for APS-C
Enjoy a near perfect portrait-length perspective on your APS-C E-mount camera with this black E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens from Sony. The bright design pairs with a 75mm equivalent focal length for a flattering perspective and quick focusing and image stabilization also help to achieve sharp imagery.
Optical Design
  • Flattering 75mm-equivalent focal length helps to isolate subject matter and home in on minute details.
  • Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture facilitates working in low light conditions and allows shooters to create images with an extremely shallow depth of field.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Image Stabilization and Autofocus
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • An internal focus mechanism contributes to faster, more responsive autofocus, the minimum focus distance of 1.3', and easier handling as the lens does not change in length during use.

i dont understand the term Focal Length 50mm (35mm Equivalent Focal Length: 75mm)
Asked by: Vses
This lens is a cropped sensor lens, therefore there is a magnification factor associated with this lens relating to a full frame sensor (35mm).

Is there any way to adapt this lens to Panasonic ...

Is there any way to adapt this lens to Panasonic Lumix G5??
Asked by: larry
Not that I am aware of. Adapting native SLR lenses to Mirrorless cameras takes advantage of the larger mount flange to sensor distances required to accommodate the SLR mirror. In essence they reposition the lens to the same distance from the sensor as on the SLR. This lens is a Sony E mount which is already mirrorless (with a short mount to sensor distance) and so there is no room to fit an adapter unless it also has a corrective lens to allow it to focus on the sensor, which can be done (see the Matabones focal reducers, which effectively 'open' up the aperture) but I'm not aware of any such adapter that is made to fit mirrorless to mirrorless.

What is the best F Stop range when wanting to photograph a 3 to 6 piece band in low light live music situations (I assume glass is not stellar on 100% of lens)?
Asked by: Duane
If you want to have them all in focus , you might want to shoot at around f-8 , if you want to focus lets say in the singer and blur the other members of the band then I found it best to be around f-2.5 depending on the distance to the subject

question

What the different of FE 50mm 1.8 which cost cheap than this? which one better for A6000?
Asked by: Vall V.
The main difference would be the camera mount. The sony E mount and sony FE mount. It looks like the a6000 is an amount camera so unless you have an E to FE adapter you would have to go with the sony E 50mm.
