Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Overview

By B&H Photo's
A normal-length prime with close-focusing capabilities, the FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens from Sony offers a useful mixture of a high 1:1 maximum magnification along with a relatively broad field of view to suit photographing general subjects and achieving a greater depth of field. It's a versatile normal prime that does double duty as both a specialized macro optic and a flexible prime for portraiture or other distant subjects.
1:1 Macro and Focusing Control
  • True macro design affords a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio along with a 6.3" minimum focusing distance for working with close-up subjects.
  • Focusing distance and magnification scale is printed on the top of the lens to aid in more technical applications.
  • Focus range limiter switch allows you constrain the usable focus range between 6.3-11.8", 11.8"-infinity, or full, and a focus hold button is also featured to manually stop the autofocus at a specified point.
Optics and Physical Design
  • One extra-low dispersion element is featured in the lens design and helps to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.
  • One aspherical element is incorporated in the lens design to reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
  • Maximum f/2.8 aperture suits working in available lighting and also contributes to a compact, lightweight design measuring just 2.8" long and weighing about 8 oz.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.
