Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens (Black)
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.
Chiaro 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission
Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Polished Optical Glass
Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Would this lens be a 50mm on my Sony a7iii and a7ii?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use this lens on the A7iii and it will be a 50mm lens BUT you will be using half the sensor and in turn getting half the resolution. It doesn't make sense to use a cropped sensor lens with a full frame camera. You can get the Sony 50mm lens for full frame. You can view it on our website by clicking the link below;

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.

If it work on alpha??
Asked by: Andy F.
Sony calls everything alpha - so your question does not make sense. Did you mean to say: Does it work on A-mount? or maybe your question is: Does is work on full frame EF-mount such as can be found on A7, A7R etc.? - this lens is E-mount and will not work on A-mount cameras. It will work on the full frame EF-mount cameras in crop mode only, i.e. you get coverage of an APS-C sized sensor - this means that you will get roughly 15 Mpix picture on the 40+Mpix full frame sensor of the A7R II.
