Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Overview

By B&H Photo's
Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens (Silver)
Portrait Prime for APS-C
Enjoy a near perfect portrait-length perspective on your APS-C E-mount camera with this silver 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 Pro 49mm 98-UVAT UV Filter

The Pro 49mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. Resistance coating improves the scratch resistance of the glass, and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. 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 that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.


98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent 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 offers 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.

This is the first lens I've ever bought and it's awesome! I learned from many articles and Youtube videos that the 50 mm f/1.8 mm lens is great for portrait photography with a little bit of background and it's perfect for me! I used this for my brother's graduation ceremony and I had so many amazing pictures by the end of the night. It's a fixed lens and so I'm the one who needs to move backwards and forwards depending on how close I want to get to my subjects. It's a little difficult indoors to get a far shot but it's much easier outdoors. I'll probably look into an 85 mm lens next, but for right now the 50 mm meets all of my needs.

This lens is fast, very sharp with great bokeh. It's my low-light lens. What more could you ask for in a 50mm lens?

My apologies, my review won't be technical in any way, shape or form but I purchased this lens as a Christmas present for my girlfriend who is a photographer. She loves it, she didn't have a lens like it and now she does. I typically hate reviews life this, so again I apologize, but judging from my online research and her happiness with it... it's a solid buy.

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 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.

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;

The Sony A7 is a E mount camera, so would fit.It's a full frame lens; can also be mounted on a Sony APS-C (crop sensor.) Just remember it would turn into a 36mm equivalent.
