Sony FE 50mm f/2.5 G Lens
Normal-Length Portable Prime
A classic focal length with an especially compact profile, the Sony FE 50mm f/2.5 G is an inherently versatile prime lens capable of handling subjects ranging from portraiture to street to landscapes. This G Series lens is characterized by a notably stylish build and sophisticated optics, making it a go-to single-lens choice for everyday walk-around shooting.
Matched Set of Compact Primes
Together with the FE 24mm f/2.8 and 40mm f/2.5 G lenses, these three lenses form a cohesive trio with similar styling, image quality, and ergonomics:
  • All lenses prioritize a compact profile with an emphasis on intuitive handling; each features a manual aperture ring along with other tactile controls.
  • The three lenses share the same 49mm filter ring diameter.
  • Matched aluminum finish with stylish focal length and aperture engravings, both aperture and focusing rings, and matching metal lens hoods.
G Lens Series
  • Two aspherical elements promote more uniform sharpness across the frame by suppressing spherical aberrations and distortions.
  • One extra-low dispersion glass element controls color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color fidelity.
  • Rounded 7-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Focus Control for Stills and Video
  • Two linear motors deliver quick and accurate autofocus performance, along with capable subject tracking for working with fast-moving subjects. This AF system is also especially quiet to suit its use for cine applications.
  • Internal focusing design limits the overall length of the lens for faster, more responsive focusing.
  • Linear Response manual focus control offers more natural handling and an AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Customizable focus hold buttons are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Impressive close-up performance for working with close-up subjects; this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 12.2" with MF (13.8" with AF), which results in a 0.21x maximum magnification.
Sleek-but-Robust Design
  • Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
  • Lens measures 1.8" and weighs 6.2 oz, making it a great portable choice that's well-suited to both full-frame and APS-C bodies.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions.
  • Fluorine-coated front element is easy to clean and resists dust, moisture, and fingerprints.
Chiaro Pro 49mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 49mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels 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. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

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 allow 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
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 and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
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.

Sensei OC-CK Optics Care and Cleaning Kit

Keep your optical surfaces clean with the Sensei OC-CK Optics Care and Cleaning Kit. This kit contains a pack of lens tissues, a lens cleaning pen, bulb air blower, paint brush, lipstick brush, lens cleaning fluid, microfiber cleaning cloth, and see-through mesh travel case to put everything in. This kit can be used to clean a variety of different optics and glass. You can use the air bulb blower and any of the three supplied brushes to initially remove dust from the surface.

Then, gently rub in small circular motions to remove stubborn smudges or fingerprints from the glass. For those more stubborn blemishes or smudges, the lens pen is very effective.
