Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Overview

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, which provides a 75mm equivalent focal length. It's fast f/1.8 maximum aperture and seven-blade circular diaphragm help create beautiful images by allowing users to use selective focus techniques with the shallow depth of field. On top of this, the lens is equipped with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for reducing the impact of camera shake. Also, it has an internal focus mechanism for fast, responsive AF and reaching a minimum focus distance of 1.3'.

Designed for APS-C format cameras, this 50mm lens will offer users a 75mm equivalent focal length, making it ideal for portraiture and other short telephoto applications.
The 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.
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.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

The Sony A7 is a E mount camera, so yes...it 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.

I am using SONY ILCE-QX1 will this lens sports my camera or please suggest Which lens should I purchase ??
Asked by: Bharat
This lens is certainly compatible with your camera and there are many other focal lengths you can use. It just depends on what type of subject matter you are shooting. If you are shooting landscape then a wide angle lens and for portraits the 50mm would be good. You can click on the link below to view your options; https://bhpho.to/31a7t4T

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.
