Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens

Featuring a 75mm equivalent focal length on APS-C cameras, the E 50mm f/1.8 OSS offers a unique portrait perspective between more conventional 50mm and 85mm lenses. An f/1.8 aperture handles most lighting conditions, while Optical SteadyShot image stabilization reduces shake when shooting video, or at slow shutter speeds. An internal focus mechanism maintains quick and quiet autofocusing and its compact form makes for easy carry.

Applications: This lens offers a unique 75mm equivalent focal length on APS-C cameras, which is especially useful for portraits and other subjects benefiting from a short tele field of view.
