Sony FE 50mm f/2.5 G Lens

Sony’s ultra-compact option with an ever-popular focal length, the FE 50mm f/2.5 G packs G Lens quality optics into a tiny form factor. Measuring only 2.7 x 1.8" and weighing 6.1oz, this low-profile, lightweight lens is a great option whether capturing stealthy street scenes or spontaneous portraits. Extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements are incorporated into the lens to minimize distortion and keep images sharp and accurate. Two XD linear motors power quick and precise AF while an AF/MF switch on the lens barrel makes fine-tuning focus a breeze. A de-clickable aperture ring and customizable focus hold button are also included and, rounding out its appeal as an everyday prime is dust and moisture sealing to protect the lens when working under less than ideal conditions.
