This 50mm E-mount prime lens is designed for Sony α7 full-frame cameras, but it is also compatible with APS-C NEX cameras, which will give you a focal length of approximately 75mm. This lens has a normal angle of view, making it a must-have for a range of photographic styles. The aperture creates incredible bokeh, and 11 rounded blades make it smooth and even across the focus range.
Twelve elements create this lens’s high-level optics, including an advanced aspherical element, an aspherical element, and an extra-low dispersion element, housed within nine groups. Together, they significantly reduce aspherical and chromatic aberrations and distortions, and when combined with Sony’s Carl Zeiss T anti-reflective coating, create incredible color and micro-contrast.
Autofocus is speedy and highly-accurate due to the Direct-Drive Super Sonic Wave Autofocus System. It’s also quiet, making it as useful for video as it is for still photography. A manual focus ring makes it easy to override autofocus whenever you want to fine-tune, and an aperture ring gives you easy control over your exposure settings, which is especially helpful during video.
Rugged all-metal construction and dust and weatherproofing make this lens a great companion in inclement conditions.
