From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

E 50mm F1.8 OSS Prime Lens

This 50mm mid range telephoto lens offers a focal length that is perfect for portraiture and a range of other subjects, a bright F1.8 maximum aperture, Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilization and impressive image quality, all in a surprisingly compact and lightweight package. Add responsive, quiet autofocus and aperture operation, and you have a lens that is ideally suited to shooting movies as well as stills.

E 50mm F1.8 OSS Prime Lens

Technology

Circular Aperture
Lens-based optical image stabilization

Circular Aperture

When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the light sources appear blurred. This ‘bokeh’ effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens. Conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light. α lenses overcome this problem through a unique design that keeps the aperture almost perfectly circular from its wide-open setting to when it is closed by 2 stops. Smoother, more natural defocusing can be obtained as a result.

Lens-based optical image stabilization

Gyro sensors built into the lens detect even the slightest movement, and the stabilization lens is precisely shifted to counteract any image blur that might occur. The use of precision, quiet linear motors and technology inherited from high-end Sony professional camcorders results in exceptionally quiet, effective image stabilization that contributes to high-quality movies as well as stills.

Additional Features

Internal focusing

Only the middle groups of the optical system move to achieve focus, so the overall length of the lens does not change. Other important benefits include fast autofocusing and a short minimum focusing distance. Also, the filter thread at the front of the lens does not rotate, which is convenient if you’re using a polarizing filter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for portraits and close-up shots, good beginning prime lens
By david groves on November 19, 2016
Disclaimer: I'm an amateur photographer and purchased a Sony a6000 several months ago with the 16-55mm kit lens. I quickly graduated from the kit lens, however, and really wanted to unlock the power of my new camera. After debating between Sony's prime 35mm and 50mm, I settled with this bad boy first. I can't say this is my go-to lens that I leave on 90% of the time, but it definitely fills a specific niche depending on the situation.

Thanks to its relatively low f-stop of 1.8 compared to the kit lens, it's great for portraits. Even at around f/2.5 to f/2.8, you still get that creamy bokeh in the background with nice subject isolation. To justify its $300 price tag, however, I've used it for other situations. As a Yelper Elite, I'm constantly that camera dork who takes pictures of every restaurant entree I order before shoving it away voraciously into my mouth. With that said, it operates well when taking close up shots. Extreme shots of insects, flowers, etc. would be better justified with a macro lens, although you can consider a cheap alternative from Meike (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BXZ9ALQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to turn this 50mm into a quasi-macro lens. I've also used it occasionally for street photography, although its large focal length makes it cumbersome to use indoors. You can't really zoom out with your feet once your back hits the wall, ya know?

In these particular situations, I will use the 50mm hands-down. Is it the most versatile lens? No. That's why I also have Sony's 28mm f/2, which I find myself leaving on my camera most of the time. In hindsight I would have purchased my 28mm prime first, given its practicality. However, the 50mm acts as a great sidekick with the kit lens and should eventually find its way into your camera bag, regardless of when you purchase it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely AMAZING
By Payton on August 1, 2017
This is a must have lens for anyone with a Sony a6000. I'd say I'm an amateur photographer, but this lens can make anything look professional. The aperture is great, is great in low light, and overall is great at portraits and focusing on select items up close.
I'm absolutely in love with it, my friends love it, and it makes me feel better bout my abilities as a photographer.

Just a fair warning to anyone purchasing: This lens does not zoom in or out, and is rather close up, making you have to stand father back from your subjects to get a full frame. But it is not that much of a downside when the pictures come out so perfect.

Great Lens! Still trying to learn how to use it better. I'm new to photography so I've got a lot to learn, but this lens is amazing for portraits. Works well with my A6000.

By Paul Widdowson on April 7, 2016
IQ is amazing for the price, bokeh is pleasing and the image stabilization I can't praise enough. I'm currently looking at a 30x20 print shot hand held at 1/30 sec and it's tack sharp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have lens for Sony APSC.
By J. Horner on September 16, 2016
Absolutely love this lens, one of the sharpest I've ever used. Good build quality, good size. Crazy sharp. Stop reading reviews and buy this lens right now, you will not regret it. I took this picture of my daughter, she's smiling at one of our dogs, which when you zoom in you can see he's reflected in her eye. Like I said, crazy sharp lens, just buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buena relacion calidada precio
Reviewed in Spain on February 25, 2019
En general me parece un objetivo de una calidad notable y una relación calidad precio excelente.
He hecho una comparación con el Sigma 56mm 1.4 (ya que son las mejores alternativas "económicas" de objetivos de retratos para APS-C). Izquierda Sony 50mm y derecha el Sigma 56mm.

Pros:
- tiene OSS (imprescindible para los que quieran hacer vídeos y tienen la a6300 o inferior).
- bonito efecto bokeh
- realtivamente pequeño y muy ligero
- calidad bastante buena (especialmente en motivos lejanos, que es cuando iguala al Sigma 56).

Contras:
- no tiene una definición excelente como otras alternativas -eso sí, más caras-
- tiene un decepcionante y precoupante aberración cromática (se ve claramente en las imagenes 3 y 4).

Conclusiones. Si tienes una cámara APS-C y la darás uso de viídeo, es buena opción.
Si tienes cámara APS-C y solo le darás uso de fotografía de retratos merece la pena valorar el Sigma también.
Personalmente lo devuelvo porque las aberraciones cromáticas me parecen muy altas. Ese fucsia en los bordes me molesta demasiado.
