E 50 mm F1.8 OSS
E 50 mm F1.8 OSS (SEL50F18)
Perfect for portraiture and a range of other subjects, the F1.8 max aperture and optical image stabilisation provide impressive picture quality, even in low-light.
Coupled with α E-mount cameras from Sony, APS-C E-mount lenses deliver big camera performance.
Built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilisation within the lens ensures smooth, blur-free photos and videos when shooting handheld.
Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.
The lens has an innovative optical design to achieve clear, high-quality images by effectively minimising distortion and chromatic aberration.
An internal focusing mechanism means the lens barrel doesn't move, enabling a more compact design, faster autofocus response and reduced minimum focusing distances.
