Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens for the money I bought this as an introductory Prime lens and so far it performs as I expected, a nice, basic 50mm lens with good speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony 50mm F1.8 The lens is a bargain, and produces very sharp images, with the kind of de- focused backgrounds I want for portraiture...I could spend a lot more money for a lens with an incremental better quality image, but for my purposes I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Probably one of the best bang-for-your-buck lenses out there. Its an incredibly versatile prime lens that takes very sharp images with the nice bokeh that everyone is looking for these days. This lens should be the first lens you buy after advancing from the kit lens that came with your camera. You will not be disappointed with this lens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your time! Hello everyone, it is all my fault for buying cheep, this lens has a Red outline on the subjects, it gives a sheep look to the picture, this could work for some people if that is the look you are after. Best Wishes Milton

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good buy... BUT... I bought this lens because I really wanted a portrait lens with a wide aperture, and I was very excited to get it. But upon buying it, I've noticed that pictures I've taken where my subject is in direct sunlight or is backlit, are subjected to EXTREME color fringing. The lens is great, and the fringing is easily corrected in Lightroom, but it is just a big let down that my images are fringing so badly. The lens takes semi-sharp images, and is great for what it is, but that color fringing is just such a huge deterring factor for recommending it to anyone else. Overall, it's an awesome prime lens. It has the ability to produce really shallow depth of field and works great in low light conditions. On the flip side though, the images aren't as sharp as they should be and color fringing is far too noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible This lens is fantastic. The photos are sharp, and it's fast so you can easily capture those shots in lower light. A no brainer, this should be one of the first lenses you add to your collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get professional looking portraits "The photos from this lense are sharp and professional looking. I am a complete novice and have a Sony A55 slr which I love. I have been eyeing this lense for sometime and I am so happy to have it now. It produces sharp portraits with nice bokeh (blurred out background). Just to give you an idea, I was able to capture some beautiful photos of my 5 yr old by our Christmas tree with the lights sparkling but subdued and blurred in the back. No fancy flashes or settings. I know this isn't a very technical review, but if you are new to photography like me you will not regret purchasing this lense. I am fairly sure it is the most affordable lense that Sony offers. Very good value."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Need This! Zoom lenses have their use since they allow you to cover more range without changing your lens. However if you want to go that next step and have a more sharp and clear image then you need to buy this lens today!
