  • Normal Prime Lens
  • Compact, Lightweight
  • 7-blade Circular Aperture
  • Filter Diameter: 49mm
  • Impressive optical performance for Sony cameras, precision engineered for versatility and reliability in a wide range of applications.
  • F1.8 maximum aperture for low-light shots
  • 7-blade circular aperture for beautiful defocus effects
  • 75 mm (35 mm equivalent) focal length with APS-C sensor
  • High image quality from an innovative optical design that includes a precision aspherical element
  • Smooth defocusing:
  • The F1.8 maximum aperture opens up a world of beautiful prime-lens bokeh. The large F1.8 maximum aperture is also an advantage when shooting night scenes or in dimly lit interiors. When used with an Alpha series camera body that features in-body image stabilization, even greater low-light capability enables handheld capture of clear images in dark scenes without having to use excessively high ISO sensitivity.
  • 7-blade circular aperture:
  • The 7-blade circular aperture maximizes the beauty of large-aperture prime-lens, contributing to impressive images in which the subject stands out against a smoothly defocused background bokeh.
  • Refined optical performance:
  • The lens has an innovative optical design to achieve clear, high-quality images by effectively minimizing distortion and chromatic aberration. A double-gauss configuration effectively suppresses field curvature and distortion, while a precisely placed aspherical element controls spherical aberration and coma for excellent optical characteristics right out to the image periphery. An aspherical element in a new optical design controls all types of aberration (spherical, coma, distortion), rendering the subject with superior sharpness.
  • Solid Durability:
  • Designed for reliability in a wide range of environments, the metal mount adds a sophisticated feel as well as solid durability.
  • Fast, agile focusing:
  • Fast and accurate autofocus is achieved with a newly developed DC motor focus actuator system which drives all lens groups for optimum focus precision and speed as well as quiet operation.
  • Compatibility:
  • E-mount Full Frame cameras
  • E-mount APS-C cameras

Is this made for the Full Frame Sonys or for the APSC sensors?

Asked by: Mike
Hi Mike, This is the full frame Sony lens

Why would I buy this versus the 85 mm prime?

Asked by: DragonFly Travels
Hi DragonFly Travels, Thanks for the question! The difference between the two lenses would come down to a matter of personal preference and what the intention is for the lens. The 50mm would offer a wider field of view than the 85mm, making it easier to work with in smaller spaces, or if you simply want to capture more of the background behind your subject while photographing outdoors. The 85mm will give you a narrower field of view and compress the background more, creating a "flat" appearance.
