The Sony 50mm F/2.8 Macro FE-Mount is a normal-length macro prime lens. It is compatible with Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and can also be used with APS-C models to deliver a 75mm equivalent focal length. It combines macro-focussing capability and superior optical precision with a weather resistant lens design that offers great performance.
Standard Focal Length with Macro Focusing
This Lens features a standard focal length that has the versatility needed for great results in a broad variety of situations. The macro focussing capability of the lens allows it to focus as close as 16cm from your subject, letting you capture the tiny details of objects or nature in beautiful 1:1 magnification.
The Sony 50mm Macro Lens features a fast F/2.8 aperture that allows you to shoot in dim light without an external flash or overly high ISO settings. The wide aperture and 7-blade rounded diaphragm smoothly blurs the background to complement portraits and emphasise the subject.
Superior Optical Design
The optical design of the lens features 8 elements in 7 groups including 1 aspherical element that minimises both spherical and chromatic aberrations, resulting in images with improved clarity and sharpness.
Advanced Focusing Controls
The lens is equipped with a focus range limiter switch that allows you to select focusing range between 16-30cm, 30cm-infinity, or full. Limiting the focus range makes the auto focusing operation faster, ensuring that you don’t miss out on capturing an important moment. The focus hold button can be gently depressed by your thumb to lock the focus in place. This handy feature allows you to recompose the photograph without letting it slip out of focus.
The Sony 50mm Macro lens has a weather-sealed, moisture and dust-resistant construction to improve durability, ensuring consistent performance.
Macro and More
