  • Buying Guide: Camera Lens

    Camera lenses play a pivotal role in image capture to the extent that an average camera with a good lens will take better photos than a high-end camera with a mediocre lens.

sony e-mount fe 50mm f18 prime lens is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. Older tech focus motor is a bit noisy and a tad sluggish compared to some of Sony's speedier lenses, but it is not that bad in either regard. But... Sharp on center. Great bokeh. Thin DOF. Great colors. Exactly what I expect from a nifty fifty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly sharp lens. I purchased this lens a couple of weeks ago and the results from it are brilliant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I wish I could say it's alright for the price, but I can't even say that because every single lens they produce is way over market value and this is no exception. Focus speed is abysmal, incredibly noisy motor. Image quality is whatever... nothing to write home about. Bottom line I'd rather adapt a 50mm ef that cost me less than half the price of this one... much better image quality and focuses faster, even adapted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Portraits I had the 55mm 1.8 Zeiss Lens and for the price point of that lens I was able to get two other lens with one being the 50mm 1.8 FE by Sony. I really could not tell a difference between the two unless under microscopic examination and that was with aberration and even then I was hard pressed to tell a difference. Otherwise, I recommend the 50mm for the price point.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice quality but a bit beyond my expectation "Alright" product but the speed of focusing is slow and make quite loud noise.I'm not satisfied with its image quality. Acceptable prime lens with this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good standard lens A good lightweight general purpose lens at a reasonable price.
Date published: 2017-07-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unable to use phase detection autofocus on AF-S I am unable to use phase detection autofocus on AF-S on A7ii even when updated to FW 4.00 Body/FW 03 Lens. The lens focuses using contrast detection on AF-S. It can use phase detection autofocus on AF-C, but the microadjustments in focus burn through the battery very fast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Latest firmware update is awfull Hi! I have updated firmware for this lens to version 3 and faced with really slow autofocus. It's not usable anymore - it's slow and not accurate. Tested on my A7 body and NEX-6 cropped body. Is it possible to downgrade lens firmware update to ver.2 ? Any suggestions?
