Versatile Shooting Experience
The Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens is a normal-length prime with close-focusing capabilities, offering impressive 1:1 maximum magnification, together with a 6.3" minimum focusing range, for making life-size images of close-up subjects. Helpful controls, such as a distance and magnification scale printed on the top, focus range limiter, and focus hold button, all an advantage for more precise focusing adjustments for a refined payoff. Complementing the handling abilities, the optical layout also includes both an aspherical along with an extra-low dispersion element, which work together to suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations for enhanced clarity all through the focus range. Additionally, the lens features a dust- and moisture-resistant layout to handle shooting in inclement weather conditions.
As a standard prime macro lens it is designed for use on full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, although it can be mounted on APS-C models where it provides a 75mm (35mm equivalent focal length).
True macro design delivers a life-size, 1:1 magnification ratio together with a 6.3" minimum focusing range for photographing close-up subjects. On the top of the lens is printed focusing distance and magnification scale to aid in more technical applications.
A single aspherical element and one single extra-low dispersion glass element are used the optical design to diminish both spherical and chromatic aberrations for enhanced clarity and sharpness.
A focus range limiter switch lets you bridle the useful focus range between 6.3-11.8", 11.8"-infinity, or full, while a focus hold button is also included to manually stop autofocus at a specified point.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm adds to a pleasant bokeh quality.
