Enjoy the flexibility the Sony SAL-50F14 lens offers. Great for candid shots, this lens delivers stunning clarity even when the aperture is fully open. An ultra-bright standard lens for fast, accurate shooting by available light.
For quick candid shots that capture "the decisive moment," this lens provides superb clarity and visual accuracy even with fully open aperture when working indoors or in low-light and twilight conditions.
Mounted on the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides midrange telephoto 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), and takes advantage of the in-camera Super SteadyShot image stabilization system to minimize blur from shaky hands.
Superb Sharpness in Available Light: In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens achieve pinpoint sharpness even working with hand-held camera by available light.
Bright f1.4 Aperture: The ability to capture more light in dark environments gives you a superb lens for hand-held shooting without flash, to preserve the mood or in locations whereflash is not permitted.
Circular Aperture: Conventional lenses close their apertures with blades that can create multi-sided shapes, but the aperture blades of this superb wide-angle lens form a near circle at the wide openings you'll use for low-light shots, so spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this lens--at a fraction of the cost--as sharp as those carrying the Carl Zeiss label.

This is a super lens with awesome light gathering and great Bokeh from the round (as opposed to hex) aperture. This lens extends capabilities way beyond the usual 3.5 or 2.8 of other lenses. The Seller packaged the lens well, shipped the lens promptly, and it arrived right away in excellent condition.
This lens is very easy to blurry the background. Most times no need to use the flush light when take pictures inside.
Use it with Sony alpha 100, 550 and 55. Outstanding resolution. Smal and light. f1.4 with only 55mm filter size. Use it mostly at indoors sport events with ISO 800 and 1/500s shutter speed. Great portrait lens with APS size sensor and macro with extension tubes.
I used this lens to take my grand daughter's pictures. It blurry the background. Make the portray looks good.
I don't have any negative feedback to offer on this lens. As close to negative as I can get is there's no SSM focusing, but that would cost more anyway so it seems to be a fair trade off. For the price it's an excellent piece of equipment that is necessary for anyone wanting to take their photography to the next level. f1.4... I love you! It's wonderful to be able to hand hold action shots all the way till dusk without cranking the ISO up. A must have for low light shooting.
This lens is great for walk around and low light. Use your feet more instead of standing in one spot. It's light weight and a pleasure to use with my Sony a850 My copy of this lens is sharp at all f/stops. I love it. Buy it if you can.
the fast lens is great for shooting children who are rarely still. The bright lens reduces the need for flash in many instances. The fixed lens takes a little getting used to after using zooms. The lens is very well made and I'm happy to add it to my collection of camera equipment.
The lens you need for those existing light photos.
When I take a picture for Portrait and Snap, I use this lens.
I use an 18-250mm, f3.5-6.3 zoom lens for most situations. For indoor sports, this 50mm f1.4 lens is a great addition.
