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'm still amateur and have yet to put this lens to a full capability test, but I'm quite impressed already. To get a good lens doing 1.4 for this price is just amazing. I have no complaints.
I go out of my way to use this lens. The 1.4 aperture is a lot of fun and gets great shots with beautiful bokeh. I've shot a couple weddings and this lens is indispensable in low light settings. I haven't really had any problems with focus or aberration. I'll switch to this lens from my zoom and run around to compensate because the quality of pictures I get is so superior in color, sharpness, and versatility compared to my other lenses.
The pictures look amazing in most cases.
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.
Out of the box, this lens was amazingly sharp with very accurate auto-focus. After about two months & 300 shots, the calibration on the auto-focus started to degrade. It now focuses about three inches further away at f/5.6 at eight feet than what you are actually focusing on. It's not the camera (an A33), which is still quite accurate with all my other Sony lenses. I sent it to Sony, but they were evidently unable to recalibrate it, as the performance was unimproved when they returned it to me. The good news is that it's still incredibly sharp when focusing manually...
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.
It just came to my house today. It took one day to ship! Even though they said 5-7. I alms ordered expedited too. I don't know why I didn't order these lens earlier when it was on sale! It's so perfect. I just got it and I'm 100% loving it an satisfied. Sure it's a bit costly, but in my opinion, well worth the money.
