Sony 50mm F/1.8 Features

  • SteadyShot INSIDE In-Camera Image Stabilization: A major reason for its compact, lightweight lens design is the benefit of SteadyShot INSIDE in-camera image stabilization, enabling lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms
  • DT Lens Design: A more compact, lightweight lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in some Sony a (alpha) DSLR cameras
  • Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM): The built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) eliminates the need to use a mechanical coupling system in the camera body to transfer auto focus (AF) drive power and control signals to the lens
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass: To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors
  • Circular Aperture: Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect
