Get incredibly close to small subjects with the Sony SAL-50M28 macro lens. It allows you to easily capture the most subtle details with spectacular clarity. A compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity.

"Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles.

Mounted on the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens.

You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders, and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too. In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in low light.

Excellent optical precision gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject. Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus, Close-up Range, or Telephoto Range.

For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing. In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- which improves handling ease. 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.

I use this for floral photography in the field. It's so "right on". It's fast enough to catch a clear shot of a flower on a windy day..
