Details

The Sony 50mm f1.8 SAM is a light, bright portrait lens offering superb optical performance at a price that’s irresistible to first-time DSLR users. With a wide F1.8 aperture, it’s ideal for capturing crisp, beautiful portraits in natural light with smoothly defocused backgrounds. AF performance is quiet and precise thanks to the inbuilt Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM).

Make your subject stand out

With its bright F1.8 maximum aperture, the SAL50F18 is ideal for framing and isolating your subject – even if it's competing with a busy background.

Say goodbye to blur

Pair the lens with a camera by Sony with SteadyShot INSIDE and you’ll enjoy smooth, blur-free results when shooting handheld, even zoomed-in.

Smooth defocusing

Instead of a standard polygon-shaped lens aperture, this lens features a 7-blade circular aperture for more natural, rounded defocusing or ‘bokeh’.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass

To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colours.

Refined optical performance

Multiple lens elements crafted from high performance optical glass help to minimise distortion and aberration, ensuring crisp, sharp images.

Smooth, silent autofocus

Built into the lens, the Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) is significantly smoother and quieter than conventional camera-coupled autofocus drive systems.
