The F2.8 aperture offers a high-quality bokeh blurred background effect that is ideal for portraits, while the lens’1:1 macro capability allows sharp close-up shots of subjects. A comprehensive range of controls including focus-mode switch, focus-range limiter and focus-hold button simplify use for a wide range of shots.
The lens offers a 6.3 inch minimum focusing distance and a wider field of view for capturing more background, compared to longer focal-length macro lenses.
The lens weighs 8.4 oz., for convenient portability, and is also dust and moisture resistant.
The new FE 50mm F2.8 Macro lens features an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to effectively compensate for axial chromatic aberration at close focus.
Sony said the optical and mechanical construction of the lens has less glare and ghosting, even without a lens hood.
