The Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS is a more than welcome addition to the (rather slim) Sony NEX lens lineup. Technically it is not without flaws. It delivers a very sharp center performance but the corners/borders are soft at large apertures. However, considering the typical applications (e.g.

Straight to the point, this lens works great for portraits and close range landscape shots. The focusing works great and when im using my sony a6000 in manual mode, Im able to zoom in and get the exact point i want in focus rather easily.

I'm new to this type of lens, but it is awesome for outdoor shots, specifically when taking "targeted" shots. It is easy to adjust the BOCA for professional looking photos. The lens works great in all light conditions.

    Manual Focus Not The Best

24 November 2013

You can't beat this prime lens - creamy bokeh and sharp subjects, its the all-around can't-miss lens you've been looking for. Lightning quick autofocus, tank-like bulid... this lens absolutely has it all.

    Slightly more expensive than Canon and Nikon's offerings with the same specs...

One of the best lenses available for the E mount system. It's sharp, fast and shoots great. Anyone looking for a good portrait lens or a slightly longer lens should definitely pick this up. It is a must have for any crop sensor E mount. This lens is also the best value available in the line up.

Very fast focus during indoor/low light settings (esp. compared to 18-55mm kit lens.) F/1.8 allows quicker shutter speeds, decreasing motion blur during live events, such as concerts. It is slightly heavier than 18-55mm kit lens, but worth carrying for specific shoots.

    Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

4 April 2013

I read reviews explaining this was a great lens, but I was now prepared for how great. I've had it for 4 months, and it is a dream to work with. The images look great even wide open, and I love the bokeh effect.
