At first glance the Sony SAL-50F18 50mm f/1.8 DT Autofocus Lens looks like a standard prime lens, but being a DT lens designed to cover Sony APS-C sized chips, it should correctly be perceived as a short telephoto lens. Its cost, design, and overall size all lead the tyro to comfortably accessorize their kit lens, and begin developing a library of optics for their camera.
Note! Not compatible with 35mm or "full-frame" digital SLR cameras
- This bright 50mm lens (75mm equivalent in full/frame 35mm format) is a short-telephoto focal length suitable for portraiture, low-light and candid imagemaking.
- Focusing down to an impressive minimum focusing distance of only 13.4" (34cm) is aided by the inclusion of Sony's Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) smoothly driving the lens system.
