Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens ePHOTOzine Review: Excellent Performer!

Joshua Waller at ePHOTOzine published the Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens review saying that “The Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 macro lens is an excellent performer and a pleasure to use, at a realistic price“.

The 50mm lens is a universally useful optic and the ability to continue to focus right down to life size is very appealing indeed. The Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 macro lens is an excellent performer and a pleasure to use, at a realistic price.

Handling and Features: There is no doubt that handling is excellent. Focus locks on reliably, the image in the viewfinder or on the monitor is clear and it is a pleasure to enjoy again the simplicity of just having that one standard lens to shoot with. A wide variety of subjects can be attempted.

Performance: Sharpness at the centre is simply excellent at all apertures.

The Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens is compatible with Sony full frame and APS-C mirrorless cameras. And it seems to be the only macro lens for full frame E mount cameras in this focal length. But, in fact, up to now there are five 50mm FE lenses in the market, below are links to all current 50mm FE lenses:

Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens: $498 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens: $998 at AmazonB&HAdorama.
