Product Details

Sony SAL-50M28 - 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black, Model SAL50M28

A compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality -- giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles. Mounted on the Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent) -- which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens.

Key Features:

  • 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens
  • Sharp macro focusing for close-up subjects
  • Bright f2.8 Aperture for low-light shots
  • High Contrast, high-Resolution image quality
  • Focus Range Limiter for faster auto-focusing
  • Focus HOLD Button for full creative control
  • Auto Clutch to stop Manual Focus ring rotation
  • Circular Aperture for pleasing defocused effects

Features:

  • Sharp Macro Focusing:
    You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders -- and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too.
  • Bright f2.8 Aperture:
    In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot® image stabilization system of the Sony® a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in low light.
  • High Contrast and Resolution:
    Excellent optical precision gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject.
  • Focus Range Limiter:
    Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus -- Close-up Range, or Telephoto Range.
  • Focus Hold Button:
    For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.
  • Auto Clutch:
    In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- which improves handling ease.
  • Circular Aperture:
    Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.

Great Macro

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

This lens is hard to beat for sharpness. I think the 100mm f2.8 macro has a slight edge on it due to the focusing distance on live insects. The 50 sometimes focuses too close and the insects fly away. This lens also doubles as a great portrait lens as well as being good for landscapes. On a APS-c sensor camera it works as a 75mm making it close to the 85mm 1.4 as a reasonably priced substitute. If your on a budget and looking for a Macro or a Portrait lens. You wont go wrong with this one. .

Very Sharp Macro & Portrait Lens

By

Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

This is the Macro to use for great flower and insect shots. It also doubles as a great portrait lens especially with an aps-c camera.

Great prime lens

By 

from Portsmouth, Virginia

Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

I have been a Minolta/Sony user for years. Over the years I have preferred fixed focal length lenses to zooms. This lens reinforces that preference. The lens is constructed really well, from the built in hood to the metal lens mount. It has great weight and balance. The focusing motor is smooth and quiet. The F2.8 aperture provides an opportunity for some nice low light shooting as well as a pleasing bokeh when taking portraits. However, the main reason I bought this lens was for its macro capability. I wanted the 1:1 ratio without using close up lenses. I wanted the ability to take macro shots without the use of a tripod. I have what I want with this lens.

Very sharp Macro

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Pros

  • Very sharp photos

Cons

  • Can be slow to focus
  • even with limiter

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

    This is overall a great lens. It produces very sharp images and is fast enough to do handheld shots at lower ratios than 1:4 magnification. For anything 1:1 through 1:4, I'd highly recommend a tripod as shutter speeds will quickly drop. The focus throw is very long, which means that it is slow to focus in some situations and tends to hunt a lot.

    Another useful lens from Sony

    By 

    from Mohnton, PA

    Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

    Some critics have called this a 'dated' design. What if it was simply done right the first time? Humor aside, I picked this up as a companion for the 100M28, and between the two of them, there are very few macro to normal situations they cannot handle quite competently. A long term keeper.

    What a quality lens

    By 

    from Manteca, CA

    Comments about Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens In Black:

    i've worked with many macro lenses and many cameras, and I have to say that this lens tops them all. As soon as you feel it in your hands you know its just quality. The pictures that it takes are so crisp and bright. It really adds a lot of character to your photos! From the reviews I've read online say that this lens is overpriced, but I completely disagree. For great picture quality, you're not going to get it for pennies. The price is right for this lens!
