  • Pricey
    Verified BuyerReviewed by harriaga - June 2, 2021

    The lens is a little bit pricey just like every Sony item I guess; however, it is excellent but I have to admit that for some reason I have a hard time figuring out how to use it every time I tried to shot with it. It is a great addition to my lenses, small, and light.

  • Works Great on my Sony a7rii, Great Resolution!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by dmdk66 - May 15, 2021

    Just got the lens today so took a few images around the house. Had to downsize them for best buy. But the resolution on my 42mp camera seemed great. Fairly quick to focus. Video was fine. I've tried different lenses around the same mm. Have tried the Sony 50mm 1.8, 55 1.8, Canon 50mm 1.8 and 50mm 1.4 (adapted to Sony). There is no question that the 55mm is just slightly sharper (but not by much), and faster, but I use my 85mm 1.8 mostly for portraits. I find the 50mm 2.5 is quick, small and wonderful for a carry around lens. I will throw that in my bag along with the tamron 20mm and sony 85mm and be all set in a small package.

  • Best value for the money
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Juan - October 29, 2021

    This is a very convenient 50mm, very sharp and easy to use, and the best part is its size, it allows me to take it with me on my trips where I don’t want to bring a lot of equipment, the picture quality you get for the piece makes it worth to purchase.
