Overview

Take your photography game to the next level. This Sony SEL50M28 FE 50mm macro lens lets you take razor-sharp, high-contrast images in low light and close up. Whether you're taking portraits of your extended family or capturing images from an open-top jeep on a wild safari, this manual-focus lens lets you exercise full creative control over every shot.

The total package

  • This FE 50mm (75mm on an APS-C sensor) fixed focal length macro lens gives you the ideal focal length for street photographs, portraits, and close-up photography.
  • An f/2.8 maximum aperture is perfect for low-light situations and offers a shallow depth of field, so you can take everything from landscape shots to stunning close-ups.
  • Precision focus
  • Full-time manual focusing with focus-mode switch, focus-range limiter, and focus-hold button means you'll enjoy total creative control over every shot and every image.
  • Razor-sharp close-ups are a cinch as well, thanks to a minimum focusing distance of 0.16m (6.25").
  • The 7-blade circular aperture lets you create a bokeh effect with round blurred defocused points of light, as opposed to the usual and less appealing polygonal shape.

Superior optics

  • The aspherical lens design reduces spherical aberrations delivering high sharpness and contrast for significantly improved image accuracy and quality. The design also reduces the overall number of elements needed so you get a more compact, lightweight prime lens.
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass helps compensate for axial chromatic aberration to provide superior contrast across an entire image -- even at large aperture settings and close focusing distances.

Ready for anything

  • This lens is both dust and moisture resistant, with sealing at all joints to ensure a robust design that's suitable for shooting in a range of outdoor environments.
  • It’s also small and lightweight, so it's easy to stash in your camera bag and take with you on every adventure -- whether you're going for a hike, to your kid's soccer game, or on an African safari.

  • Macro excellence
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Luke - June 7, 2021

    I bought this lens to complete my a6400 kit. I love macro photography and this lens is excellent for that purpose. Combined with the 70-350 lens my a6400 kit allows me to shoot subjects near and farther away with excellent results. The photos below are samples of the 70-350 lens and then the 50 mm macro lens.

  • Beauriful!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Dutch - April 3, 2017

    I got this lens to compliment my 90mm G lens. It's light and smal. It fits nicely on my a6500 and is able to get beautiful close up shots. The image quality is fantastic! A great starter macro lens for someone who wants a small sharp lens who might go to full frame someday.

  • Great Macro lens for the price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TRyan74 - July 25, 2019

    I love this lens I get some awesome shots with it. I use it with my Sony A7ii and they work so well. I’m a landscape/macro art photographer and this lens gets me my money shot every time. These are a couple of the photos I’ve taken with this lens.

  • Macro is cool
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Myxo - August 12, 2021

    This lens really helped me get into macro photography. It's not too expensive and delivers great photos. Obviously with any macro lens, the autofocus is very slow, but this lens is very loud as well. And at 50mm you have to get right up to your subject to shoot at 1:1. this website won't do the photos justice though.

  • Works as expected
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Urutoraman66 - December 31, 2016

    Really nice priced macro lens from Sony. Performance was similar to a macro lens I used to have with my Canon DSLR. Don't expect fast focus, but image quality compensates for that. I am using it with an A6300 which is a camera with APS-C sensor
