New NEX 50mm f/1.8 lens tests

Share


From all new NEX lenses this is probably the lens that has the highest probability to become a hotseller. The new Sony 50mm f/1.8! According to Sonystore (Click here) the lens will be available in mid December. The lens is relatively cheap but the specs are tempting and image quality now proves to be very good. Just look at the latest review posted by ThePictureDesk (Click here): “I shot a fair number of images with the Sony Zeiss 24mm on the NEX7 but it was a bit wide. Once I switched to the Sony E-mount 50mm f1.8 I realized what a great little lens this is. All the press and buzz has been around the Zeiss 24mm. There have been a couple discussions about the 55-210 and a few about the new 50mm. I think the 50mm is one lens most NEX photographers would appreciate.“. You can also see some image samples posted at DC.watch (Click here).

This is definitely a lens to go! Preorders are available at (Click on shop name to check price and availability). To bad it’s not available in black color too. Would look amazing on my current Sony NEX-5n and future Sony NEX-7!
