FE 50mm F2.8 Full-frame E-mount Macro Lens
Full-frame 50mm macro lens and wide F2.8 max. apertureThis high-performance 50mm macro prime lens is the ideal focal length for most photographers from close-up macro shots to landscapes and portraits. The bright F2.8 maximum aperture delivers excellent low-light performance and control over depth of field for beautiful defocussed backgrounds.
7-blade circular aperture design produce beautiful bokehWhen changing your aperture to defocus the background, the background light sources appear blurred. While conventional aperture blades have flat sides creating unappealing polygonal shaped defocussed points of light, this 'bokeh' effect of the blurred background can be enhanced with circular aperture blades used in this lens.
ED glass elementExtra-low dispersion (ED) glass dramatically reduces axial chromatic aberration and provides superior contrast across the entire image, even at large aperture settings and close focusing distances.
Aspherical lens designField curvature is carefully corrected by aspherical lens design which dramatically reduces spherical aberration while also reducing lens size and weight. Specially shaped "aspherical" elements near the diaphragm restore alignment of light rays at the image plane, maintaining high sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture and can also be used at other points in the optical path to reduce distortion.
Focus-range limiterThis function allows you to set a limit on the focusing range which can save you time during autofocus (AF) operation as the lens will not 'hunt' through the entire focusing range. The focus range can be set to; Full (lens will use the full range to find focus), infinity to 0.3m (far) and 0.3m to 0.16m (near).
Focus hold buttonOnce you've adjusted focus to where you want it, pressing this button on the lens barrel will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance which is also convenient for holding focus while recomposing. The preview function can also be assigned to this button through the camera's custom settings.
