Lifelike detail, texture, and gradation

An updated double-gauss optical configuration with an aspherical element minimises spherical aberration and coma for high image quality right out to the image periphery. The double-gauss design of the Sony SEL 50mm F1.8 FE also suppresses field curvature and distortion.

Dreamy large-aperture prime lens bokeh

A large F1.8 maximum aperture and 7-blade circular aperture on the Sony SEL 50mm F1.8 FE work together to create beautiful background bokeh that can make subjects stand out. Placing a sharply focused subject in front of a smoothly defocused background is an essential technique for producing deep, dimensional images.

Shoot at night or in dimly lit interiors

An F1.8 maximum aperture makes it easier to shoot clear night or indoor shots with the Sony SEL 50mm F1.8 FE. Combined with in-body image stabilisation you can even shoot handheld without boosting ISO. The large F1.8 maximum aperture is an advantage when shooting night scenes or in dimly lit interiors. When used with an α series camera body that features in-body image stabilisation even greater low-light capability enables handheld capture of clear images in dark scenes without having to use excessively high ISO sensitivity.
