Sony FE 50mm F2.8 Macro


A very underrated lens in our opinion.

In a compact package you get true 1:1 macro, which is super for product, food, nature and fine art photography.

But you also get a high resolving lens at infinity, meaning your landscapes, architecture and everyday snapshots will be super sharp.

Highly recommended standard lens.

  • 1:1 macro – meaning you can get closer to your subject, filling up the image frame with a life size representation, and still acquire focus. Trying to get this close without this 1:1 ratio will only result in completely out of focus shots, as other non-macro lenses can’t focus that close.
  • The 50mm normal is very useful for close-ups of products (such as jewelery photography), food photography, nature and slow docile insects.
  • This wouldn’t be the best recommendation for fast moving and shy bugs. The Sony 90mm f/2.8 is better suited, as you can get the same magnification but by standing further away 😉
  • The Sony FE 50mm macro is also very good at capturing sharp images that are far, as a beautiful landscape. It is therefore, very popular with hiking and travelling photographers that want a lightweight but high quality normal lens.
  • Handy switches and custom button on the lens – saves you from having to dive into camera menus.
  • The only downside is that focussing from near to far is a bit slower than a non-macro standard lens.
