The Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens is a compact, lightweight lens with an extremely popular, “normal” focal length and a very attractively wide aperture. Stopped-down somewhat, this lens produces very sharp images. Adding the “Cheapest Sony FE lens” title to the other features lands this lens near the top of Sony’s best seller list.
This lens is a great intro to the world of prime (single focal length) lenses and beginners (or those on a tight budget) may find this a great starter lens, one adequate for most general purpose needs.
Let’s find out if you should add this lens to your kit.
