february-lenses-sony The 50mm F2.8 Macro (SAL50M28) is a 35mm format compatible lens that captures 1:1 life-size images with the high contrast and resolution that are hallmarks of a truly great macro lens. A double floating mechanism minimizes aberrations across the focusing range to assure beautiful imaging from infinity down to the minimum shooting distance of 20cm/7.9". With naturally smooth defocusing characteristics and compact, easy-handling versatility, it's a macro lens that's great for landscapes and snapshots, too.
The 50mm F2.8 Macro is designed for ease of use with either auto or manual focusing. The wide focus ring is easy to fine-tune manually, yet doesn't rotate and throw your grip off when you're using autofocus. A focus hold button and focus range limiter are also provided to help you use autofocus in difficult situations. Whether you're shooting subjects close up or far away, you get mobility and framing versatility that 100mmclass telephoto macro lenses just can't match.
