Bright and unbeatably fast in combination with the alpha6000
great lens (tested together with the alpha 6000). The technology is immaculate. I particularly liked the depth of field in the near range, but landscape photography also works. In macro mode, almost too differentiated, so to speak.. if an object is half a centimeter out of focus, it sometimes becomes blurred. Attached some examples. The only criticism I found - but that's not worth deducting a star - was that there was no bag, not even a pouch, but a lens hood.

Most has already been written about it. Focusing is quiet and accurate. Steadyshot brings it. In normal use, the imaging performance is at best achieved with lenses that are 3 or 4 times as expensive with a tripod and remote release. I also tested the lens here as a macro lens. Attached are the pictures: the 1st a picture taken at the close-up limit, the 2nd with a 10 mm extension ring, the 3rd with 26 mm extension rings, and finally a honeysuckle blossom with 26 mm extension rings. All shots directly as from the camera with APS-C, from the hand, intentionally with autofocus and steady shot. All without the 2x digital zoom, which is of course available with almost no loss of quality. I don't know that this imaging performance can be achieved for the combination with another brand for less than 3000 EUR.

Top lens!
use the SEL50f1.8 on my NEX-5N. The workmanship is very good and the materials appear to be of high quality. My motivation for buying this lens was primarily the high light intensity and, according to all tests, the very good imaging performance. I was not disappointed in either respect. Even with an open aperture, the edge sharpness is much better than with the (stopped down) 18-55mm kit zoom. From approx. aperture 2.8, the 50mm lens then produces excellent images over the entire range! As with the kit zoom, the built-in optical stabilizer enables relatively long exposure times, even without a tripod. 1/10s to 1/20s are handheld with no problem, or even less if you have a steady hand. Up to now it has practically never been necessary to set the ISO higher than 3200, which makes the NEX a very good "available light" camera. The exposure potential is also very good at an aperture of 1.8 and the bokeh is very pleasant. The focus motor works relatively quickly and quietly, but the aperture blades may be audible when focusing because the aperture is opened. In my opinion, the autofocus is a tiny bit slower than with the kit zoom, but it is fast enough for my needs and, above all, very precise. Manual focus (steer by wire) is also possible and works very well due to the smoothly running focus ring. For videos, however, I find the "crank travel" when focusing manually to be a bit too long. Very precise adjustment is possible for this. If you are looking for a sharp, fast fixed focal length with autofocus, you will have a lot of fun with the SEL50f1.8. In my opinion, value for money is very good.

Very good lens
Autofocus is very fast and quiet, lens is crackling to the edge and cropping + bokeh at a very high level. Stabilization works very well and together with the large open aperture of f.1.8 it offers super low light performance.

Better than the Zeiss 85mm 1.4
In a nutshell, because a lot has already been described above. I compared the approximately 5 times as expensive (and heavy) Zeiss 85 f 1.4 on my SLT 99 with this mini lens on the Nex 6. Test scene: Roof front of the neighboring houses about 100m away, camera tilted by 45 degrees, so that the front goes from corner to corner. Workflow: Tripod, shutter release delay 2 seconds, stabilization switched off, aperture priority, ISO Auto, shots in RAW (internal corrections switched off), in Lightroom, default setting "developed", lossless downscaling of the 24MP image from the SLT 99 to 16MP in a TIFF file around the Comparison on the screen at 100% view for the 85 not to make it unfair. Shooting at f/1.4; 1.7; 2.4; 5.6;8 and 13 for the 85, 1.8; 2.5;5.6 ; 8 and 13 on the 50's Nex. Result in terms of sharpness: I didn't want to believe it, I repeated the test twice: There is a better lens than my 85, which was previously classified as superlative. Up to an aperture of 5.6, the 50 is clearly sharper in all comparable apertures, both in the center and in the corners. The 85 lags behind by about 1 to 2 f-stops and only achieves with an aperture of 5.6 what the 50 can already do with an aperture of 2.5. At aperture 8 and above, both lenses pull the same. So if you don't necessarily need the considerably larger exposure potential of the full format and the aperture 1.4, the 50 Nex is the best choice. PS: without downward scaling, the purely visual result is even more desolate for the 85.

A very good glass
As an interested amateur, I treated myself to this fixed focal length. The 50mm f/1.8 is really a very good lens. I would like to add a few words to the previous reviews: Very good workmanship and smooth running of the focusing ring, wonderful bokeh, especially at f1.8, consistent sharpness from the center to the corners of the picture. The operating noise of the autofocus means a certain amount of familiarization for me, because my standard zoom 18-55 mm "works" noiselessly. All in all, a recommendation for photographers who prefer a very good fixed focal length to a zoom. The image results are really excellent.

Best NEX lens?
don't normally give 5 stars in these reviews but this lens almost made my old Nex 3 feel like a new camera. For taking pictures of people, it's head and shoulders above any other NEX lens I've tried (this is my fourth lens). Essentially, the f1.8 aperture lets in so much light that the camera (along with image stabilization) can use faster shutter speeds to get a specific shot, which means a lot less blur and, in practice, beautifully sharp images. The f1.8 aperture also defocuses the background of the shots, making for simpler compositions that emphasize the main subjects in the frame. Also unlike many fast Primes, this pen is sharp down to F1.8. Of course, the 75mm equivalent focal length makes this a single-purpose lens, but don't let that put you off - it's a purpose that most people will need plenty of, and there's nothing wrong with doing one thing well. Here is a real example: Last year I went to a wedding. A nice occasion but the ceremony was indoors and it was a dull gray day. I used the stock zoom lens that came with the Nex (the 18-55mm) and none of my images came out all day; they were all blurry because people were moving too fast and I couldn't react in time to catch fleeting moments and that was because the zoom lens can only do about f5 at its 55mm zoom end and in any case it is on this one Focal length not very sharp. Last weekend we celebrated my little son's christening. A nice occasion but the ceremony was indoors and it was a dull gray day. I used this lens and every single one of my photos came out perfect - beautiful. No need for flash, no need for high ISO. I was even happy to set the camera to the default settings and let my friends take photos for me because I trusted the lens to get a good picture. I've never done that before! One thing I've found is that I have to go a step further backwards than I'm used to because the lens can't focus close-up. You must be a few feet away from your subject. In every other respect, this is the best money I've invested in photography since buying the camera. I was nervous about buying this as it's more expensive than the entry-level lenses in the Nex range. It turns out there's a very good reason for the difference - it just has a much better "success rate" for getting the right photo first time than any other lens I've used; it complements the money I originally invested in the Nex camera and adds another dimension it didn't have before.

A must for aesthetes!
Exactly what I wanted to capture the interesting details and moments. Such a small F value is so much fun, even in low light conditions.

Crisp images, easy to use. tap and click
This was bought for my wife. She's the classic selfie generation and I'm the photographer. We have another auto lens which is a bit smaller (I think 30mm) and gave great easy portraits but it wouldn't give the blurred background, sharp foreground effect and once in low light it struggled. No problem for the 50mm lens, tap the screen where you want it to focus, give it a second and beautiful clear clear images, with a blurred background. Anything over 1m behind the subject and it will start to blur. The lens works great in low light conditions. The woman wanted to keep some Christmas lights in the dark and the lens didn't even sweat. I was really stunned. In addition to close-up photos, the lens deals well with distant subjects and captures clear images. The only downsides I found with the lens were that the standard zoom required the photographer to be a bit further back than another 50mm lens I've used. This can be a little awkward when in tight spaces (a small house). The lens doesn't do well with night traffic or moving lights in the background. We were taking photos with the Christmas decorations in the background, whenever a car was coming or going, the lens would try to overcompensate and forget what to focus on.
