    Fun with the 50mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens

    Anybody got the 50mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens?

    If so, how is it on NEX-7 and 5N?

    Yes I picked one up on saturday. On the NEX7 it seems very good so far. I have only tried a few shots with it but for the price it seems worthwhile.

    Awesome Jaladhi. Let me know how it goes. I've been very curious about this lens since I tend to use my minolta 50mm 1.4 quite a bit and wouldn't mind AF on occasion. Maybe we can do a swap sometime and see how they compare...

    Mine just arrived yesterday. Image quality (only a couple of shots) seems very good. I'll need some more time to see if it replaces the 24mm f/1.8 that's always on my 7.

    Cheers, Matt

    From Photozone early samples, it looks like there's lots of CA and purple fringing... sigh.

    I believe he is referring to these. I haven't had a chance to look at them much, myself, yet. Sony 50mm f/1.8 OSS - photozone's Photos | SmugMug

    Uwe: These both look great to me. Nice detail and color. I still haven't processed anything with the 50 f/1.8. They're going to have to re-do that weather resistive barrier.

    Cheers, Matt

    The lens looks good close to medium range, but landscape sharpness is meh.

    Not terrible but not like a contax 45.

    Re: Anybody got the 50mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens?

    I think I can get quite nice results with DxO 7.2.1 (even without the 50mm supported by an own lens module).

    Mr Steinmueller, it looks like the 50 1.8 takes a nice picture. What camera are these two photos on? What do you think of this lens?

    Regards,
    John

    These are both from the NEX-5N. The black covers are ISO 2000 and the the other ISO 800 at f/3.5.

    I think this is a good lens for the money and using the right processing (we use DxO right now) you can get good detail.

    Uwe.....I think you could take a piece of Pyrex and take a good picture with it.
