Get a quality lens with fixed 50mm mid-range telephoto focal length and f/1.8 aperture. Take advantage of the built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system which provides around a 4-stop shutter speed advantage, making it significantly easier to achieve crisp, blur-free images and video. Get beautiful, softly blurred backgrounds thanks to the circular aperture of the large maximum aperture of this lens. A linear motor used for focus drive contributes to low-noise focus operation, while a stepping motor built into the lens, technology inherited from Sony's professional camcorders, results in smooth, quiet aperture actuation ideal for recording movies. An elegant aluminum alloy exterior blends beautifully with the graceful design of an E-mount. Use direct Manual Focus (DMF) to go directly to manual focusing after autofocus lock-on without having to switch modes to facilitate focus adjustments on the fly -- it's perfect for portraits where depth of field may be extremely shallow.
