New FE 50mm F/2.8 Macro Lens – In Stock!

By | December 17, 2016

Sony announced the NEW FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens a few months back, and it’s now IN STOCK!

Touching down at $498 US, it’s not the cheapest lens, but for Sony it’s not crazy expensive either. More of a fair price I would say considering the full frame coverage, quality optics, 7-bladed round aperture, has a focus hold button and limiter switch, plus it’s dust and moisture resistant.

We all know that moisture -resistant does not mean it’s water proof, but I’m still glad to see the FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens has some protection from the elements. With Macro lenses in general, you need to get really close to your subject, so wet leaves for example could be bumping into the lens and the moisture-resistance is really good to have!
