A compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life Size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles. Mounted on the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 camera, the SAL-50M28 macro lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens.


  • Sharp Macro Focusing - You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders, and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too.
  • Focus Range Limiter - Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus, Close-up Range or Telephoto Range.
  • Circular Aperture - Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
  • Bright f2.8 Aperture - In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held cameras in low light.
  • Focus Hold Button - For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.
  • High Contrast and Resolution - Excellent optical precisison gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject.
  • Auto Clutch - In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate, which improves handling ease.
