7artisans Photoelectric 50mm f/1.8 Overview
A flexible optic for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, the 50mm f/1.8 Lens from 7artisans is an especially compact portrait-length prime lens. Featuring a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, this lens strikes an ideal balance between portability and speed to make it well-suited for everyday shooting. Complementing image quality, a multi-layer coating has been applied to reduce ghosting and flare in order to realized greater contrast and color fidelity, especially when working in harsh lighting and backlit conditions. The manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 1.6′ away and its 12-blade diaphragm produces a smooth, rounded bokeh quality.
