    As the post title says I thought I would share some images taken using the Sony 50mm f1.8. I bought the lens used and really like it's optical quality, bokeh and price.

    Hope you like the images.

    I tried to choose my favorite and merely confused myself. These are all great, for different reasons. Really fine work!

    #2 says it well, "everything is awesome."

    I find the 50mm a good street lens. I usually shoot from the hip using the LCD pointing up towards my eyes. Settings used are continuous AF, 11 fps and aperture usually around f2.2. I try not to be noticed so that the subject continues to behave naturally for the best result.

    Some trivia - the SEL 50mm 1.8 was the world's first stabilized 50mm 1.8.

    Didn't know that. Haven't tried it on my A7ii yet.
    Not real fast, but really nice.
