I love this little lens. This is my best image so far, taken on my a6000 at the zoo:

Today's main lens of choice was the SEL50F18 on the A6000. All wide open...

As lenses go it's not very expensive and it's performance is excellent. A 'nifty-fifty' is a great lens for the crop-sensor bodies as it's equivalent FL of 75mm makes it a fine portrait lens. I'm putting it on my list.

I recently saw some macro shots with extreme bokeh, found out that they where taken with the SEL50F18 and some ext tubes, sure enough, its a nice solution:

This was F8, hand held, with stabilization (electronic extension tubes)

I am prepping some other examples showcasing the bokeh that comes out of it, but its a great, lite weight macro solution.

I wonder if you could have brought the front-most node in the center into focus? Otherwise that's a pretty great shot.

Been pondering trading in most of my APS-C stuff, including the 5N, and getting either the A6500, the A9, or waiting for the next FF. Was going to keep the 24Z and the 10-18.

Last week, I did a shoot for my daughter at Stanley Park in Westfield, MA. Lovely place. I took the SEL50F18, and damn! When that thing is sharp, it is SHARP.
