The Sony SAL-50F18 is a competitively priced lens that Sony have built for use with Digital SLRs with APS-C sized sensors. This type of lens has a fixed focal length, but is well suited to a wide range of general photo opportunities. This type of lens is also often popular with portrait photographers.
One of the advantages of the fixed focal length is that it is easier for manufacturers to add large apertures. This makes the SAL-50F18 an ideal choice if you find yourself taking photos in lowlight situations on a regular basis. The large aperture also means that you can create images with a shallow depth of field.
