The Sony SEL-50F18 is marketed by Sony as an ideal lens for portrait photography. In addition it can also be used to photograph a variety of everyday subjects. The quiet auto focus means you can also use the SEL-50F18 when you are shooting High Definition movie clips.
The combination of image stabilisation and a large aperture means that you can produce handheld portraits in fading light. With such a large aperture you should also be able to throw backgrounds out of focus and bring your subject into sharp focus. The 7 blade circular aperture means that the defocused background takes on an attractive look too.
