A compact, lightweight, high-quality lens with a 50mm focal length (35mm format camera equivalent: 75mm) that is ideal for portraits and general-purpose photography. It is designed exclusively for use with a digital SLRs incorporating an APS-C type image sensor. Compact and weighing only 170g (approx.), the DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM reduces the need to carry heavy gear when shooting, yet offers crisp, natural imaging that is ideal for everything from portraits to scenic photos and snapshots. It also boasts a large, bright f/1.8 maximum aperture and a circular aperture mechanism for smooth background defocusing. Distinguished by ultra-sharp imaging across the focal plane, it also features a minimum focusing distance of 0.34m and a maximum magnification ratio of 0.2. In addition, a newly developed Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) is used to drive the focusing lens group.
