A perfect macro prime for everyday use
This versatile 50 mm "normal" macro prime lens for full-frame sensors is ideal for everyday photography as well as capturing impressive 1:1 macro images. You can get as close as 6.3" from the subject while the normal angle of view makes it possible to include background elements for added creative freedom. Controls and operation are optimized for easy, efficient close-up shooting.
Get close for spectacular macro
With a minimum focusing distance of 16 centimeters you can get close enough for truly imposing life-size shots. There is less need to move the entire camera to find a usable shooting distance, so it is easy to shoot tabletop subjects without having to leave your seat and move around. This is an extremely useful lens for everyday situations.
Excellent image-wide sharpness and bokeh
A high-performance optical design that includes an ED glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, even when shooting close, contributing to outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness. Out-of-focus backgrounds are beautiful too, with a circular aperture mechanism helping to produce smooth, natural-looking bokeh that can make your subjects stand out.
Compact, lightweight design
Max. 2.78 inch diameter and 2.79 inch length with a total weight of only 8.4 oz (236 grams) for outstanding mobility and easy handling. This lens is a perfect match for the compact ? series, and an ideal choice for everyday use.
Comprehensive control for easy macro
A focus-mode switch can be used to quickly switch between manual and auto focus, adapting easily to any macro opportunities that arise. A focus-range limiter sets the lens’ focus range for the fastest possible AF operation, and a focus-hold button freezes focus wherever it is pressed for controlled, stable shooting.
