Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens - SAL50M28 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Macro This lens is hard to beat for sharpness. I think the 100mm f2.8 macro has a slight edge on it due to the focusing distance on live insects. The 50 sometimes focuses too close and the insects fly away. This lens also doubles as a great portrait lens as well as being good for landscapes. On a APS-c sensor camera it works as a 75mm making it close to the 85mm 1.4 as a reasonably priced substitute. If your on a budget and looking for a Macro or a Portrait lens. You wont go wrong with this one. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prime lens I have been a Minolta/Sony user for years. Over the years I have preferred fixed focal length lenses to zooms. This lens reinforces that preference. The lens is constructed really well, from the built in hood to the metal lens mount. It has great weight and balance. The focusing motor is smooth and quiet. The F2.8 aperture provides an opportunity for some nice low light shooting as well as a pleasing bokeh when taking portraits. However, the main reason I bought this lens was for its macro capability. I wanted the 1:1 ratio without using close up lenses. I wanted the ability to take macro shots without the use of a tripod. I have what I want with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Macros! This lens produces very sharp images regardless if you're in macro or limiter mode. It also doubles up great as a portrait lens if you're on a crop sensor camera (bringing you up to 75mm). It's built quite well, feels solid in the hand, and isn't too heavy or light. It produces creamy smooth bokeh which makes portrait shots stand out wonderfully. Like stated above, the macro shots are amazingly sharp as well!
