Great lens at a really good price for Sony. In stock 7th Feb.

Propoganda below:

Enjoy a near perfect portrait-length perspective on your APS-C E-mount camera with this black E 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens from Sony, which provides a 75mm equivalent focal length. It's fast f/1.8 maximum aperture and seven-blade circular diaphragm help create beautiful images by allowing users to use selective focus techniques with the shallow depth of field. On top of this, the lens is equipped with Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for reducing the impact of camera shake. Also, it has an internal focus mechanism for fast, responsive AF and reaching a minimum focus distance of 1.3'.

  • Designed for APS-C format cameras, this 50mm lens will offer users a 75mm equivalent focal length, making it ideal for portraiture and other short telephoto applications.
  • The fast f/1.8 maximum aperture facilitates working in low light conditions and allows shooters to create images with an extremely shallow depth of field.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds. This stabilization system can be combined with select camera's sensor-shift type image stabilization for more effective control of camera blur.
  • An internal focus mechanism contributes to faster, more responsive autofocus, the minimum focus distance of 1.3', and easier handling as the lens does not change in length during use.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

Great lens. Just remember it's really a 75mm on APS-C.
Is this any good for Sony A6000?

its 50mm on any camera, its 75mm in 35mm camera equivalent but then anyone that cares about equivalence would know that already
anyone that doesn't know about equivalence or focal lengths will just be confused and/or not care

Just to clarify, the active focal length will depend on the sensor of the camera. Sony a7 and a9 are full frame cameras where the sensor will not multiply the stated focal length. Sony 5000s and 6000s have a smaller APSC sensor that will multiply the focal length by 1.5, so as previously mentioned you'll get an effective 75mm on a 50mm lens so if standing in the same place with both types of camera and taking the same subject, the APSC will zoom in to the central area but you'll forego the bits around the edge you'll get with the full frame camera.

thats not a clarification
the focal length is a function of the lens alone
the FOV and 'equivalent' focal length depends on lens and sensor

Technically true, but I was just trying to be helpful to newbies who might not know the difference as opposed to wading through a glossary of terms and acronyms and being sweepingly dismissive of their knowledge or desire to know more.

but newbies dont even need the equivalences involved - introducing them for no reason is what may confuse

whats worse is giving the wrong info
I think it's useful to clarify the equivalent focal length on this lens as most smaller than 35mm sensors are quoted as equivalent focal lengths apart from micro 4/3 and APS-C cameras which can lead to confusion. In particular, although 50mm/75mm doesn't sound much different, it's more than you'd think as it's quite a bit narrower than than the classic 50mm on a 35mm film camera some might be thinking of.

In terms of whether this is a good lens or not, it's relatively inexpensive, it's sharp for the price, it has a wide aperture meaning it's great in low light and for blurry background photos plus as a bonus it also has optical image stabilisation. On the downside it's quite a sizable lens (quite a bit longer than a 50mm F1.4 FX lens) and although I was aware it was narrower than 50mm on a FF camera, I've found it less useful than expected.
Ordered! Cheers.

Brilliant.
Great price... I've sold second-hand ones on eBay for more.
Great, super-sharp lens. One of the best available on Sony crop.
I must have a poor copy - not that impressed and I hardly use it.
Not that useful in confined settings.

I've only used it at a wedding so far for candid shots. Really impressed though.

Probably the best value high quality lens for it
Amazon say it's been reduced from £290. But it's £199.99 in most places. Was it ever really that price?
