Monika, Bath Pro Photographer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Sharp images if you keep the speed above 1/100
Beautiful depth of field
Bad points:
It doesn't work with sony 7r stabilizer, so if you want to get motion blur it's almost impossible unless you use a tripod, which is alright if you use this as a portrait lens,

Manufacturer's Description

Sony 55mm F1.8 Lens

A 55mm, F1.8, 35mm full-frame E-mount prime lens, with Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* optics.

A 35mm full-frame format
This E-mount prime lens is designed to be used with α7 and α7R bodies for 35mm performance.

A large F1.8 maximum aperture
Allows more light to reach the camera sensor, producing rich, high contrast pictures.

Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens
Produces images in exceptional contrast and resolution with Carl Zeiss technology and a Sonnar T* anti-reflective coating.

A 55mm fixed focal length
Capture images in sharp detail with a ‘normal’ prime lens. Enjoy a higher level of optical performance than most zooms.

Minimise distortion
Aspherical lens elements ensures less internal reflection in a more compact design.

Smooth and responsive focus
A linear motor driven internal focusing mechanism produces quick autofocus and reduces minimum focal distance.

Shoot outdoors, rain or shine
Ideal for shooting in adverse weather conditions: critical areas of the lens exterior have been sealed against dust and moisture.

Smooth, rounded defocusing
A 9 blade circular aperture delivers natural defocusing effects or ‘bokeh’.

A versatile shooting experience
The SEL-55F18Z is ideal for shooting landscapes, portraits and action shots. This bright lens can handle indoor or low-light shoots.
