Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
A compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles. Mounted on a Sony α (alpha) DSLR camera, the SAL-50M28 macro lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens.
Sharp macro focusing - You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders -- and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus, too.
Bright f2.8 aperture - In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony Alpha DSLR cameras, this lens captures bright, steady images, even working with hand-held cameras in low light.
High contrast and resolution - Excellent optical precision gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject.
Focus range limiter - Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus -- Close-up Range, or Telephoto Range.
Focus hold button - For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing.
Auto clutch - In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- which improves handling ease.
Circular aperture - Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect.
