best value "portrait" lens for sony APSC4 Posted by: from: on I have a Sony APSC Camera A77, this lens has a effective range for a great "portrait" lens, IQ is better than f2.8 kit lens. especially at 50mm the kit lens is at softest focal range. Highly recommended for taking portraits shots. focal length is a bit long for indoor. you can consider 35mm/f1.8 for indoor uses

The most versatile lens I carry!5 Posted by: from: on Out of the lenses, I own, the 50mm f/1.8 prime lens from Sony is my absolute favorite. Portraits look stunning at such a low aperture and details look incredibly sharp. I would recommend this lens for casual shooters who want to start into portrait photography or want to add more of a "depth of field" look to their shots.

Very inexpensive...very good!5 Posted by: from: on Light lens, plastic mount great for low light, good bokeh, and less than 200 bucks. I found it on sale for 67 dollars so how could I not buy it for my a77ii. Even at full price it makes for well worth it prime lens
