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.
Make the move from the standard zoom and explore the world of portrait photography with the Sony SAL-50F18 50mm f/1.8 DT AF Lens for your DSLR camera. It boasts a large aperture which makes it easy to get great-looking portrait shots. The SAL50F18 is one of the first fixed focal length lenses in the DT series, which is designed exclusively for DSLRs that use an APS-C type sensor.
SteadyShot INSIDE In-Camera Image Stabilization - A major reason for its compact, lightweight lens design is the benefit of SteadyShot INSIDE in-camera image stabilization, built into every alpha DSLR camera -- and enabling lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass - To reduce chromatic aberration at telephoto extension, correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well defined colors.
DT Lens Design - A more compact, lightweight lens designed specifically for the APS-size CCD imager used in some Sony alpha DSLR cameras.
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.
Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) - The built-in Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) eliminates the need to use a mechanical coupling system in the camera body to transfer auto foucs (AF) drive power and control signals to the lens. Instead, AF control signals from the camera body are sent to the lens-mounted SAM unit, which drives the focusing lens group directly, helping to assure smooth AF response.
