5.0 out of 5 stars As a new dad, this is the only lens I use, 17 Nov. 2012
By 
This review is from: Sony 50mm F1.8 E-Mount Lens (Accessory)
Really lovely lens. I am a completely amateur photographer, I never venture into manual mode and I'm not frequently changing my settings.

This lens is perfect for taking pictures of my daughter. It lets in lots of light and creates a fantastically shallow depth of field so she's in focus while the background is blurred.

And my Sony NEX5N can achieve a really fast shutter speed, so I can still use this lens in really bright light outdoor without over-exposing the image. The lens lets in lots of light so you get a great picture, the fast shutter speed stops it from being over-exposed and also freezes the action (so no more blurry toddler when she waves her arms around).

The only even tiny disadvantage is that 50mm means it's automatically 'quite zoomed in'. So if you're in a small room, you might have to press yourself right into the corner of the room to get everything you want in the shot to fit.

All in all, extremely good value for money - take as good pictures as much more expensive lens / camera combos.
