there have been loads. 90-100mm seems to be the consensus. I'd be happy with either at the moment.

yes, just like nikon ff lens on aps c. same crop factor. i.e the 35 2.8 would be 52.5mm and 55mm would be 82.5mm


So if Sony does indeed come out with a 100ish-mm macro for FE, as rumors suggest, then it would be similar to shooting a Nikon 105mm on a D7000.

The NEX series would then have 30, 50 and 100mm macro options and the FE line would just have 100mm. (or the others in crop mode).

Advice in order of importance

  • Be Safe
  • Have fun - really, don't put too much pressure on yourself
  • Don't chase subjects - (i see you have a macro set up) if you see something larger, just enjoy the interaction, don't feel compelled to take a photo of everything.
  • Get close - clearer photos & less scatter
  • High shutter speed/mid to high strobe power for black backgrounds; Low shutter speed for natural light backgrounds.
  • have fun

without a doubt they work




am loathe to buy any e mount lens that is not FE at the moment. Hence I wanted to ask about the sony 50mm before buying
