Re: Sony 50mm f/1.8 for interviews?

I really like the 50mm/1.8 OSS... it has a nice vibe too it. The 35mm/1.8 OSS feels more clinical in comparison.
OSS is a must for any handheld, imo. They both work great with face recognition as well which is a great feature to have.

if you already have the 24mm/1.8 then the 50mm makes perfect sense as a compliment.

Re: Sony 50mm f/1.8 for interviews?

thx Dmitri for your answer. Before I saw your answer I was reading into old minolta and olympus zuiko lenses. These are cheap but all manual and need an adapter.

After that I found this test about several lenses. And yes, the sony SEL50F18 is indeed sharper in the centre on the widest apertures, (sharper than those old minolta, olympus,...,) that's what I need.

Re: Sony 50mm f/1.8 for interviews?

Not specific to the SEL Sony lens but to the FOV for interviews issue. I've done 2 recently using a 35mm and a 50mm with the Sony SCL PL primes for the F3 (also super 35mm sensor). For me it's strictly based on how much room I have between subject and lens. I did a test in preparation using the same aperture, subject to background distance and composition but varied the lenses. This is the result.
