Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens
Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens: The Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens is a compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp photos of insects, flowers, gemstones, postage stamps and other small nature subjects and collectibles. Mounted on the Sony Alpha 100 camera, the Sony 50mm Macro lens provides a 75mm focal length (35mm equivalent), which means it can also be used as a standard and midrange telephoto lens. Get incredibly close to small subjects with the Sony SAL-50M28 macro lens. It allows you to capture the most subtle details with spectacular clarity.|
Sony Alpha 100 - 10 Megapixel|
The Sony Alpha A100 camera is an instant classic: the top-quality 10 Megapixel DSLR system camera that builds on a two-decade legacy of Minolta photographic leadership, accepts 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide, and introduces Sony imaging innovations like high-sensitivity shooting with Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically increase detail in bright and dark picture areas, new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start Auto focus system for faster camera response.
Sony 50mm macro lens - Super SteadyShot
You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders, and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too. In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony Alpha 100 DSLR camera, this lens captures bright, steady images even working with hand-held camera in low light. Excellent optical precision gives your shots greater visual accuracy for close analysis of your subject.

Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens SAL-50M28 - Aperture and Auto focus
Speeds auto-focus response by limiting the range of distances that are brought into focus, Close-up Range, or Telephoto Range. For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing. In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate, which improves handling ease. 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.
