The modern APS-C nifty-fifty from Sony has been around for a while now. It’s been reviewed many times but I’d like to take a look at it myself in this review.
The lens is made of a lightweight metal exterior and contains plastic parts inside. Handling feels good on the a6300 – I quickly forget there’s a lens on the camera when shooting. The focus ring is smooth but not buttery. The focus-by-wire mechanism works well with this lens and while I don’t have any issues using it, it’s not as nice as a dedicated manual focus experience.
