I went ahead with the Sony DT 50mm F/1.8 SAM review, because it’s new, and seemed more exciting than the Minolta AF 28-135mm, I guess that one will be next. I compared the new lens to the Sony 50mm F/1.4, and have a few surprises (or not) in the bonus section at the bottom, and in the conclusion. This newest lens from Sony is being marketed as a “portrait” lens, so check out the optical qualities to see if it will fit your needs. I’m still wondering why Sony used 50mm, instead of 35mm like Nikon did with the DX 35mm F/1.8 lens. The equivalent 75mm is awfully long indoors or in confined areas. When used specifically as a “portrait” lens, then the focal length is appropriate.
