50mm f/1.8

The new Sony NEX E Mount 50mm portrait lens gives anyone who has the standard NEX E Mount kit lens (18-55mm), or the NEX E Mount 16mm pancake, the ability to take portrait photos with a wide f/1.8 aperture, for more out of focus backgrounds, and better subject seperation. The lens features optical steady shot (image stabilisation), and the larger aperture should enable better shots in low light. We took these photos with the new lens, with the new 16.1 megapixel Sony NEX-5N, here are the sample photos for you to view, click to view larger, or click "Hi-Res" to view full size sample photos:

I have both the NEX 5 and 10 and love the camera.
A 50mm f1.8 is certainly very interesting but the photo samples shown in your Review are so ordinary it's impossible to get excited over the lens. There are 2 close-up shots, both of which are far from sharp, at least as seen on my computer monitor. I alway include a shot of type matter when checking out a new lens. Certainly some thing with a hard edge here and there. Your landscapes are also totally uninspiring. Poor shots of very ordinary scenes.
A f1.8 50mm lens on this camera will certainly be used for portraiture but none of your examples show people, let alone a portrait.
Sorry.
