Good news for Sony shooters: they will have a new full-frame macro lens for their E-mount cameras in September—the FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens (model SEL50M28).



This is a true macro lens with 1:1 magnification. You'll find several features including focus-mode switch, focus-range limiter and a focus-hold button.

You'll be able to get close, up to 6.3 inches from the front of the lens. It features extra-low dispersion glass to cope with chromatic aberration. It weighs in at 8.4 ounces.

The new FE 50mm F2.8 Macro lens will be available in September for about $500.
