    I had a chance to make some quick and dirty test shots with Sony NEX-5N equipped with the new 50mm f/1.8 OSS lens. The lens itself is exactly the same size as a standard 18-55mm zoom, build quality is also very similar. It comes with a rather deep hood and a 49mm cap.

    My first impressions of the lens are very positive. The AF is very fast. It's also absolutely silent in operation.

    Image quality seems to be very good. The lens is sharp with smooth background rendition.

    Some shots:

    Overall this is the first really good lens for the NEX series. It's also not very expensive. I really hope Sony will produce more lenses of this quality.
