Sony DT 50mm f1.8 Reviewed

A major reason for its compact, lightweight lens design is the benefit of SteadyShot INSIDE™ in-camera image stabilization, built into every® α (alpha) DSLR camera -- and enabling lenses to eliminate the extra weight and expense of in-lens stabilization mechanisms. DT Lens Design.

It has a sticker here for us to scratch, then we may verify its genuine by sms.

7 Aperture blades , it gives a more circular effects.

.. this cave in design is simply serve as a hood.

indeed very light weight

Button for AF/MF .. when it was in AF mode - sounds of mechanic was subtle when it was fresh and new but after awhile for like a week or so ... the sound was just like other lenses did.
When in MF mode - focusing was smooth *Note - not to force turning the Focus ring when the switch is still in AF mode. This will increase tendency of spoiling the SAM(Smooth AutoFocus Mechanism).

It was 4pm and the light was strong and almost direct- no noticable CA, unless directly facing sunlight(point to the sun with a dark subject in between)

IMO ... this copy is a good one for sure. I'm not sure how long it can last since it was a plastic but the picture quality and sharpness is really surpass the Minolta one. The advance coating and 0.38m for minimum focal length are really worth for considering.
