Sony 50mm F/1.4 Overview
With its normal perspective, fast maximum aperture, and high-end design, the Planar T FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA Lens from Sony is easy to see as a go-to standard optic for full-frame E-mount shooters. Starting off with the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, photographers and videographers will enjoy exceptional low-light performance along with the ability to create shallow depth-of field effects. The Zeiss Planar optical design benefits users by providing an almost distortion-free image, while the incorporation of one Advanced Aspherical, one aspherical, and one extra-low dispersion element work to minimize spherical and chromatic aberrations. On top of that, the legendary Zeiss T anti-reflective coating combats flare and ghosting for crisp, clear imagery.Performance is top notch as well with speedy autofocus provided by a ring drive Super Sonic Wave Motor (SSM) system. An AF/MF switch is provided for quickly changing between the modes and an internal focus design maintains overall lens length during use. A physical aperture ring is present on the lens which can be de-clicked at the flip of a switch, making this a great option for video in addition to stills. An eleven-blade circular diaphragm further improves image quality by ensuring smooth bokeh at a wide range of aperture settings. Additionally, a dust and moisture-resistant construction will keep you working even in less than ideal environments.
Breathtaking resolution and contrast
A refined double-gauss design incorporating two aspherical elements, including one precision AA (advanced aspherical) element, works with an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to suppress field curvature and distortion while maintaining outstanding image-wide resolution and contrast from the widest aperture at any focusing distance.
F1.4 for versatility and beautiful bokeh
The F1.4 maximum aperture can be used to create images with shallow depth of field and smooth, beautiful bokeh. A bright maximum aperture like this also makes it possible to shoot at high shutter speeds in low lighting. Of course the lens can be stopped down to create extended depth of field when required.
11 blades for natural bokeh highlights
Although Sony’s circular aperture design usually employs up to 9 blades, this lens incorporates 11 blades that take bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty. Natural-looking highlights in the out-of-focus areas enhance overall atmosphere while providing a gentle sense of depth.
Excellent colour and contrast
ZEISS® lenses are renowned for their outstanding colour reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS® T* Coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
Autofocus that supports high resolution
Focus drive is handled by a ring drive SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system that is capable of positioning the heavy focus group required by large aperture lenses with speed and precision. Fast, accurate focus is essential to bring out the full performance potential of high-resolution camera bodies, whether you’re shooting stills or movies.
Convenient fingertip control
A physical aperture ring allows intuitive aperture control. An aperture click switch makes it possible to enable or disable the aperture ring click stops as required. Moviemakers will want the clicks OFF, while photographers often prefer tactile click feedback. There’s also a focus mode switch for convenient manual/auto focus selection.
Reliable in challenging conditions
A sealed dust and moisture-resistant design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions. Although the design is dust and moisture-resistant, absolute protection from dust and moisture is not guaranteed.
