Sony 50mm F1.4 Lens Review

 

The Sony 50mm F1.4 is the company's current offering in the classic 'fast standard' category, and was introduced at the genesis of the Alpha system in July 2006. Of course its origins go back well before then; this lens is essentially a reworking of...

Unusually good performance on APS-C even at wide apertures ; Excellent image quality when stopped down on both full-frame and APS-C ; Low distortion

Very soft across most of the frame at wide apertures on full frame ; Bokeh chromatic aberration, most visible at wide apertures ; Vignetting at wide apertures on full frame (essentially disappears by F3.3) ; Corner softness on full-frame - never quite...

Having reviewed four other 50mm F1.4 lenses of similar design over the past few months, we weren't expecting any major surprises from the Sony version. And in broad terms it's not hugely different from its Canon, Nikon and Pentax equivalents; as befits...

Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens

 

The Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens is a compact macro-focus lens that covers the full range from life-size to infinity. "Life size" macro imaging means that the image you capture is the same size as the subject in reality, giving you spectacularly sharp...

Does Sony's small and inexpensive prime lens have the performance too?

Small ; Well-priced ; Long focus travel

Image quality disappointing ; Stiff focus ring

Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS (SEL-50F18) - Review / Lens Test

 

The Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS is a more than welcome addition to the (rather slim) Sony NEX lens lineup. Technically it is not without flaws. It delivers a very sharp center performance but the corners/borders are soft at large apertures. However,...

Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM lens review

 

Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this budget 50mm lens for APS-C DSLRs sporting Sony's new smooth autofocus

AF hunts occasionally

Sony 50mm f/1.8 DT ( SAL-50F18 ) - Lab Test / Review

 

The Sony 50mm f/1.8 DT ( SAL-50F18 ) is pretty much a no-brainer for Sony APS-C DSLR users. The lens is very sharp even at f/1.8 and the resolution is about as good as it gets around f/5.6. Lateral CAs are absolutely negligible which adds to the...

Sony 50mm f/1.4 review

 

What this budget prime might lack in acronyms is more than made up for in overall image quality as this WDC review of the Sony 50mm f/1.4 lens discovers.

Great real-world results

AF is noisy and non-IF

Ignore the lack of acronyms and look at its performance instead: Sony's f/1.4 has some weaknesses but elsewhere it's a real cracker.
