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 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

Lightweight; Quality when stopped down; Cheap

AF hunts occasionally

Expert review by:

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.

Sony 50mm f/2.8 macro

 

The Sony 50mm f/2.8 macro is a further survivor from the Minolta era. Naturally it has been redesigned to match the look and feel of Sony Alpha lens series but under the skin little if anything has changed. It it, obviously, a full format lens which...

The Sony 50mm f/2.8 macro is certainly a very good lens but it does not really stand out from the crowd - macro lenses simply tend to be top performers. The resolution potential of the lens is very high straight from f/2.8. The vignetting is usually...

Expert review by:

Sony 50mm f/1.4

 

The Sony 50mm f/1.4 is currently the only standard lens available in Sony Alpha mount. Mostlikely it is not a new lens but simply the relabeled variant of the old Minolta AF 50mm f/1.4 RS plusADI encoding.On an APS-C DSLR its focal length is equivalent...

The Sony 50mm f/1.4 is a typical representative of the standard lenses that were designed back inthe 70s to 80s. The max. aperture (f/1.4) should be generally avoided due to weak contrast,poor borders and a significant amount of longitudinal chromatic...

Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens - SAL-50M28

 

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 photos of insects, flowers,...

You can get closer to your subject to capture low-angle shots of insects, flowers and other natural wonders -- and broad depth of field lets you keep backgrounds in focus too

Does this 50mm prime lens deliver on its low price? Find out with the Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM lens review

Compact and very affordable

Non-internal focusing

A very useful lens that performs well and carries a rock-bottom price tag. If I were a Sony user then this lens would simply have to be in my camera bag.
