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...

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...

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/1.4 Standard Lens - SAL-50F14 spacer

 

An ultra-bright standard lens for fast, accurate shooting by available light. For quick candid shots that capture "the decisive moment," this lens provides superb clarity and visual accuracy even with fully open aperture when working indoors or in...

In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony α (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this lens achieve pinpoint sharpness even working with hand-held camera by available light

Sony 50mm f/1.4 AF

Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro

 

Sony's 50mm Macro lens is fairly squat and compact with a simple design.

Sony 50mm f/2.8 D Macro

 

Coupled to a Sony full-frame D-SLR such as the a850 or a900, the Sony 50mm f/2.8 D Macro is a true 50mm lens in 35mm terms and turns into a 75mm lens when used with a Sony APS-C sensor D-SLR with 1.5x crop factor.

Buy this lens!

 

I go out of my way to use this lens. The 1.4 aperture is a lot of fun and gets great shots with beautiful bokeh. I've shot a couple weddings and this lens is indispensable in low light settings. I haven't really had any problems with focus or...

Incredible color, great in low light
