Product Details

Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera Lens - SAL50F14

50mm focal length with a maximum aperture of F1.4: this quintessential fast “normal” lens formula has produced some of the greatest photographic masterpieces in history, and continues to serve as a photographic standard to this day. Of course not all 50mm F1.4 lenses are created equal, and the stunning clarity and contrast delivered by the SAL50F14 proves that it is one of the finest in its class. While the in-focus plane is sharp from corner to corner, the combination of F1.4 maximum aperture and circular aperture design makes it possible to elicit silky-smooth defocusing effects to enhance dimensionality and isolate important visual elements. This is a lens that should be part of every serious photo enthusiast’s palette.

I bought this lens specifically for portrait shoots and to have the ability to take pictures in low light without that much of a light source. This lens performs wonderfully in most all situations. 50mm is not to close and not to far away to allow you to get the shot you want indoors and outdoors.

This lens even works with my Kenko 2x Telconverter essentially making it a 100mm f/3.5 lens :D"Response from Sony Style:ByGina,Sony Style Community Team,December 26, 2008Love the photos Icefreez!

Out of the box, this lens was amazingly sharp with very accurate auto-focus. After about two months & 300 shots, the calibration on the auto-focus started to degrade. It now focuses about three inches further away at f/5.6 at eight feet than what you are actually focusing on. It's not the camera (an A33), which is still quite accurate with all my other Sony lenses. I sent it to Sony, but they were evidently unable to recalibrate it, as the performance was unimproved when they returned it to me.

Great lens!

By 

from SF Bay Area

Comments about Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera Lens:

Color, crispness, clarity are all great, even in low light settings. Lots of flexibility when playing with the focal plane. The autofocus is fast enough and pretty accurate. For the price, this lens is a bargain.

Best lens for the price

By 

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera Lens:

I'm still amateur and have yet to put this lens to a full capability test, but I'm quite impressed already. To get a good lens doing 1.4 for this price is just amazing. I have no complaints.

Buy this lens!

By 

from St. George's, Grenada, West Indies

Comments about Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera 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 aberration. I'll switch to this lens from my zoom and run around to compensate because the quality of pictures I get is so superior in color, sharpness, and versatility compared to my other lenses.

Excellent for low light situations

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera Lens:

Have bought this lens specifically for low light situations like in a aquarium etc. where the subject is not always holding still and fast shutter speed is required. The lens is very sharp. I use it on the A850 with excellent results. Can only recommend.

      • Price not too overwhelming
      • reasonable price

      Cons

      • Not yet discovered.. Oh yea. Not micro. Focus distance could be somehow closer.

        Comments about Sony 50mm F1.4 Camera Lens:

        50mm is not too far or too close. In fact, 50mm is actually the most similar with human eye's sight (consider how much you can actually pay attention on or focus on) with f/1.4 it gives you very artistic feel of photos. Usually, lens has lower performance in the extreme fx of its own. however this 50F1.4 does not. Its image is almost perfect in f/1.4. and the price is so reasonable that you have to buy one, just in case to want to take some picture with it. (dark environment, flowers, close shot, etc)

          It just came to my house today. It took one day to ship! Even though they said 5-7. I alms ordered expedited too.

          Sure it's a bit costly, but in my opinion, well worth the money.
