Product Details

Sony Carl Zeiss Planar T 50mm F1.4 ZA SSM Camera Lens, Model SAL50F14Z

Flaunt your portrait-taking prowess with this Sony 50mm A-mount f/1.4 lens. The ultra-wide aperture lets in plenty of light so that you can take advantage of shallower depths of field to bring your subject into sharp relief, and the circular shape of the aperture ensures the background forms a smooth, creamy bokeh. This Sony portrait lens incorporates extra-low dispersion glass as well as two aspherical lens elements so that every photo comes out as sharp as possible with almost no flare, ghosting or chromatic effects.

When you want to take photos using your full-frame camera, this Sony 50mm lens is ideal. It's extremely light thanks to the lack of zoom mechanism, letting you hold it in the right position for long periods of time — perfect for studio shooting — and because it uses a rear focusing element, the overall length of the lens doesn't change. Add a polarizing, UV or ND filter using the 72mm filter ring. Impressively silent motors for the focusing and aperture rings produce seamless responses from this Sony 50mm A-mount f/1.4 lens every time.


  • Legendary Carl Zeiss® optics
    A great camera starts with a great lens and Sony has collaborated with Carl Zeiss to create a series of high-quality interchangeable lenses for digital SLT and NEX cameras. Precision lenses by Carl Zeiss are prized by serious photographers and film-makers around the world and the company’s precision optical instruments have helped document some of the most iconic moments in human history and ensure for the best in image quality
  • A new optical design for top-end image quality
    The luxurious new optical design features 8 elements in 5 groups, with two aspherical elements for ultimate performance despite being a standard 50mm lens. The design is extremely effective at correcting various aberrations and realizes flat reproduction characteristics (minimal field curvature) befitting the renowned "Planar" name. Moreover, the combination of a rear-focus system and aspheric surfaces achieves high contrast from infinity to close distances for clear, sharp images even when the aperture is wide open
  • Circular Aperture
    With its 9-blade circular aperture, a design said to produce the most beautiful bokeh, this lens realizes beautiful defocusing unique to Sony and meets the stringent demands of advanced-class users who are serious about photographic expression
  • SteadyShot INSIDE™ image stabilization
    The SteadyShot INSIDE™ image stabilization system built into Sony A-mount cameras provides image stabilization without affecting image quality, an advantage that supports the high depiction performance of top-class lenses
  • Quiet and smooth AF operation thanks to SSM
    Autofocusing is smooth and quiet, courtesy of a Super Sonic wave Motor (SSM). Excellent focusing performance is complemented by features including a focus hold button, a focus ring that doesn’t rotate during AF operation, a DMF (Direct Manual Focus) function, and a rear-focus system that maintains the same lens body length during autofocusing
  • Dust and drip resistant design
    The lens offers dust and drip resistance that meet the standards of mid-range models like the a99 and a77. The main drive unit is sealed with rubber packing, etc., to realize ample dust and drip resistance as a system when mounted on a camera to withstand tough usage in harsh environments
  • High-grade metal body
    The high-grade lens body is constructed of aluminum that offers both high rigidity and an attractive finish that contributes to pride of ownership
  • Carl Zeiss® Planar Lens
    The Carl Zeiss® Planar lens first became synonymous with high-performance lenses by realizing a large aperture, flat reproduction characteristics, and the successful removal of astigmatism. Once the T* coating was introduced to dramatically reduce internal reflection from its progressive double Gauss design (with front-back symmetry), Planar became one of the most renowned lenses in the Carl Zeiss lineup, which is synonymous with high-performance standard lenses
  • Carl Zeiss® T* Coating
    Coated optics were pioneered by Carl Zeiss® -- and this superb lens features T* (T-Star) coating that virtually eliminates the lens flare, internal reflection and light scattering that can otherwise occur at glass-to-air surfaces
  • Superior Large-Aperture Performance
    Like other large-aperture Carl Zeiss® lens designs, this f1.4 lens is simply magnificent in its ability to capture brilliant high-resolution images in low-light conditions requiring fully open aperture
  • SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor)
    Designed for fast, smooth, silent automatic focusing, this unique technology achieves high torque at low speed with rapid start/stop response. It operates through the ability of a piezoelectric device to reshape itself quickly when voltage is applied
  • Glass-Molded Aspherical Lens Elements
    These precision lens elements correct distortion for sharper, more visually accurate images
  • ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass
    Because light of different wavelength (or color) bends at different angles when it passes through a lens, ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass is used in Carl Zeiss® lenses to eliminate chromatic aberration by correcting certain wavelengths of light for sharp, clear images with well-defined colors
