An outstanding lens

Larry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is one of my favorite lenses, hands down. I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer, and I use this more than 50% of the time. The Zeiss opticals truly set this lens apart, and at 1.4, it is just stunning. The motor is very quiet and smooth, and the 50 1.4 focuses extremely quickly.

Amazing lens. I own every Sony Zeiss full frame ...

  • Summary: Amazing lens. I own every Sony Zeiss full frame lens an I can tell you that this is not just technically good, sharp from corner to corner as a Plannar design should be but it has a lot of character, creates beautiful images, really addicted to it.

Very useful

  • Excerpt: I decided to stop using my multi focal 18-200 lens and go to fixed focal. Surveying my most used lenses on my Leica I decided to go with the 24mm Zeiss and the 50mm Zeiss for my NEX7. I have now used the 50mm at all apertures and am very pleasantly surprised at the sharpness and resolution it gives.

I'm very happy with this Lens

10 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have little to complain about with this Lens, it is very well built, delivers very sharp, contrasty, excellent color results. Expensive: yes. Only complaint is coupled with the LAEA4 on a Sony A7r, and it's a camera issue, that it hunts on auto focus in low light
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

A Sony Winner

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Sony/Zeiss 50 mm f/1.4 lens a few weeks ago and have taken numerous pictures under a variety of lighting conditions. In short, this is an excellent lens (for [$] bucks, it better be). Images are very sharp with excellent resolution and color saturation.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Exceptional Lens

26 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Let me start by saying that this lens is amazing. It's become my standard lens that I keep on my full frame SONY a99. I have the 85MM f/1.4 Zeiss that I use for portraits and love using that so I wanted something I could use to replace my standard 24-70mm f/2.8 Zeiss.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive

The whole package.

  • Summary: For a technical review read Kurt Munger's in depth analysis. As for real life analysis it's simply fantastic. I've been an avid shooter of the 50mm 1.4 Sony for over two years. This has all the magic I've come to love in my 135mm 1.8 Zeiss.

It's a keeper'...

D. Ortego "D.", Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATE: 17 April 2014 After two months of using this lens in Europe I'm very impressed with the results. The renderings and colors are so 'real' and life-like that's easy to see why this lens cost more than other options.
