Sony 50mm f/1.4 ( SAL-50F14 ) - Review / Test Report

31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Sony 50mm f/1.4 is a typical representative of the standard lenses that were designed back in the 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 aberrations (LoCA). The image quality is already vastly improved at f/2 including a technically better (smoother) bokeh. The truly excellent peak performance is reached around f/4.
