Introducing the Sony FE 50mm f/1.4 GM

Sony’s latest lens technology delivers extraordinary resolution and bokeh in a compact, lightweight lens. Extraordinary AF, smooth operability, and rugged reliability add the finishing touches to this innovative large-aperture standard prime lens.

Key Features:

  • Full-Frame | f/1.4 to f/22

  • G-Master Design with Advanced Optics

  • Two XD Linear AF Motors, Internal Focus

  • Focus Hold Buttons & Iris Lock Switch

  • Physical Aperture Ring & De-Click Switch

  • Rounded 11-Blade Diaphragm

Two high-precision XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements effectively correct distortion and most types of aberration. This new optical design also employs an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element to suppress chromatic aberration. With Sony's original Nano AR Coating II on lens surfaces, internal reflections that can cause flare and ghosting are dramatically reduced.

Innovative optics and an F1.4 maximum aperture combine to deliver magnificent bokeh. Smooth, naturally defocused background and foreground bokeh at F1.4 are ideal for making portrait subjects stand out from their surroundings. Advanced features that contribute to superb bokeh quality include XA (extreme aspherical) elements that effectively prevent onion-ring bokeh, and carefully controlled spherical aberration during design and manufacture.

The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants that do become attached to the lens surface. A dust and moisture resistant design provides extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
