Sony Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA Examples at f/1.4 + Color Correction Evaluation

Sony Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA

See my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

Laying the groundwork prior to field shooting, I’ve evaluated the secondary color correction of the Sony Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA:

Sony 50mm f/1.4 ZA: Evaluation of Secondary Color: Chrome Grating (Sony A7R II)

Also I’ve published a variety of examples at f/1.4 to explore the performance bounds.

Peripheral forward focus shift is confirmed as seen in the dolls shootout. The behavior is similar to that seen with the Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM.

The Sony Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA is an excellent performer in native mount with autofocus well worth considering. Later this month after field shooting with several other 50mm lenses, I’ll have some solid perspective to offer on all aspects of its performance.
