Sony 50mm f/1.4 ZA: Examples in Hall Natural Area at Dusk

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

While Sony IBIS (SteadyShot) can damage image sharpness, handheld shooting at dusk can be a huge win, as with all these handheld examples.

Sony 50mm f/1.4 ZA Field Examples: Hall Natural Area, Dusk (Sony A7R II)

Examples at sizes up to 28 megapixels. Examples are almost all at f/1.4, shot handheld with IBIS, and give a vey good idea of what the Sony 50/1.4 ZA can do out in the field.

The about $1498 Sony Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA looks to be a winner, with high sharpness and micro contrast wide open coupled to gorgeous bokeh. Its only downside is size and weight as compared to the Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar and/or the Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 Sonnar.

UPDATE (later in the day): I’ve added another half dozen or so examples.
