Planar T* 50 mm F1.4 ZA SSM

Sony SAL50F14Z

Features

  • ZEISS® lenses are known for their superior sharpness, contrast, and well-defined blacks, and the SAL50F14Z represents the peak of refinement in all of the above. The 50 mm "normal" lens is often the best performer in any prime lens lineup. This fine example is no exception, making it a perfect choice for a high-performance lens collection.
  • A refined version of the legendary ZEISS® Planar optical configuration with two precision aspherical elements delivers superb sharpness and contrast throughout the image area at all apertures, with an absolute minimum of distortion and aberration. This lens is capable of capturing images with remarkable depth and realism.
  • Smooth, silent operation and speed are essential for stress-free autofocus. Sony's SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system offers outstanding autofocus performance, while direct manual focus capability and a focus hold button enhance overall focusing control.
  • ZEISS® quality extends from exceptional clarity to gorgeous background bokeh that can make in-focus subjects really stand out. A 9-blade circular aperture works with this lens's F1.4 maximum aperture to produce beautifully smooth defocusing effects with natural highlights when desired.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
