Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA

Sony SEL50F14Z

Features

  • A refined double-gauss design incorporating two aspherical elements, including one precision AA (advanced aspherical) element, works with an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to suppress field curvature and distortion while maintaining outstanding image-wide resolution and contrast from the widest aperture at any focusing distance.
  • The F1.4 maximum aperture can be used to create images with shallow depth of field and smooth, beautiful bokeh. A bright maximum aperture like this also makes it possible to shoot at high shutter speeds in low lighting. Of course the lens can be stopped down to create extended depth of field when required.
  • Although Sony's circular aperture design usually employs up to 9 blades, this lens incorporates 11 blades that take bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty. Natural-looking highlights in the out-of-focus areas enhance overall atmosphere while providing a gentle sense of depth.
  • ZEISS lenses are renowned for their outstanding color reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS T* Coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced color and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.

Breathtaking resolution and contrast A refined double-gauss design incorporating two aspherical elements, including one precision AA (advanced aspherical) element, works with an ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to suppress field curvature and distortion while maintaining outstanding image-wide resolution and contrast from the widest aperture at any focusing distance.

F1.4 for versatility and beautiful bokeh The F1.4 maximum aperture can be used to create images with shallow depth of field and smooth, beautiful bokeh. A bright maximum aperture like this also makes it possible to shoot at high shutter speeds in low lighting. Of course the lens can be stopped down to create extended depth of field when required.

11 blades for natural bokeh highlights Although Sony's circular aperture design usually employs up to 9 blades, this lens incorporates 11 blades that take bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty. Natural-looking highlights in the out-of-focus areas enhance overall atmosphere while providing a gentle sense of depth.

Excellent color and contrast ZEISS lenses are renowned for their outstanding color reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS T* Coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced color and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.

Autofocus that supports high resolution Focus drive is handled by a ring drive SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system that is capable of positioning the heavy focus group required by large aperture lenses with speed and precision. Fast, accurate focus is essential to bring out the full performance potential of high-resolution camera bodies, whether you're shooting stills or movies.

Convenient fingertip control A physical aperture ring allows intuitive aperture control. An aperture click switch makes it possible to enable or disable the aperture ring click stops as required. Moviemakers will want the clicks OFF, while photographers often prefer tactile click feedback. There's also a focus mode switch for convenient manual/autofocus selection.

Reliable in challenging conditions A sealed dust and moisture-resistant design provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.* *Although the design is dust and moisture-resistant, absolute protection from dust and moisture is not guaranteed.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

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.
