Sony-Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 SSM Planar

Available Today

The Sony-Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 ZA SSM Planar is a fast aperture normal range prime lens for Sony A-mount cameras. Notable features include:

  • Full-Frame Compatible: Designed with a full-frame sensor in mind, the SZ 50mm f/1.4 offers stellar full-frame coverage, but can be used just as well on a crop-frame camera body as a 75mm focal length.
  • Carl Zeiss Optics: Optically speaking, this is the lens Sony shooters have been anticipating. Based on the planar design, it features two glass-molded aspherical elements and an ED element to provide the highest image quality possible with minimal optical aberrations. It offers a virtually flat plane of focus with great edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination, as well as the high micro-contrast Zeiss lenses are known to produce.
  • Autofocus: With its built-in SSM motor, fast, it provides fast, silent autofocus performance when shooting. Using a rear-focusing design, the exterior dimensions of the lens remain unchanged, allowing uninhibited filter use. It’s DMF compatible, enabling quick manual fine tuning using the smooth MF ring, and the focus hold button allows you to hold focus via the lens rather than relying on the camera’s shutter button.
  • Build Quality: The sturdy, aluminum alloy barrel construction provides strong durability under heavy use, with dust and moisture-resistant weather sealing to provide protection from the elements.
  • Common Uses: The 50mm focal length is great for just about any type of photography. The fast f/1.4 aperture of the Sony Zeiss is great for shooting in low-light, as well as isolating your subject from the background when shooting portraits.
