Uncompromising Performance

The Sony Zeiss Planar T* 50 mm brings incredibly high resolution, razor sharp performance to the Sony E mount System. Combining the distinctive rendering of Zeiss optics with a Planar lens design keeps lens distortion at a minimum and sharpness consistent across the entire image. The lens is perfectly suited for photographers and videographers who demand the best gear for their creative vision.

F1.4 Aperture

Boasting a bright F1.4 maximum aperture with an increased 11-blade design enables the lens to create stunning bokeh and perform incredibly well in demanding low light situations. The shallow depth of field easily separates the foreground from the background perfect for adding another dimension to portrait photography.

Cutting Edge Optical System

The lens uses 12 premium quality elements arranged in 9 groups to capture tack sharp images and reduce chromatic aberrations. The groups include Advanced Aspherical and Extra-Low Dispersion optical elements to ensure you can capture sharp high resolution images.

Designed for Full Frame Sensors

Created in a partnership between Sony and the highly regarded optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss the Planar 50mm F1.4 lens is designed to be compatible with Sony APS-C size cameras and fully optimised to take advantage of the 35mm Full Frame FE mount camera series.

T* Coating

Zeiss employ their famous T* coating on the lens elements to ensure increased light transmission for brighter images. This patented treatment reduces flare and increases contrast in lenses providing the highest image quality for portraits, night time shots or action shots.

Rugged Weather Resistant Design

Robust weather resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture, which can potentially damage high quality optical gear, allowing for greater flexibility when shooting in less than ideal conditions.

Modern Silent Autofocus

Combining lighting fast focus with silent operation the advanced Super Sonic Wave Motor makes this lens a great match for more than just portrait photographers. Wedding shooters will benefit from the ability to capture sharp fleeting moments and videographers can easily film video footage without worrying about what the on-board camera mic will record.

Optimised Aperture Ring for Stills and Video

The de-clickable aperture control ring grants videographers precise control over their exposure while still providing an option for photographers who prefer a more tactile aperture control. The Sony Zeiss T* 50mm Planar ZA features an easily accessible switch to toggle between Auto and Manual focus modes making it the perfect lens regardless of your shooting style.
