The FE 50mm F1.2 GM uses Sony’s latest techniques including advanced optical simulation and manufacturing technology to deliver awe-inspiring G Master resolution and bokeh with a wide F1.2 aperture in a surprisingly compact and lightweight design.
Three XA (extreme aspherical) elements and Nano AR coating II contribute to high-contrast, high-resolution results with corner-to-corner sharpness and dramatically reduced chromatic and spherical aberration, flare and ghosting.
A floating focus mechanism ensures that full resolution is maintained throughout the image area from infinity to close focus. Despite its compact size and light weight, the FE 50mm F1.2 GM delivers incredible resolution and contrast from the image center right out to the corners.
The F1.2 max aperture allows you to isolate your subject from the foreground and background with amazing light gathering capabilities when shooting wide open. The unique combination of wide F1.2 aperture with 11 circular aperture blades and three XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements deliver on the G Master promise of ultra-sharp in-focus areas of your image with beautifully soft defocused bokeh.
The fast F1.2 aperture is not only good for shallow depth of field, but ideal for situations that require more light gathering capabilities like indoor, night and astral photography, making this lens perfect for any occasion.
The FE 50mm F1.2 GM incorporates three extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) elements - manufactured to 0.01-micron surface precision - in an innovative optical design that achieves awe-inspiring G Master resolution throughout the image area, while delivering smooth, creamy bokeh in out-of-focus areas.
Three XA elements compensate for coma, field curvature, and astigmatism, that can be problems with large-aperture optics. These elements also enable closer focusing distance and contribute to the compact and lightweight design.
