The FE 50mm F2.5 G lens has clear advantages for moviemaking. With a standard 50mm angle of view on full frame bodies and 75mm on APS-C bodies or Super 35mm cameras, dual linear motors for fast, precise autofocus and tracking, a bright F2.5 maximum aperture for beautifully defocused background bokeh, excellent close-up performance and a class leading ultra-compact and lightweight design, this lens is ideal for all types of content creators. In addition to the super small size and light weight, its internal focus design makes it convenient for use on compact gimbals or grips for vlogging and other applications.
The FE 50mm F2.5 G incorporates an ED glass element to suppress chromatic aberration and effectively reduces color fringing that is more likely to occur in the image periphery, leaving precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration, while significantly reducing flare and ghosting.
While conventional aperture blades have flat sides that create unappealing, polygonal-shaped defocused points of light, the FE 50mm F2.5 G incorporates a 7-blade circular aperture mechanism to maximizes the beauty of this large-aperture prime-lens. The wide f2.5 aperture and circular aperture blades contribute to impressive images in which the subject stands out against a smoothly defocused foreground and background, as well as perfectly round points of defocused light.
The high-quality G Lens optical design incorporates two aspherical lens elements for sharp detail and one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that reduces chromatic aberration for outstanding corner-to-corner resolution. In addition, the state-of-the-art optical design takes maximum advantage of the short flange back, unique to mirrorless cameras, to realize stunning compactness at 68mm diameter x 45mm and a weight of only 174g. Mobility is a key feature, preserving the compactness of the overall E-mount system whether shooting with a full-frame or APS-C body or shooting either still images or movie.
