The Sony 50mm f/1.4 is a typical representative of the standard lenses that were designed back in the 70s to 80s. The max. aperture (f/1.4) should be generally avoided due to weak contrast, poor borders and a significant amount of longitudinal chromatic aberrations (LoCA).
Let me help out the novice like me-Great if you need the 1.4 for night or video. Also great if compared to kit lens. As for comparing it to the sony 16-50 2.8- the 2.8 wins hands down for speed color and color fringing .
I didn't realize how much I would like a 50 mm lens until I bought one. I don't use it at its 1.4 aperture but everything else gives me a nice sharp picture. I use it on an A7 with the Sony adapter and it's great.
I'm still amateur and have yet to put this lens to a full capability test, but I'm quite impressed already. To get a good lens doing 1.4 for this price is just amazing. I have no complaints.
Nice bokeh and beautiful clear quality
50mm fixed means you can't be near many subjects
This is the third lens I bought for my Sony Alpha, and by far my favorite. I am an amateur photographer trying to go pro, and this lens will be with me for a long time. I did a ton of research before I purchased it, and could not be happier with my decision.
