As an ideal choice for dedicated creators, the Sony FE 50mm F1.2 GM Lens is characterized by its speed and relatively compact form factor and features XA (extreme aspherical) elements and other advanced technologies combine to achieve extraordinary resolution and contrast from the image centre right out to the edges.
This versatile focal length suits shooting everything from street, portraiture, and landscape to documentary subjects, and the fast-maximum aperture excels in low light and controlling depth of field.
The combination of the lens's remarkable maximum f/1.2 aperture and 11-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to the gorgeous G Master bokeh that really makes portrait and other subjects stand out. Three XA (eXtreme Aspherical) elements provide excellent spherical aberration control by reducing a variety of aberrations, colour fringing, and distortion.
Sony’s Nano AR Coating II subdues flare and ghosting, while a floating focus mechanism ensures optimum sharpness at any focusing distance. Balancing the optics is an XD Linear Motor system that uses four separate focusing motors to deliver especially quiet, precise, and quick autofocus performance. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design and fluorine-coated front lens element to support shooting in inclement conditions.

XA elements plus painstaking spherical aberration control at the design and manufacturing stages contribute to gorgeous G Master bokeh that can really make a portrait and other subjects stand out, especially with the shallow depth of field available at the lens’s maximum F1.2 aperture. An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to beautifully circular bokeh.
Fast, accurate focus is assured, even with extremely shallow 50mm F1.2 depth of field. Four XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors smoothly deliver high thrust to position the large, heavy focus groups for fast, accurate AF. Original Sony E-mount lens technology ensures that you get maximum performance from E-mount bodies, for both stills and movies.
Two focus hold buttons, a focus mode switch, a focus ring, an aperture ring with switchable click stops and other controls support the smooth operation. The focus hold buttons can be assigned to other functions via a camera menu. Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds linearly to manual focus control. Effective dust and moisture resistance1 and a fluorine front element coating enhance reliability.
