Sony FE 50mm F1.2 GM

New speed and resolution in an F1.2 lens

This 50mm F1.2 G Master prime lens is a creator’s dream, with an F1.2 maximum aperture that not only allows shooting in a wider range of lighting conditions, but also provides an extraordinary combination of high resolution, luscious G Master bokeh, and blazing autofocus. It is also remarkably compact and lightweight, for new creative freedom.

Spectacularly fast, sharp 50mm at F1.2

G Master resolution without compromise

The compact, lightweight FE 50mm F1.2 GM is an ideal choice for dedicated creators. XA (extreme aspherical) elements and other advanced technologies combine to achieve extraordinary resolution and contrast from the image center right out to the edges. Sony’s Nano AR Coating II subdues flare and ghosting, while a floating focus mechanism ensures optimum sharpness at any focusing distance.

Smooth, refined G Master bokeh

XA elements plus painstaking spherical aberration control at the design and manufacturing stages contribute to gorgeous G Master bokeh that can really make portraits 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, precise, quiet AF and tracking

Fast, accurate focus is assured, even with an extremely shallow 50mm F1.2 depth of field. Four XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors smoothly delivers 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.

Professional mobility

87 mm (3-1/2 in.) in diameter, 108 mm (4-3/8 in.) long, and weighing just 778 grams (27.5 oz.), the FE 50mm F1.2 GM complements compact, high-performance E-mount bodies to create a system that gives serious shooters the mobility and handling. Three XA elements and four XD Linear Motors in a large-aperture lens that is surprisingly compact offer extraordinary creative potential.

Professional control and reliability

Two focus hold buttons, a focus mode switch, a focus ring, an aperture ring with switchable click stops and other controls support 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.
