Planar T* FE 1,4/50 ZA

Lens speed redefined.

The perfect all-round lens for any situation: with the new Planar T* FE 1,4/50ZA for full-frame E-mount cameras from Sony you will experience high quality throughout the entire frame right into the edges of the image – even at full aperture. Its angle of view corresponds to the perspective of the human eye. At the highest aperture setting it captures stunning images in portrait quality. The highest aperture setting of 1.4 enables attractive bokeh with a low depth of field and rises to the challenge every time – even in poor light. It is precisely in these situations that its advanced optical design – featuring aspheric elements and the legendary T*®antireflective coating – allows the lens to perform at its breathtaking best and deliver pictures that will astound you. The lens is additionally equipped with an aperture ring, permitting the aperture value to be set via the camera or directly on the lens. Autofocus or manual focus? The Planar T* FE 1,4/50 ZA features a fast-action focus switch for selecting whichever mode you require. Last but certainly not least, a Super Sonic Wave Ultrasonic Motor (SSM) ensures that you never lose any time when focusing. This also makes this standard lens ideal for free-hand photography, particularly in poor light.

  • Features

    Extremely Fast Sony alpha E-mount Full-Frame Lens

    A high speed lens gives you a huge amount of freedom in taking your photographs, as you can either make the most of available light, not having to worry about disturbing a moment with a flash, or create spectacular effects with a shallow depth of field or harmonious bokeh. 

    Versatile aperture settings

    Ideal for every use, for both photography and professional video shooting. With the de-click feature for the aperture function, you will handle unexpected changes in brightness and difficult lighting conditions seamlessly – simply with a switch directly on the lens. Every pan shot will be successful. In addition, you can use the aperture ring of the lens to preset the aperture just as you would do with special video lenses. Here as well, you will love the diverse and especially precise focusing options of the lens – manual as well as automatic. 

    Smooth, silent AF operation

    Design of the autofocus system requires extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. While this is normally achieved via mechanical coupling from the camera body, ZA lenses feature a built-in SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) focusing system for even more refined AF performance.

    Robust and weatherproof metal construction

    Its metal barrel and bayonet as well as elaborate protection against dust and spray make the lens perfect for shooting in demanding outdoor conditions – and also guarantee its constant readiness for many years of intensive use.

    Aspherical Lenses and Extra-low Dispersion Glass

    Compact yet extremely capable – ZEISS worked in close collaboration with Sony to create a high-precision lens, containing aspherical lenses as well as extra-low dispersion glass to ensure a portable size, while delivering exquisite image quality at the same time.
