flare control: 5
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Other System 50mm F1.4|
|comment:||I bought it from the US and it has focus shift (Noticeable) and returned after I developed my two Slide films (was 3 months after receiving the lens!)|
once came back from Sony US Repair, it's Spot on. Very sharp but not contrasty wide open (Good contrast but not excessive). focuses fast and sure too, which I like the most. It's rendering is typical Planar with a little bite to it, very similar to the 85mm F1.4 Planar ZA.
Size for 50mm is on the big side of the scale :). But this is very good lens and to me one of the most useful on the Alpha lineup.
