I can honestly say that the Sony Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA was the best 50mm lens I have ever used by a long shot, but I tested it before the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM came out, which has been met with nothing but rave reviews. How do these two superstar lenses compare? Check out this great video to see.
Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this awesome video review compares two superlative 50mm lenses, the Sony Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA and the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM. I have never been particularly fond of the 50mm focal length, but when I tested the Sony lens a few years ago, it was the first time I felt inspired using such a lens. The rendering was so impressively clean, contrasty, and sharp that it was addicting. Canon's 50mm f1/2.L has been receiving similar praise for its top optical quality, and it may just best the Sony lens. And while I personally do not use the 50mm focal length a lot, it is a highly versatile and useful option for a variety of genres, and the extra-wide apertures on both lenses make them great for low-light work as well. Check out the video above for Trotti's full thoughts.
