A Review of the Impressive Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM Lens

Few lenses are more versatile than a 50mm with a wide aperture, as it can competently tackle everything from low-light situations to portraits. The Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM offers some of the company's best features along with a very wide aperture, and this excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Anita Sadowska, this awesome video review takes a look at the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM lens. A professional-level lens that is part of the respected G Master series, the 50mm f/1.2 comes with a range of great features, including:

  • Three XA (extreme aspherical) elements for less distortion and spherical aberrations and better sharpness, even wide open
  • Nano AR Coating II for less flares and ghosting and better contrast 
  • Four XD Linear motors for faster and quieter autofocus
  • Linear Response manual focus control
  • Programmable Focus Hold button
  • De-clickable aperture ring
  • Dust- and moisture-sealing for working in extreme weather 
  • Fluorine front element coating to reduce fingerprints, moisture, and dust
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Altogether, the 50mm f/1.2 GM looks like quite the lens. Check out the video above for Sadowska's full thoughts.

I am not sure what this review had to say. The pictures look nice, but the Nikon and Canon will look nice to.
