Key Features

Outstanding colour and contrast

Outstanding colour and contrast

ZEISS lenses are renowned for their outstanding colour reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced colour and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.

Elegant exterior appearance and feel

Elegant exterior appearance and feel

The exterior of this classy lens features a high-quality black-finished aluminium that provides an ideal blend of scratch-resistant hardness and elegant visual appeal. It feels good to the touch too, adding to the satisfaction of owning and using this fine lens.

Dust and moisture resistant design

Dust and moisture resistant design

All critical joints and seams are sealed against the intrusion of dust and moisture to the same degree as the a99 and a77 II bodies, providing an extra margin of reliability for outdoor use.

A fast 50mm prime refined to perfection

A fast 50mm prime refined to perfection

ZEISS lenses are known for their superior sharpness, contrast, and well-defined blacks, and the SAL50F14Z represents the peak of refinement in all of the above. The 50mm "normal" lens is often the best performer in any prime lens lineup. This fine example is no exception, making it a perfect choice for a high-performance lens collection.

Planar design minimizes distortion

Planar design minimizes distortion

A refined version of the legendary ZEISS Planar optical configuration with two precision aspherical elements delivers superb sharpness and contrast throughout the image area at all apertures, with an absolute minimum of distortion and aberration. This lens is capable of capturing images with remarkable depth and realism.

Smooth, quiet SSM focusing

Smooth, quiet SSM focusing

Smooth, silent operation and speed are essential for stress-free autofocus. Sony's SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system offers outstanding autofocus performance, while direct manual focus capability and a focus hold button enhance overall focusing control.

From ZEISS sharp to smooth bokeh

From ZEISS sharp to smooth bokeh

ZEISS quality extends from exceptional clarity to gorgeous background bokeh that can make in-focus subjects really stand out. A 9-blade circular aperture works with this lens's F1.4 maximum aperture to produce beautifully smooth defocusing effects with natural highlights when desired.
