Sony Planar T* FE 50/1.4 ZA Rolling Review Aug 02, 2016
Sony Planar T* FE 50/1.4 ZA Rolling Review
I just received the FE 50/1.4 ZA this morning. After my initial decentering tests, I was happy to know that I have good copy in my hands. :)

I will be comparing resolution/contrast at close and infinity distances later on this thread, but for now, I wanted to focus on rendering and aberration control differences for the FE 50/1.4 ZA, FE 55/1.8 ZA and Loxia 50/2 lenses.
