I had the same observation with the one that I rented. I found it to be quite a bit slower than my batis 85 and it felt relatively noisy. I'm curious to try a few other ones to see if it's the same. I have to admit the image quality was excellent though. I was also shooting indoors for a wedding, never got to see what the af speed was like out in the sun.

Hi everyone, I just got a copy of this great lens a few days ago, but I've noticed the AF speed is a bit slower than both of my Batis, and relatively much louder (both Batis are silent). Does it present as a general behavior for this lens? I saw some reviews stated its AF is "quite and fast" but some videos I found online suggested similar noise. Thanks!

Thanks for replying. I think based on my research online it's normal, I feel the focus could be fixed since in AF-C mode it focuses faster and also doesn't present the wobbling behavior.

Has anyone else run into a problem with EXIF from their a7rII after using the FE 50? Someone on flickr pointed out that all of my recent shots I posted, mostly from adapted lenses, now have the 50 in the EXIF.


Well, it was either outdated firmware (I thought I had upgraded it at the same time I did the 7II I was putting up for sale, but I only downloaded it) or a LR update, but the problem's gone now.

It's definitely slower when compared to the 55/1.8 ZA and just as noisy as my FE 85/1.4GM. It's also easier to focus with the 55/1.8 ZA in low light since the aperture opens to f/2 to achieve focus whereas with the 50/1.4 ZA focuses at or very close to shooting aperture.

Does anyone have a big problem with flare? Like are you force to always used the hood or is it a normal amount of flare?
