Hmm, thanks for the answers! Thinking about grabbing a 1.4 as well. Feels like it could go either way. I first bought back into Sony for the small travel gear. Now I'm switching gears a bit towards the G-master line for quality and not worrying "so" much about weight.
But as we all know, size and weight can and does make a difference when packing up.
Nice to hear your thoughts. Thank you.


Yes, I think the best way to do it is to compare them personally. There are comparisons on youtube but the conclusion is still highly personal ...

I ended up getting both. I really like both of them. I'm thinking I'll certainly use the 1.4 for the vast majority of my 50mm AF needs. But I love the 1.2 wide open too, it's got that little something extra. At 1.4 mine look basically identical. I've only had them for a week or so and haven't shot them enough to make a good decision.
I did shoot them side by side the other day, the only advantage was the additional blur.
I will say that after reading all the reviews, they made it seem like there's just no way to make the lens flare. I mean, it's well controlled, but if you shoot into the sun you can still find it.

I did a quick comparison between the 1.2 and 1.4 GM. Mostly for bokeh and sharpness. Here's a link to the flickr folder if anyone's interested:

I converted from RAW in LR without any edits added.

Thanks for that comparison, Matt. Really good. I prefer the 50/1.2 in each of the examples, even when both are at f2. I have the 50/1.2 and have been considering the 50/1.4 for travel. I may just carry the 50/1.2 and deal with the size and weight. The image quality of this lens is always so good.

YW, I agree the 1.2 is an AMAZING optic and think for now I'll keep both.

For me the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM is a keeper.
I am constantly amazed by the results it delivers at any aperture.
This lens stands out of my many other 50-ish lenses of Sony, Nikon, and Leica variety.

Both are amazing for their size and weight, punching well above Canikon. While I can see the difference between the two GMs, in real shooting situations, I believe they are the same at the same apertures. Essentially you are trading weight size for f/1.2 and faster AF. I mainly shoot at f/1.2 and at time, I feel that is not even enough .

From a recent memorial for a cousin who passed away 10 years ago. We sent up balloons with notes to him and this image is one of my favorites.

One of those things where I couldn’t say no to the request, even though I had no idea what I was doing. But also more fun than I anticipated. So, stumbled onto this result…

Best to all.

Thank you mudlake, great image.
The cute little girl holding securely her ballon makes the image for me.

Thanks to those of you who kindly responded to my "baby picture". It was pretty good fun. The average age between the two of us is very close to 40!

If I see any more newborns around town, I might offer them my card...
