Lightweight and compact 50mm F1.4 G Master™ prime
Sony’s latest lens technology delivers extraordinary resolution and bokeh in a compact, lightweight lens. Extraordinary AF, smooth operability, and rugged reliability add the finishing touches to this innovative large-aperture standard prime lens.
Breathtaking G Master quality right out to the image edges
Innovative optics and an F1.4 aperture deliver magnificent bokeh
Innovative optics and an F1.4 maximum aperture combine to deliver magnificent bokeh. Smooth, naturally defocused background and foreground bokeh at F1.4 are ideal for making portrait subjects stand out from their surroundings. Advanced features that contribute to superb bokeh quality include XA (extreme aspherical) elements that effectively prevent onion-ring bokeh, and carefully controlled spherical aberration during design and manufacture.
A lightweight and compact lens with incredible performance
XA (extreme aspherical) elements precisely positioned in an innovative design, high-thrust XD linear motors, and the latest compact circular aperture unit work together in a large-aperture high-resolution lens hat is only 3.17” (80.6 mm) in outer diameter and 3.78” (96.0 mm) in length while weighing just 18.23 oz (516 grams). A unique blend of mobility and low-light performance make it an ideal choice for everything from portraits to snapshots.
Fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking for stills and movies
The lens’s focus group is driven by our high-thrust XD (extreme dynamic) linear motors and an advanced control algorithm for smooth, responsive focus drive. Noise and vibration are minimized for refined, quiet AF operation that can be a huge advantage when shooting movies. Movie subjects are smoothly captured and tracked even when shooting at 120 fps or other high frame rates.
Intuitive operation supports the creator's vision
Linear Response MF provides manual focusing response that rivals mechanical lenses, and is more than responsive enough to produce smooth rack focus for movies. An iris lock switch can be locked so that the aperture ring can be fixed at the “A” position to prevent unwanted changes, or manually set from F1.4 to F16. Two customizable focus. hold buttons and an AF/MF focus mode switch provide extra shooting versatility.
Outstanding reliability for any environment and application
The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants that do become attached to the lens surface. A dust and moisture resistant design3 provides extra reliability for outdoor use in challenging conditions.

Stunning images from a lightweight and compact lens
Sony’s latest lens technology delivers extraordinary resolution and bokeh in a compact, lightweight 50 mm lens. With outstanding image-wide resolution and contrast from F1.4, this fast, responsive lens offers sharp realism for stills and movies that will satisfy users from advanced amateurs to the most discerning professionals.
G Master™ quality right out to the edges
wo high-precision XA (extreme aspherical) elements effectively correct distortion and most types of aberration so that high resolution is achieved right out to the image edges. This new optical design also employs an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element to suppress chromatic aberration so that images are clear and sharp without color bleeding.
Unrivaled G Master bokeh
Innovative optics and an F1.4 maximum aperture deliver magnificent bokeh. XA (extreme aspherical) elements prevent onion-ring bokeh, while spherical aberration optimization during design and manufacture contributes to beautiful bokeh with reduced color bleeding. An 11-blade circular aperture produces beautiful bokeh at maximum aperture.
