Sony 50mm GM f1.2 Lens Hire
Sony 50mm GM f1.2 Lens Summary:
New speed and resolution in an F1.2 lens
This 50mm F1.2 G Master prime lens is a creator’s dream, with an F1.2 maximum aperture that not only allows shooting in a wider range of lighting conditions, but also provides an extraordinary combination of high resolution, luscious G Master bokeh, and blazing autofocus. It is also remarkably compact and lightweight, for new creative freedom.
G Master resolution without compromise
The compact, lightweight FE 50mm F1.2 GM is an ideal choice for dedicated creators. XA (extreme aspherical) elements and other advanced technologies combine to achieve extraordinary resolution and contrast from the image center right out to the edges. Sony’s Nano AR Coating II subdues flare and ghosting, while a floating focus mechanism ensure optimum sharpness at any focusing distance.
Smooth, refined G Master bokeh
XA elements plus painstaking spherical aberration control at the design and manufacturing stages contribute to gorgeous G Master bokeh that can really make portrait and other subjects stand out, especially with the shallow depth of field available at the lens’s maximum F1.2 aperture. An 11-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to beautifully circular bokeh.
Fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking
Fast, accurate focus is assured, even with extremely shallow 50mm F1.2 depth of field. Four XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors smoothly deliver high thrust to position the large, heavy focus groups for fast, accurate AF. Original Sony E-mount lens technology ensures that you get maximum performance from E-mount bodies, for both stills and movies.
87 mm (3-1/2 in.) in diameter, 108 mm (4-3/8 in.) long, and weighing just 778 grams (27.5 oz.), the FE 50mm F1.2 GM complements compact, high-performance E-mount bodies to create a system that gives serious shooters the mobility and handling. Three XA elements and four XD Linear Motors in a large-aperture lens that is surprisingly compact offer extraordinary creative potential.
Professional control and reliability
Two focus hold buttons, a focus mode switch, a focus ring, an aperture ring with switchable click stops and other controls support smooth operation. The focus hold buttons can be assigned to other functions via a camera menu. Linear Response MF ensures that the focus ring responds linearly to manual focus control. Effective dust and moisture resistance and a fluorine front element coating enhance reliability.
Nano AR Coating II ensures clear images in backlit scenes
Sony’s Nano AR Coating II helps to achieve clear, well-defined images even in strong sunlight and backlighting. This advanced coating is evenly applied to entire element surfaces, effectively minimizing internal reflections so that flare and ghosting do not occur.
Bokeh-enhancing 11-blade circular aperture
A new 11-blade circular aperture mechanism contributes to beautiful bokeh. Circular highlights are exquisitely rendered too, further enhancing the widely acclaimed beauty of G Master bokeh. Out-of-focus backgrounds are smoother and more pleasing in just about any situation and lighting.
Customizable focus hold button and more for advanced control
Focus hold buttons located on the top and side of the lens can be assigned to a number of other functions via a camera body menu, providing direct access to functions that are vital to the user’s personal workflow, including right/left eye selection for Eye AF on bodies that support that feature.
Aperture ring with click on/off switch
An aperture ring is also provided for direct, intuitive aperture control. A handy switch allows the aperture ring click stops to be turned off for quiet movie shooting.
Dust and moisture resistant design
A dust and moisture resistant design2 provides the reliability needed for outdoor use in challenging conditions.
Fluorine front element coating
The front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels water, oil, and other contaminants, while making it easier to wipe off any contaminants or fingerprints that do become attached to the lens surface.
