DxO tests the new Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 FE: “Outstanding sharpness”

Share

DxOmark tested the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 FE lens and unsurprisingly it is the sharpest lens in the 50mm FE range:

If it’s outstanding low-light performance, first-class sharpness at very wide apertures, and snappy autofocus that you desire in an FE-mount 50mm lens, the Zeiss FE 50mm f/1.4 is unrivaled and an excellent choice for the discerning Sony a7 series owner.

Highlights

  • Outstanding sharpness
  • Excellent light transmission
  • SSW autofocus motor
  • Wide f/1.4 maximum aperture
  • AF/MF switch and large manual focus ring
  • Physical aperture ring with “de-click” option for video

Drawbacks

  • Heavy vignetting at f/1.4
  • Big and heavy

But still, the 55mm FE scores a tiny better result at DxO. It’s just as sharp and costs much less.

If you don’t need that extra speed or de-click option go for the 55mm lens!
