New patent discloses a new Sony 50mm f/1.2 and f/1.4 fast lens!


The Japanese blog Egami found a new Sony patent that describes the characteristics for two new standard lenses. A new 50mm f/1.2 and a new 50mm f/1.4 fullframe lens. Those are the specs:

  • Patent Publication No. 2011-107450
    • Published 2011.6.2
    • Filled 2009.11.18
  • Embodiment 1
    • Focal distance f=49.98mm
    • Fno=1.442
    • Half angle of view 23.73 deg.
    • Asph. 1
  • Embodiment 2
    • Focal distance f=51.54mm
    • Fno=1.443
    • Half angle of view 23.17 deg.
    • Asph. 0

    • Focal distance f=51.55mm
    • Fno=1.233

I guess that those would be welcomed updated of the current 50mm f/1.4 from Sony. Check the specs and price of that lens by clicking those direct links: [shopcountry 7134]. A new and well praised alternative is the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 which you can get at [shopcountry 6765].
