ZM 50mm versus NEX 50mm by Björn Utpott.


Our reader Björn Utpott just sent me the link to his latest 50mm lens comparison (Click here to read it). The big question is: Is the new 50mm lens for NEX better than the “older” Zeiss ZM 50mm f/1.4 lens? The answer is pretty easy, the lenses have been designed for completely different kind if use. The Sonnar ZM has a more old creamy look with sharp center and less sharper borders. The new Sony 50mm is sharp through all the frame.
