The Sony 50mm f/1.2 G Master lens delivers excellent resolution, industry-leading AF capabilities and professional control and reliability in a compact and lightweight design. Digital Camera World’s Matthew Richards already called it a “sensational new nifty-fifty” in their review of the lens at its launch, and now in their latest post written by Ben Andrews, they declare it the best 50mm lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
“It’s official: Sony now has the best 50mm lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras!” – Ben Andrews, Digital Camera World
“In our hands, we reckon the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 G Master produces the best all-round optical performance, especially where it matters most – sharpness," writes Andrews. "But optical performance isn’t the only way in which Canon and Nikon are left playing catch-up to the new G Master. The Sony lens manages to produce these results while also being the smallest and lightest lens of the trio – by contrast, the Nikon Z 50mm 1.2 is a whole 42mm longer!”
In addition to outstanding optical performance, Andrews also notes the fair price compared to its counterparts. That’s not all, though. “Of course, optical performance and pricing aren't the only criteria that make a great lens. Build quality and handling, autofocus speed and responsiveness, lens coatings and plenty more attributes besides must also be considered, but our in-depth review finds the new Sony scores equally well in these respects.”
“Taking all these factors into account, we can’t help but rate the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 G Master as the very best super-fast 50mm prime for full-frame mirrorless cameras right now.”
