omg! - Sony 50/1.4
Aug 4, 2008

Just recently (1.5 week ago) i bought the Sony 50/1.4

a little expensive ( 560$ ) but worth the pennies !

Images are razor sharp from f2.8 and up, and very sharp at f2 !
the bokeh is nice and smooth.

below f2, shiny edges get a little soft and mushy (soft image) as expected...

I really like that the front element doesn't rotate !! makes it possible to use a polarizer ...

50mm @ APSC is purhaps too much tele for my taste of shooting, but for portraits, close-ups and whatever you use a 75mm for, its terrific !!

Maybe ill get a Sigma 30mm/1.4 or something similar/better too

Damn... im getting more and more happy about this lens, every time i see the quality !

ill post some shots as soon as i have some non-testing ones
