Zeiss 50mm f1.4 ZA SSM
Jun 23, 2013

Shot yesterday with both the new Zeiss 50mm f1.4 ZA SSM and Zeiss 135mm f1.8

Zeiss 50mm f1.4 ZA SSM when all the reviews come in will probably be the Sharpest 50mm currently being made. Even wide OPEN at f1.4.

It AF very fast on the a99 ... it is the lens that makes the a99 SING !

Peaking in the EVF and f1.4 lens are made for each other.  I just got to get used to it

7 shots uploaded to DPR ... 4 at f1.4 ... the 5th is at f1.6 probably because I moved the wheel by accident. I shot a LOT at f1.4 at yesterdays Ritz Carlton Waikiki Residence event that was Uploaded to the Web LIVE to 3 world wide markets. Sold over 50% of the residences ... and the lowest price was us$600,000.00. (my guess is that was a studio)

Shot JPG + RAW ... the JPG uploaded live and SDs kept as back up. These shots are from the RAW.

imho, this 50mm f1.4 has a better AF w/ a99 than the Nikon 24mm f1.4 on a D800 more accurate and FAST. and when the Reviews come out my guess is it will be the SHARPEST 50mm made , even wide OPEN f1.4. I used the shoot with the OLY 50mm f2.

The size makes the Nikon 50mm f1.4 look wimpy.

Hope this helps someone  ...  you will NOT go wrong buying this lens on a a99

IF  SONY  makes THIS PRO "Weather Sealed" Metal body 50mm f1.4  the STANDARD  by which ALL there Future PRO weather Sealed lens are to be made   ...    And they ship a PDAF/CDAF 36+mp Low Noise NO-AA  Sensor  ... they need to think  100%  increase in LENS sales in 2014.
