Photos Taken with a Sony 50mm ƒ/1.4 ZA Prime Lens on a Sony a7 iii
The Sony 50mm ƒ/1.4 ZA lens is one of Sony’s high-end lenses. On full-frame sensors it offers a normal perspective and is especially good for low-light and selective focus shooting. Here are some sample photos I’ve taken with it.
I’ve recently been shooting with the Sony 50mm ƒ/1.4 ZA prime lens (on the new Sony a7iii body). I’m posting a more detailed review separately, but here are some sample images I’ve taken with it to give a bit of a sense of the results in real-world shooting.
But firstly, a quick summary of some of its key features. This is one of the higher-end Sony primes. Its formal name is the Sony Planar T* FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA Lens. It’s an E-mount lens designed for Sony full-frame sensors. And it’s fast, with a maximum aperture of ƒ/1.4 that makes it especially good for low-light shooting or when you’re after a very shallow depth of field. It’s constructed in such a way to make it somewhat resistant to moisture and dust. And it uses high-quality Zeiss optics.
I’ve also posted some shots taken with Sony’s 35mm ƒ/1.4 ZA prime, which you can find here.

These were all taken on a Sony a7 iii. They were minimally processed in Lightroom, but I haven’t applied any extra sharpening or any of the lens profile corrections such as distortion correction or chromatic aberration.
