Pros: Construction, size, weight, yield

Cons: Minimum focus distance, price

Opinion: Great lens: crisp, precise, quiet and fast. The price is quite expensive for a 1.8, but the yield is very good. I chose it as small and light, otherwise I would have opted for the 50 1.4 ZA, which has an extra gear but is a bulky boulder. I use it on A7III and overall I am very satisfied with the purchase.

Pros: bokeh, sharpness, colors, fast and precise af, construction, compactness

Cons: price, minimum focus distance

Opinion: A lens that At first I underestimated, using it little (I'm not one from 50ini but more from 85mm) but then I re-evaluated in an extremely positive way. Sharp already at full opening, very light but built very well, it is a fantastic handyman, if I had to go out with a single lens would be this. The color yield is fantastic, it suffers a thread of full-open aberrations but nothing unsolvable, and the full-opening sharpness is slightly lower than the Samyang 50mm F1.4 or Sigma, but there is always talk of excellent sharpness and it is a compromise to which you have to go meeting given the size practically halved compared to the little brothers. the minimum distance of focus is unfortunately a distant thread, but here it is the quality of the bokeh that dominates: it is a poetic, modern optics and that for portraits or for the street is perfect, has character and a great detachment of the floors despite being a 1.8 does not make me regret most of the 1.4. I read that some people were disappointed by the construction, but I don't see how: it's all metal, the lampshade is also partly metal and partly rubber to absorb the bumps, the focus dial is precise and the design on my own is excellent. A lens that is not "perfect" but that you can fall in love with, absolutely recommended

Pros: Sharpness, blurry, colors, af, light and compact, construction...

Cons: Price?

Opinion: A lens that you love or hate. I personally, left the initial skeptics and trying it on the field, I'm adoring it so much that the 85 FE for the kind of shots I prefer stays locked in the backpack since I bought this 55 :D Focal in my opinion ideal for portraits set or semi-set, whole bodies and half busts with excellent sharpness already at 1.8 that closing slightly (and here I steal the term used in another review because I particularly liked) becomes 'moving'. Excellent rendering of colors and backlight but graphics and technicalities I leave them to the most experienced. I really like the blurring and the "detachment" although it clearly depends on light and background. Af fast and silent. I preferred it to that boulder of Sigma Art despite the price lined up (except offers) because of the small size and the reduced weight sacrificing a little brightness. Let's talk about the price: it's true, 800-900 euros are quite especially if you think it's "only" a 1.8 and maybe I would never have spent them but I found on Amazon an attractive and including cashback offer cost me in total about 540 euros, clearly new. In my opinion even if the quality there is all the "right" price is between 500/600 but I would have been satisfied even if I had bought it in full :)

Pros: Sharpness, light weight, little footprint, high-performance focus, colors

Cons: none, except the price a little high, but indeed like all top optics :-)

Opinion: Big 50ino, which has nothing to envy to the various sigma art except their bokeh and blur to f1.4. The 55 zeiss sonnar f1.8 is an optic that has an incredible sharpness and chromatic rendering, a focus that never misses a beat, even in situations of little light. Unlike many similar optics, it does not suffer from back-front focus and never needs to be calibrated, with ring adapter you can safely mount screw filters from 77-82mm. Definitely a lens that for a sony user should never miss in the backpack!

Pros: Remarkable sharpness from F2, really good from f2.8; Weight and small size, good off of the tops

Cons: Focus (Eye-AF) is not always accurate. Price on the new no promotions and discounts exaggerated. Important chromatic aberrations.

Opinion: Accomplice a good offer on Amazon and the cashback, after using the Sony 50 FE F 1.8 I decided to move on to the older brother. The difference in sharpness between the two in the range F2-F 2.8 is remarkable: it is already seen by zooming the 24mpx to 50%. The 55 is a good lens; In my opinion, however, is not better than the Sony 85 FE F 1.8 so much in terms of sharpness that speed/accuracy of the autofocus. A TA 85 is sharper and even the Samyang 35mm f1.4 AF FE is slightly sharper (while open to 1.4). The detachment of the tops is very good, the fuzzy is pleasant and progressive (but only as long as it does not have thin foliage too close by). The color rendition is great, pretty cool. The autofocus is super quiet and fast enough. It is really compact and weighs little and for this I preferred it to other lenses, as it is ideal for Sony's mirrorless philosophy.
