Sony just announced the release of the new 50mm f/1.4 G Master lens which was an interesting move in that just 2 years ago they released the sublime f/1.2 version. This makes Sony the second full frame camera manufacturer to offer an f/1.4 professional lens. Panasonic released their own in 2019 and Nikon and Canon only offer f/1.2 professional prime lenses.

So is the 50 f/1.4 G Master any good? Compared to what? In this video I want to compare the optical quality to 3 of what I think are the best 50mm lenses ever made - the Sony f/1.2 GM, the Leica 50mm Summilux f/1.4 ASPH. and the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4. How does the optical quality compare? If I could only choose 1 50mm lens for the rest of my career, which one would it be? Lets talk about that in this video.
