ZEISS Loxia 50mm f/2 Overview

Offering a normal field of view with an impressively compact design, the ZEISS Loxia 50mm f/2 is a flexible prime for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, well-suited for a range of subjects from portraits to landscapes. Utilizing a classic symmetrical Planar optical design, this lens is capable of achieving well-corrected, sharp imagery with controlled aberrations and distortions. An enhanced ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has also been applied to significantly reduce ghosting and flaring for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in difficult lighting conditions.

Loxia-series lenses are distinguished by their manual focus operation along with a manual aperture ring that can be de-clicked for silent operation; making them especially suitable for filmmaking applications. Loxia lenses are also characterized by their compact form factor and all-metal lens barrel, which incorporates engraved focusing and depth of field scales, for fine-tuned control. Additionally, the lens body sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to permit its use in trying environments.

Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 75mm equivalent focal length
Bright f/2 aperture helps to achieve a more compact, portable form factor while also remaining versatile for use in a variety of lighting conditions.
Planar optical design affords high sharpness and consistent performance throughout the focusing range to suit photographing at a wide range of imaging scales.
ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to each lens surface to help minimize reflections and provide greater contrast and color fidelity.
Manual focus design is benefitted by focusing and depth of field scales along with a 180° focus ring rotational angle and hard stops at both infinity and minimum focusing positions.
Manual aperture ring has clicked indicators throughout aperture range. Using the included De-Click Tool, this ring can be mechanically 'de-clicked' for smooth, silent rotation throughout the aperture range; making it ideal for video applications.
Weather-resistant construction includes internal seals to guard against dust and moisture as well as a blue sealing ring at the lens mount to protect the lens-camera interface.
The lens mount is fitted with an electronic interface that conveys all lens Exif data to the camera and can also be configured to automatically activate the camera's focusing magnification function when turning the focus ring.

have the Loxia 21. Its Killer. Can I use the 50 as a macro lens?
Asked by: Anthony
The ZEISS Loxia 2/50 is not a macro style lens, since the minimum focus distance is set at 17.7" and the image magnification ratio of 1:6.9. However, the lens can be used with extension tubes to provide close focus capability.

I had a lot of trouble taking it off my a7ii the first time. It became easier after several times. And it's not an issue any more.

question

Has anyone used this lens or the Loxia 35mm f/2 in combination with a matte box and follow focus? They seem too short to use both and have a comfortable rig setup. I would hesitate to purchase them simply for that reason.
Asked by: Claude
I do not have direct use using the lens with a follow focus or a matte box on the lens at the same time. The lens is on the smaller side but there are many follow focus that should work fine with it. And as for a matte box to be used at the same time with a follow focus a rig in most cases will need to be used. This way you have more versatility on positioning of the matte box.

question

Shooting raw files, knowing that the raw file retains the color information, can I set the a7s to B&W display and select a color for focus peaking to make manual focusing easier with this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes: You have the choice of changing the Focus Peaking colour. It is limited to Red, Yellow and White, I use yellow all the time anyway so it generally makes no difference what effect I shoot in. The Peaking intensity can also be changed if it is too much or not enough. That's a camera function though, nothing to do with the lens. Hope this helps.

question

Do I have to use stop down metering?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the lens stops down automatically. I find this most helpful, seeing what I will be capturing before I press the shutter release. I would also add that this has become my favorite lens. Period.
