Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4 Lens
Key Features
  • L-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Three Extra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Two Aspherical Elements
Combining impressive speed and optics, the Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4 is a sophisticated normal-length prime for L-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens excels in low-light conditions and also affords improved control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements and three extra-low dispersion elements, which reduce both spherical and chromatic aberrations for high sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Complementing the optics is a unique double focus system, which utilizes both a linear motor and a stepping motor, to provide especially fast and precise focusing performance. Additionally, a rounded 11-blade diaphragm helps to achieve smooth, pleasing bokeh and the lens also sports a weather-sealed design for working in harsh conditions.

Is there a tripod mount for this lens? How to ...

Is there a tripod mount for this lens? How to support this on a tripod to relieve the stress of its weight on the camera lens mount? Just letting it hang off the camera, with only the camera body attached to the tripod would seem to weaken the lens mount, especially over time.
Asked by: David
Not having tripod support seems to beg the question as to why it exists for their S Pro 70-200 f/4 lens, which weighs about the same (and also has optical stabilization). Either that zoom lens doesn't really need tripod support, or else this S Pro 50 lens really does need it. After handling both lenses, I am of the opinion that the S Pro 50 should really have had an option for lens support, especially for smaller bodies like the Sigma fp. So, I do not recommend this lens for use with the Sigma fp bodies because of this. On much larger bodies, like the Leica SL2s, it is a little better.
