One of the reviewers said the reviewer: actual focal length was a bit wider, around 48mm, is this true?
Asked by: edwin
While generally considered a non-issue for photographers, the focus breathing of this lens results in a slight change in the focal length depending on the distance of the subject upon which one is focusing. As such, the average is around 50mm, but that does vary very slightly according to the distance at which the subject is located. The advantage of this system is that it allows the lens not to need to extend at all in order to focus; The optical changes necessary for focusing occur entirely internally. The result is faster focusing with less vibration, better weather resistance, and a more consistent balance.

How does this lens compare to the 50mm f1.4 Planar T ?
Asked by: Marlon
The 1.4 is an excellent lens but shows its age when it comes to the precision of the glass machining. The bokeh will have a bit more onion skinning and the chromatic aberration is more pronounced. Also auto focus on the new 1.2 is way faster and more precise. Hope that helps! Well worth the extra $500 IMO

Is the manual focus linear? If I turn the camera off/on do I have to refocus? (two different questions)
Asked by: Brian
The manual focus on the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM uses an electronic fly-by-wire manual focusing system driven by Sony's Quad XD linear motor. From my tests in the store, when the lens is left in manual, after turning the camera off and on, the position of the lens focal plane in manual is not altered or changed.

Can you buy these as a set? If I bought a few is there a case you recommend?
Asked by: Tom
The Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM Lens is not sold as a set; the lens is sold individually. The Pelican iM2306 Storm Case with Foam (Black), B&H # PEIM2306B, and the Shell-Case Hybrid 330 Lightweight Semi-Rigid Utility Case with Foam Insert (Black), B&H # SHH330CFBK, would be good options for your usage needs. For a shoulder bag, the Domke F-5XB RuggedWear Shoulder and Belt Bag (Military Green), B&H # DOF5XBMLTGRN, would be another alternative to hold three (3) of the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM Lenses.
