Speaking of the 50mm f / 1.4 lens, it is a standard lens that has gained standard popularity since the film camera era. For a long time, camera manufacturers and lens manufacturers have released a variety of products, but Panasonic's L-mount lens “LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4” is also highly regarded as the “ultimate 50mm F1.4 lens”. is. The actual selling price is around 250,000 yen including tax, and weighs about 955g, but it was one that showed a great image from the open aperture, regardless of rumors.

LUMIX S PRO 50mm F1.4 is a finish that has a strong presence compared to other companies' 50mm F1.4 lenses. 13 elements in 11 groups [2 aspherical lenses, 3 ED lenses], 90mm in diameter, 130mm in total length, approximately 955g in weight, but feels the best balance when mounted on Panasonic's full-size mirrorless "LUMIX S1" It was.
The question, “Why is it so big and heavy?” With the lens in hand, thawed as I opened the shutter and opened the shutter. The bokeh was very elegant and smooth. Nevertheless, the three-dimensionality of the focal plane is rich and shows memorable depictions.
The feeling of use is also quite good. When the focus ring is slid, the distance indicator appears instantly and you can enjoy shooting with manual focus. Of course, even with autofocus, F1.4 was able to focus at a high speed without difficulty.
The presence of the aperture ring also makes me feel like taking a photographer. The click feeling was reasonably firm, and the ring that was neither too thick nor too thin had good finger contact, and the aperture value was set as intended.
Certainly it was a large and heavy lens, but the image and the feeling of operation were just one of the “convinced” ones. If you have an L-mount camera, it's a standard lens you should try.
