The Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar T* Lens is a normal lens designed for use with full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. The 50mm prime focal length is the closest representation of the perspective seen with the human eye and is a versatile lens well suited for portraiture, landscapes, travel, street photography and more. When paired with an APS-C sensor camera, the 35mm focal length equivalent is 75mm. The fast f/2 maximum aperture helps contribute to clearer pictures in low light situations and the Loxia 50mm features an engraved manual aperture ring that can be "de-clicked" for smooth and quiet operation especially useful when recording video. The aperture can be adjusted in 1/2 stop increments ranging from minimum f/2 to maximum f/22.Zeiss T* Lenses possess anti-reflective coatings on the lens elements for excellent color reproduction, clarity and contrast. All metal construction protects against moisture and dust and contributes to overall lens durability. Features: Manual focus lens with a high quality focusing mechanism for maximum precision.Planar optical design compensates and corrects distortion throughout the focal range.Compact and lightweight lens measures 2.44" x 2.33" and weighs approximately 11.30 oz.Minimum focusing distance of 45 cm.Limited 2 Year Manufacturers Warranty.

I just received the Loxia 50mm and the focus wheel is noticeable too stiff. It definitely takes two fingers to focus, and it challenges my hand hold the camera to stay steady. This makes tracking moving subjects and recording video recording video very tough. Looks like I'll have to return and hope for a better replacement.
The lens is manual focus, but the electronic contacts provide all the needed exif file information to the camera. Absolutely extraordinary is the contact that automatically converts to magnified view when the lens focus ring is rotated. This allows immediate critical focussing utilizing a focus peaking that seems to work better with this lens than with my other Voitlander manual focus lenses. Once focussed, a slight touch on the shutter release brings the whole image back, and further pressure triggers the shutter release. Altogether, this is the most rapid and accurate manual focussing I have experienced. It brings the joy back to manual focussing.
One important action that is not in the manuals and not immediately evident from the menu options is the setting in the camera menu for live view display. This is in item 3 of the second top menu display. Under live view display, setting effect should be turned off. This allows the viewfinder to remain bright throughout the f stop settings on the lens. Another point to emphasize is that these lenses are set for a bit of hyper focus at infinity. This means that the lens should be focussed at all times, even when the subject is at infinity.
That said, the lens is a joy to use. Pictures are sharp and the colors really pop out. There is almost no spherical or other aberration when pictures are shot with the lens wide open. I think that Zeiss has hit a home run with this lens. It puts the A7 series cameras in the same category as the small unobtrusive Leica M cameras. This is where I believe that A7 cameras belong, rather than amongst the large lens SLR's that the clunky Sony lenses originally available consigned the camera to.
If you have a camera that has digital peaking, this is a must to have for portrait photography - both in or out of studio settings. Zeiss glass can be pricey BUT you get what you pay for. The colors are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend that you also purchase a Zeiss UV filter as well for these lenses. Why? Why not! Their filters were made for these lenses and that it has something to do with how the light comes through the lens using these filters.
For videographers, this lens is extremely smooth when focusing from foreground to background and visa versa. It comes with a small tool so you can adjust the smoothness of the focus ring. I highly recommend this lens to a more seasoned photographer and/or videographer who wants high quality glass that will create amazing, consistent photos. Cheers!
