Sony’s G Master series is highly regarded for offering some of the best lenses available on the market. Renowned for providing impeccable photographs and video footage, the line up was missing a focal length - A beloved prime focal length that is used by every photographer or videographer at some point in their journey. With an advanced and intricate optical structure, this Sony FE 50mm f1.2 prime lens maintains the flawless quality of the Sony G Master lens range and offers that very classic focal length.

Expanded Sony FE 50mm f1.2 G Master Lens Key Features:

Outstanding Optical Performance

The advanced and intricate optical structure of the Sony FE 50mm f1.2 G Master prime lens is how this lens is able to capture faultless, ultra-high-quality images and video footage. This structure is comprised of 14 glass elements arranged into 10 groups, which includes the use of three XA (extreme aspherical) elements and a single aspherical element. Combined, these high-quality lenses provide high-resolution, clarity-rich images with edge-to-edge sharpness and accurate colour rendition. To further increase the quality that this lens can capture, Sony’s use of their Nano AR Coating II significantly reduces internal reflections that would otherwise plague your images with flare and ghosting. This coating has been specially designed, even allowing you to confidently shoot in backlit scenes e.g. landscapes or controlled studio spaces where bright light causes issues.

Aperture Control

Right off the bat, the notion of an f1.2 aperture evokes ideas of expressive control over depth-of-field and selective focus. It does just that, and thanks to the advanced Extreme Asheperical lens elements, edge-to-edge sharpness is ensured even whilst wide open at f1.2. Of course, providing a maximum aperture of f1.2, and when used with Sony's FE Mirrorless Cameras, such as the Sony A7 III, you’re afforded the flexibility and freedom to shooting in low-light situations and still maintain image quality and resolution. Finally, the wide f1.2, 11-bladed aperture diaphragm is able to recreate that undeniably signature G Master bokeh defocus effect, helping you create dramatic and professional images/videos.

Lightning Fast and Accurate

For a prime lens, this is larger than others on the market but that’s not without power behind it. To drive the complex lens structure Sony has incorporated four XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear motors which themselves feature an advanced construction that is able to provide super-fast and highly accurate autofocusing. When pairing this lens and it’s AF system with a Sony FE Mirrorless camera body makes for a formidable duo, and internal focusing ensures minimised focus breathing which makes it an incredible lens for video work, delivering smooth, fast and accurate focusing.

The Sony G Master Range

Sony has truly redefined what a camera lens is capable of with its G Master range. The combination of high-resolution capabilities and the aesthetic of bokeh provide creators with the tools to capture stunning visuals in a variety of shooting environments. They add extensive details and texture to the frame, along with stunning bokeh - each lens is individually tested and adjusted to achieve maximum quality. In addition to this, the Sony FE 50mm f1.2 G Master Lens features a dust and moisture resistant design, which along with versatile lens barrel controls, offers your enhanced flexibility in the ways you can capture footage.

Is this lens compatible with the Sony A6500?

Because this is an FE lens, it will mount onto a Sony A6500. However, a crop factor of 1.5X will be applied to the focal length.

  • In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
  • Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
    • In regular, permanent employment.
    • Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
    • Not working through disability.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.

The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
