A classic focal length and a classic design, the Canon EF-mount Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZE from ZEISS is a normal-length prime ideal for working with most subjects. Its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field for using selective focus. The Planar type optical concept is a tried-and-true design that yields consistently high sharpness throughout the focusing range with even illumination throughout the aperture range. Also, a T* anti-reflective coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy.
Normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide an 80mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords extensive control over depth of field for achieving selective focus effects and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
