The lens measures approximately 87mm in diameter and 108mm in length, with a filter diameter of 72mm. Additionally, it is designed with dust and moisture resistance for added durability.

While the FE 50mm f/1.2 GM remains a highly regarded lens in Sony’s lineup, the upcoming ultra-large aperture lens is expected to raise the bar even higher in terms of performance and image quality. Photographers and enthusiasts alike will be eagerly awaiting further details about this exciting new development from Sony.
