Sony FE 50mm F1.2 GM Review Rundown
Sony FE 50mm F1.2 GM is arguably the best 50mm for Sony E mount. Speaking of image quality, Sony boasts edge-to-edge sharpness and superior flare resistance, thanks to the employment of XA (extreme aspherical) elements and Nano AR Coating II. The lens's 11-blade rounded aperture and f/1.2 aperture further guarantee smooth bokeh.

Reviewers from Sonyalpha have found the following[***]:
The Sony 50 F1.2 GM is aiming at being the best 50mm for Sony E mount. It is not replacing the Zeiss lens (1500 euros) but comes on top of it with a 40% price premium.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Sony FE 50mm F1.2 GM is the first ultra-bright aperture lens from the company. It's part of the G Master series, Sony's top tier of lenses. Sony's full-frame line includes 5-axis IBIS, so any lens enjoys some steadying. Resolution reaches outstanding levels when stopped down just a little bit.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 is the fastest E-mount lens currently available. The lens uses three XA (extreme aspherical) lens elements that apparently help produce sharp images throughout the aperture range. Other notable features include a circular 11-blade aperture, which helps to produce stunning bokeh with circular highlights. The only criticism here is the vignetting when shooting wide open, but this disappears completely by f/2.8.
