Product Overview

Panasonic Lumix S Pro 50mm F1.4 is a large-aperture normal prime lens for Leica L-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Panasonic in 2019, it has 13 elements in 11 groups.
For incremental weathers, Panasonic is kind enough to include weather sealing. On the lens barrel, one can find a physical aperture ring. Those who wish to focus manually can have the best of both worlds (with the usual caveats).
A normal prime lens, the Panasonic Lumix S Pro 50mm F1.4 has the potential to be one of the most used and ultimately versatile option in a photographer's bag. Usually the easiest to design and to QC, it is a great option for landscape and street photography. Its bright maximum aperture also helps night and portrait works.

Sentiment Score 76%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
Panasonic includes a physical aperture ring as part of the lens design. Autofocus is very fast, with hard stops at the close focus distance and infinity. The lens is able to focus as close as 17.3 inches (44cm) for a meager 1:6.7 life-size macro.

  • Sharp f/1.4 and f/2.4
  • Autofocus is very fast
  • Very good image quality
