Size Comparison: Zeiss 55mm F1.8 vs Sony FE 50mm F1.8

Sony announced the new FE 50mm f/1.8 lens (along with the FE 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G OSS lens and RX10 III camera). The new 50mm F1.8 prime lens is extremely compact, lightweight and affordably priced, making it an ideal choice for those looking to explore the benefits of a large aperture prime lens at a reasonable cost.

Here is the size comparison between the Zeiss 55mm F1.8 and the new Sony FE 50mm F1.8. Both are great standard prime lenses for Sony A7 series cameras, but the price of Sony FE 50mm is only quarter of the Zeiss 55mm.

The new Sony FE 50mm F1.8 Lens is now available for pre-order and will be released on May 4, 2016.
