Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM vs 50mm f/2.5 G: Image Comparison Video

The new Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM is a pretty big investment but is it worth $1,400 more than the Sony 50mm f/2.5 G? I’m curious if the above video had a different white balance for each lens, but if they were the same the 50mm f/2.5 G has a slight shift in color to my eyes that makes it stand out over the superior accurate color rending of the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM.

Beyond the color shift, both lenses render images very similarly when set to a similar f stop. Most photographers that will shell out the money for a better lens understand that you’re wasting your money if you aren’t shooting wide open, but the above video also demonstrates how good affordable glass has become.
