The Art of Photography posted an interesting comparison of Sony vs. the best 50mm ever created, and Sony does quite well. There isn’t much to cover here, but in short, the Sony 50mm f/1.4 and Sony 50mm f/1.2 compare quite well to each other with great field curvature. While the Zeiss Otus represents a no-compromise best we can design 50mm for DSLR cameras and the Leica Summilux offers unique character in the midframe that gives it the Leica look that is almost universally preferred over other designs while not being as sharp as the Zeiss or Sony offerings.
