Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Prime E-Mount Lens

The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 is a mid-range telephoto prime lens – great choice for professional photographers who require the best optical performance possible. This lens utilizes Smooth Trans Focus (STF) technology to reduce chromatic aberration and provide softly dissolving bokeh without sacrificing image resolution. This means that the out-of-focus points of light in your photos retain a soft, blurry look as opposed to the harsh rings that can occur with lower quality lenses.

In order to further improve image quality, the lens features Sony’s Nano Anti-Reflective coating which reduces the amount of light that’s reflected by the lens and helps reduce lens flare and image ghosting. A constant aperture of f/2.8 lets you to maintain exposure settings while changing the zoom range.

Extra Low Dispersion (ED) Glass Element

The ED glass element built into the optical path works in conjunction with the aspherical lens element to further reduce chromatic aberrations. These elements reduce lateral and axial chromatic aberration without reducing resolution so your pictures will have a stunning level of texture and detail without sacrificing vibrant, lifelike colors.

Wide f/1.8 Maximum Aperture

Shooting in low-light situations is always challenging, but this lens’s constant f/1.8 maximum aperture ensures that you’ll get great looking pictures in any light. You won’t have to worry about readjusting exposure settings, either, as this lens maintains its settings as you zoom in and out. Since you won’t have to readjust exposure settings, you also won’t have to deal with slower shutter speeds in low light either.

Beautiful Background Bokeh

The lens utilizes a 9-blade circular aperture for creating beautiful bokeh highlights. Spherical aberration is optimized to achieve the best possible balance between resolution and smooth, natural bokeh giving you a perfect backdrop for a wide range of subjects. 85mm Lens is often a photographer's first choice for people and portraits.

Quiet, Precise Focus Drive

A double linear motor actuator system directly drives the lens's focus mechanism without noisy intervening gears, for precision positioning and quiet operation that are great for movies as well as stills.

Compact, Lightweight Design

The lens is most suitable for the Sony Alpha a7 series, offering a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events and more. It is compact and lightweight, weighing just 13.1-ounce, yet includes features and advanced optical design that add up to impressive overall performance.

Dust- And Moisture-Resistant Design

Thanks to the dust- and moisture-resistant sealing that provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments.
