An ideal portrait-length prime, the FE 85mm f/1.8 from Sony
is a sleek short-telephoto lens designed for full-frame E-mount
mirrorless cameras. The bright f/1.8 design is an ideal balance between
speed and a compact form factor and the slightly long focal length
offers a flattering perspective for portraiture and event photography.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture allows for fine-tuned control over depth
of field and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
One extra-low dispersion element is featured in the optical design and
helps to limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations for heightened
image clarity and color accuracy.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and Handling
Double linear autofocus motor delivers smooth, precise, and near silent
focusing performance to benefit both stills and video applications.
Focus hold button on the lens barrel can be used to hold the focusing
position, or can be set in-camera to control a variety of additional
AF/MF switch for tactile control over the focus mode.
Dust- and moisture-resistant design for increased protection to the elements.
