The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 makes a strong argument for itself as the ideal portrait-length prime lens. A refined and attractively designed short-telephoto lens for full-frame E mount mirrorless cameras. The f/1.8 maximum aperture is bright enough to capture stunning images in even the lowest light conditions, permitting the user great control over their depth of field. The nine total lens elements include a single extra-low dispersion lens element designed to reduce or entirely eliminate chromatic and colour fringing.

A sleek and intuitive outer design makes the FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens a joy to use, like so many of Sony’s lenses. An incorporated and customisable hold focus button permits precise control over the depth of field and selective focus techniques. All powered by a double linear autofocus motor that will present no disruptions, and easily overridden with a manual focus function.
