Sony FE 85mm f1.8 Lens

  • Portrait-perfect sharpness and bokeh

    There’s nothing like the sharpness and smooth bokeh of a well-designed mid-range telephoto prime lens for portraiture, and the SEL85F18 is a standout choice. It features a compact, lightweight design for mobility, with high-performance optics and a large F1.8 maximum aperture that deliver outstanding image quality. An excellent second lens for both full-frame and APS-C camera users.
  • Fine prime-lens performance

    ED glass for chromatic aberration compensation, a 9-blade circular aperture, and carefully controlled spherical aberration contribute to superb sharpness and smooth bokeh.
  • Mobile and manageable for active shooting

    A compact, lightweight (371g, 13.1 oz.) design that is ideally matched to the α7 series offers a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events, and more.
  • Quiet, precise focus drive 

    A double linear motor system directly drives the lens’s focus mechanism without intervening gears for precise, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills.
  • Quality build, versatile features

    A customisable focus hold button, a wide and responsive focus ring, dust and moisture resistant design1, and other refinements add up to outstanding quality and versatility.

  • Lens Configuration

    Impressive optical performance for Sony cameras, precision engineered for versatility and reliability in a wide range of applications.
  • MTF Chart

    MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.

Very quiet in operation and pin sharp images.
It is quite a large prime lens, but I was aware of that prior to purchase.
