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.

Finally after long research I've got my 1st lens and I couldn't be happier.

Paired with Sony a7iii these two work amazingly together. Very sharp picture quality with aperture of f1.8-f22.

85mm is mostly recommended for portraits but this won't stop you from taking some amazing pictures. This will give you great distance in street photography and you won't need to come awkwardly close to your subject.
If you're a new into photography it could be challenging to get used to camera and this lens itself but after couple of days you will get good feeling and handle of it.

Build quality is high and sturdy and everything works really smooth.

Bought it a couple of weeks ago, and it just keeps blowing me away. I did a photo shoot recently and also did some interiors, and oh boy I have never been more hyped about doing photos than now.
