If you’re looking for the perfect prime lens for portraits, this Sony might be the one for you. Although designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, it’s compatible with crop sensors as well, where it provides a 125.5mm focal length. The f/1.8 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions, and its nine rounded blades ensure that you’ll get smooth bokeh whenever and wherever you want it.
The lens is built from nine elements that have been broken down into eight groups. An extra-low dispersion element removes color fringing and chromatic aberrations, resulting in only clear, color-accurate renderings. Autofocus is quick, quiet, and precise during video and photo, thanks to the double linear autofocus motor. Further refine your focus using the focus hold button, located on the barrel, or set it up in-camera and use it to control other lens functions. A lever makes it easy to switch between manual and autofocus whenever the spirit moves you.
The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 has a 29° angle of view, 0.13x maximum magnification, a minimum focusing distance of 2.62 feet, and is compatible with 67mm front filters. It’s also dust and moisture-resistant.
