The Sony 85mm f/1.8 FE lens is a portrait-length prime lens. Designed for use with full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. It can however also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length. A bright maximum aperture of f/1.8 makes it well-suited to working in low-light conditions where creates shallow depth of field. The rounded nine-blade diaphragm produces pleasing out of focus ‘bokeh’ areas. Comes with a UV and a lens hood.
The lens design uses nine elements in eight groups and includes one extra-low dispersion element to minimise chromatic aberrations. This also minimises colour fringing for enhanced clarity and colour accuracy. The optical design has a simple, intuitive layout that incorporates a customisable focus hold button for easy control over the precise focus. A double linear AF motor provides quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance, with manual focus available for fine-tuned control.
