The Ultimate Portrait Prime

Often referred to as the perfect focal length for portraiture, the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM is a fast short-telephoto prime distinguished by its flattering field of view, advanced optics, and ability to isolate subjects with shallow depth of field. As a G Master lens, too, this lens offers refined sharpness and bokeh quality, championing a pleasing image quality well-suited for portraits, events, and and other situations where focus control is paramount.

Fast Design, Refined Optics

  • As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.
  • Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers a wealth of control over focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
  • A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
  • One XA element is incorporated into the optical design, which features superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other spherical aberrations.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the lens design and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color neutrality.

Practical and Intuitive Handling

  • Linear Super Sonic wave Motor (SSM) autofocus system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control.
  • An AF/MF switch is located on the lens barrel for tactile control over this setting.
  • Focus hold button is present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • Physical aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
  • Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

This lens is the perfect addition to my 35mm for both weddings and sessions. I love the shallow DOF I get with the 1.4 while still getting a sharp and clean image!

The bokeh and IQ of this lens are incredible!!! Plus the fast AF makes it a perfect lens for any situation where shallow depth of field and sharpness are required... highly recommended!!!

Fast Focus on A7C

I heard this lens was slow to focus, especially in lowlight, so I was hesitant to buy it. But i've had no problems with it on my A7C. I do hear the focusing noise, but personally it doesn't bother me. My only qualm is that it's quite heavy and bowling ball-like in terms of size haha
