Sony 85mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Well-suited for portrait photographers, the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the fast portrait-length prime with a 77mm UV filter to protect the front of the lens.

  • Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens

    A prized focal length for portraiture, the FE 85mm f/1.4 GM from Sony is a fast, short-telephoto lens designed for E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. Characterized by its flattering perspective and fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is adept at isolation focus for shallow depth of field effects, as well as performing in low-light conditions. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and one XA (extreme aspherical) element, which significantly controls spherical aberrations for a high degree of image sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Nano AR coating has been applied to limit ghosting and lens flare for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Pairing a bright f/1.4 aperture with a short-telephoto focal length, this 85mm lens is ideally suited for portraiture and other situations where focus control is paramount.

    Complementing the optical assets, this lens is also notable for its inclusion of an 11-blade circular diaphragm to produce smooth, soft-edged bokeh with selective focus imagery. For controlling focus, a linear SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is employed that is quick and quiet, and also lends more responsive control for manual focus operation. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to support shooting in inclement conditions and a dedicated focus hold button, AF/MF switch, and manual aperture ring lend further control while shooting.

    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. Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications.
    A portrait-length prime designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras, this 85mm f/1.4 is also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
    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.
    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.
    A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
    A linear Super Sonic wave Motor 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.
    A 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.
    Rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

  • Hoya 77mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter

    The Hoya 77mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and protect the front of your lens. Its clear design allows you to pair this filter with others or leave on lenses at all times as a general protective filter. It can also help to reduce dust and moisture and keep them from reaching your lens element while providing additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

    Hoya HMC filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, over 97% light transmission is possible in order to maintain contrast and color fidelity. The UV NXT filters are constructed from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.

    Absorbs UV light, which can cause outdoor photos to appear hazy and indistinct.

    HMC multi-coating affords greater than 97% light transmission and helps to reduce flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface for greater contrast and color fidelity.

Sony 85mm f/1.4 reviews

FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens with UV Filter Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular product The lens+filter arrived on time with no damage to the package. Everything was as expected. Tremendous build quality, great finish. Now performance.. This lens while rather expensive it most definitely reflects the price. Incredibly sharp lens made for bokeh. If small details matter to you, I'd recommend this any day. Mine is currently paired with the Sony A7Rii.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens Bokeh is beautiful. A little on the heavy side but worth its weight in gold. My first photo shoot at 1.4 consisted of some portraits and lifestyle shots to update a client's new website update. Post processing was minimal. Very impressed!
