Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens
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.
Chiaro Pro 77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 77mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

I'm torn between this and the 135 GM 1.8 do any of you have both? Which one will give me the most versatility? Opinions welcome
Asked by: Tiggs
I have both and use them often when shooting live performances (music, theatre, and dance). Highly recommend going with the 85mm if you are looking at both and can only swing one right now. Def go with the 85mm 1.4 as a first choice. The 85mm and the 24mm 1.4 are my overall top favorites for lowlight. I also have the Sony Zeiss 1.4 50mm which rounds off the low light range killers. These four low light lenses are all I need in very low light. Cheers1 j

its 2022, Is Sony Fe 85mm f1.4 GM still has the auto focus noise? after the update?
Asked by: Paul
Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM has a linear Super Sonic wave Motor autofocus system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance which leads to one of the quietest autofocus system today. The lens software update was modify on May 25, 2017 to improve the tracking focus performance and blackout free shooting of up to 20 frames per second when using the ILCE-9. As far as we know there aren't no focusing noise unless the lens is defective which is also a rare case on Sony G-Master lenses.

Does this lens works good for APS-C Sony E mount cameras obviously considering the crop factor?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes; the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens with UV Filter Kit, B&H # SO8514GM77F, would be fully compatible for use on a Sony mirrorless camera using the smaller APS-C sensor. Compared to the same lens used on a full-frame camera, when used on the Sony camera with the APS-C sensor, the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens would simply have the equivalent angle of view of a 127.5mm lens used on a full-frame camera.
