  • 1Description

In addition to adding the compact portrait-length prime lens to your camera bag, the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H also includes a versatile 67mm UV filter to help protect the lens.

  • Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens

    An ideal portrait-length prime, the FE 85mm f/1.8 from Sony is a sleek short-telephoto lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras. The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits this lens's use in low-light conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field when working with selective focus techniques. The nine elements, eight groups lens construction includes one extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color accuracy. Benefitting the optical design is a simple, intuitive physical layout that incorporates a customizable focus hold button and a physical AF/MF switch. The double linear AF motor itself affords quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance, and this motor also offers snappy manual focus performance for fine-tuned control.

    Prime portrait-length lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
    Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture allows for fine-tuned control over depth of field and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
    One extra-low dispersion element is featured in the optical design and helps to limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations for heightened image clarity and color accuracy.
    Double linear autofocus motor delivers smooth, precise, and near silent focusing performance to benefit both stills and video applications.
    The focus hold button on the lens barrel can be used to hold the focusing position, or can be set in-camera to control a variety of additional lens functions. Also, the lens has an AF/MF switch for tactile control over the focus mode.
    Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.

  • Chiaro 67mm 98-UVAT UV Filter

    The 67mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers 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. Resistance coating improves the scratch resistance of the glass, and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

    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 allows 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 Knurling
    Top knurling offers a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
    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.

Sony 85mm f/1.8 reviews

FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens with UV Filter Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A sharp, lightweight prime: awesome Perfect complement to an A7riii, making a great allaround pairing. Add a 35mm (not gonna get into choices here), plus either a 135mm on the long end or 18mm on the short end, and you will have a 2- or 3-prime combo that makes for an interesting argument / alternative to carrying zooms. No I.S., but sony’s camera stabilization helps. (UV filter was essentially ‘free’, �so won’t comment on quality compared to other solutions....) Would add 1star if it was a little more rugged/weather sealed at same price....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from meets my high expectations For an A7ii I wanted a sharp quick focusing lens in this focal range that is compact and "travel friendly". My 90mm macro tends to be too large to haul around, albeit a sensationally sharp lens. The 85mm gets me close enough to this focal length and is a great performer. Sharp and fast focusing with no noticeable CA. I use the 85mm on both an A7ii and A6300. Very pleased.
