Sony 85mm f/2.8 SAM Overview

Lightweight and compact, the full-frame Sony 85mm f/2.8 SAM Lens is a great choice for portrait photographers who will appreciate the short telephoto perspective and ability to capture an image with a shallow depth of field. The lens incorporates a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) for fast, precise, and quiet focusing and offers a minimum focus distance of 2'. Additionally, the maximum aperture of f/2.8 works with a seven-blade circular diaphragm to create images with smooth, rounded bokeh.

Designed for full-frame A-mount cameras, this portrait-length 85mm prime can be used on APS-C cameras as well, where it will provide an equivalent focal length of 127.5mm.
A maximum aperture of f/2.8 keeps lens size and weight to a minimum while still enabling users to create images with shallow depth of field.
By incorporating a Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM) unit into the lens itself to drive the focusing element group, this lens is able to deliver smoother, quieter, and faster performance than coupled systems. Also, it offers a minimum focus distance of 2'.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
