The Sony 85mm FE f/1.4 is part of the G Master series of lenses that represent the ultimate fusion of image quality and performance. Suitable for E-mount full frame & APS-C cameras, the lens is designed to be compatible with future increases in image resolutions. With Sony’s innovative optical technology, it delivers unprecedented levels of sharpness and edge-to-edge clarity.
With an 85mm focal length combined with an ultra-bright f/1.4 aperture the lens offers the perfect combination of background compression, depth of field and background blur making it an excellent go-to-lens for portraiture. The lens can beautifully isolate your subject with a smooth depth of field, ideal for capturing stunning portraits both in the studio or on location.
Superior Low Light Performance
The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture provides a remarkable performance in challenging low-light conditions, allowing you to shoot hand-held without needing to increase the ISO keeping your compositions clean and clear.
Beautiful Rounded Bokeh
The 11-bladed rounded iris diaphragm produces clean circular bokeh and the refined manufacture of the optical elements controls imperfections that can cause the onion-ring effect to ensure the lens can capture images with resolution and accuracy.
Flawless Focus Precision
Lightning-fast autofocus is possible with the SSM (Super Sonic Wave Motor) system with excellent responsiveness for precise, accurate results. Changing focus modes is quick and intuitive with the AF/MF switch and the lens even has an integrated focus hold button on the side that can be customised to perform a range of functions.
Superb Resolving Power
Using a complex optical design with 11 elements in 8 groups, the lens boasts an exceptionally high resolution and outstanding sharpness. The lens incorporates one XA (extreme aspherical) and three ED glass elements that minimise artificial colouration and ensure breathtaking detail with greatly reduced chromatic aberrations.
Nano AR Coating
To supress reflections and reduce flaring the optics are treated with a Nano AR coating that improves clarity, contrast, and overall image quality in backlit conditions so you can capture properly exposed shots even in the most demanding situations.
A dedicated aperture ring offers manual control over your aperture settings. The click stops provide a more traditional feel and can be turned off for click-free operation, ideal for cinematographer and videographers who need to make more subtle changes to their scene.
Professional Features and Handling
Designed with working professionals in mind the lens is dust and moisture sealed for environmental protection with a textured rubber focus ring for easy grip. The front element of the lens does not rotate during focus, which mean you can use a screw-in circular polarisation filter without needing to adjust if you refocus.
Combining eye-catching bokeh with extraordinary levels of resolution and low-light performance, the Sony G Series Full Frame 85mm f1.4 master lens can deliver incredibly sharp and beautiful images and video.
