Capture Stunning Portraits with the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens

This mid-range telephoto lens is designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras, making it prefect for shooting rich, detailed portraits with smooth bokeh. With a maximum aperture of f/1.8, you can create a stunningly shallow depth-of-field and shoot in low-light conditions with ease. The double linear AF motor allows you to acquire focus quickly and quietly, so you can capture your subjects with confidence.

85mm Portrait Focal Length

The focal length of the lens delivers a useful background compression that allows you to control your composition as well as delivering a very flattering focal length making it the perfect lens for portraiture. Although designed for Full frame cameras the lens is compatible with APS-C cameras and provides a 127.5mm equivalent.

Large f/1.8 Maximum Aperture

With a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture the lens performs exceptionally well in a variety of lighting conditions while at the same time providing the ability to shoot creatively with an ultra-shallow depth-of-field. The ability to separate your subject from the background using the wide-open aperture allows you to capture dreamy ethereal images with beautiful bokeh in out-of-focus areas.

Autofocus AF Motor with Double Linear Design

The lens makes use of a double linear autofocus motor to directly drive the focus mechanism without gears which results in fast, accurate and near silent autofocus performance. The versatile design of the autofocus system makes the lens ideal for creating high quality videos as well as stills.

Optical Construction Designed for Quality

Featuring a sophisticated optical layout with nine elements arranged in eight groups, as well as an extra-low dispersion element and a 9-bladed aperture diaphragm, ensures that colour fringing and chromatic aberrations are minimised while the bokeh, colour fidelity and sharpness of the lens are enhanced.

Customisable Control Layout

The lens boasts a physical AF/MF switch that allows you to change between focus system without taking your hand off your glass, as well as a manual focus ring for manual focus adjustments at any time. The focus hold button on the barrel can be used to hold focusing position, or it can be customised to control other lens functions.

Dust and Moisture Resistant Sealing

Designed for use in a range of different environments the Sony SEL85F18 85 mm f/1.8 FE Len uses comprehensive weather seals to protect against dust and moisture. Providing extra protection when working in less than perfect weather conditions so you can take stills and images with confidence.
