Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Lens

Portrait-perfect Sharpness and Bokeh
There's nothing like the sharpness and smooth bokeh of a well-designed mid-range telephoto prime lens for portraiture, and the SEL85F18 is a standout choice. It features a compact, lightweight design for mobility, with high-performance optics and a large F1.8 maximum aperture that deliver outstanding image quality. An excellent second lens for both full-frame and APS-C camera users.

Key Features:

  • High corner-to-corner resolution
    This compact, easy-to-handle lens offers fine prime lens performance with high corner-to-corner resolution. A precision optical design includes one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to effectively minimize chromatic aberration, while spherical aberration is tightly controlled for high overall sharpness with smooth bokeh when required.

  • Beautiful bokeh enhances portraits
    Spherical aberration is carefully optimized to achieve the best possible balance between resolution and smooth, natural bokeh that can provide a perfect backdrop for a wide range of subjects, while a 9-blade circular aperture contributes to beautiful bokeh highlights. 85 mm is often a photographer's first choice for people and portraits.

  • Mobile and manageable for active shooting
    A compact, lightweight design that is ideally matched to the a7 series offers a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events, and more. Even though the SEL85F18 features and advanced optical design add up to impressive overall performance, its 13.1-ounce (371-gram) weight makes it a great choice for active, on-the-go shooting.

  • Quiet, precise focus drive
    A double linear motor actuator system directly drives the lens's focus mechanism without noisy intervening gears, for precision positioning and quiet operation that are great for movies as well as stills.

  • Quality build, versatile features
    A customizable focus hold button can be assigned to other functions such as Eye AF, for example, while a wide, responsive focus ring offers improved manual focus comfort and precision. A dust and moisture resistant design plus other refinements add up to outstanding quality and photographic versatility.

  • Reliable in challenging conditions
    A sealed dust- and moisture-resistant design2 provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
