Stunning Portraits Even in Low Light
Bring out the best in your portrait subjects with the Sony FE 85mm f1.8 lens. This superb mid-telephoto prime lens combines advanced optics and f1.8 maximum brightness to render stunning images, even in low light. A 9-blade circular aperture and Extra-low Dispersion glass combat chromatic and spherical aberration, helping you to capture amazingly crisp detail in focused areas and smooth bokeh in defocused ones.

Weighing just 371g, the Sony 85mm 1.8 lens is ideal for on-the-go shooting. Perfectly proportioned for Sony a7 and a6000 series cameras, its portable design won’t weigh you down. Whether you’re travelling between shoots or holiday destinations or you’re shooting handheld in the studio, on the street or at a family gathering, this lens leaves you free to focus on your subject and surroundings, rather than your gear.
Quiet, Precise AF for Stills and Video
Be sure to capture the moment uninterrupted. Driven by a double linear motor system, the Sony 85mm 1.8 lens’ focus mechanism delivers accurate, quiet operation.
