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.

Ideal for On-the-Go Shooting 

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. This means you won’t run the risk of distracting your subject or recording unwanted noise in your videos – meaning you’ll get natural, candid expressions and clean audio.

User-Friendly Controls and Handling 

With thoughtful, user-friendly features, the Sony 85mm 1.8 lens makes it easier to get the shots you’re after. Easily lock focus and recompose your shot using the focus hold button, which can also be customised to control other functions like Eye AF. When you need to fine-tune your focusing, manually focus with precision and comfort thanks to the wide and responsive focus ring.

Reliable Protection Against the Weather 

Don’t let the weather deter you from pursuing that perfect shot. Featuring a solid build with dust- and moisture-resistant sealing, the Sony 85mm 1.8 lens ensures that you can shoot with peace of mind in wind or light rain.

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 Sony 85mm 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.

Fine Prime-Lens Performance

ED glass for chromatic aberration compensation, a 9-blade circular aperture, and carefully controlled spherical aberration contribute to superb sharpness and smooth bokeh.

Mobile and Manageable for Active Shooting

A compact, lightweight (371g, 13.1 oz.) design that is ideally matched to the α7 series offers a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events, and more.

Quiet, Precise Focus Drive

A double linear motor system directly drives the lens’s focus mechanism without intervening gears for precise, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills.

Quality Build, Versatile Features

A customisable focus hold button, a wide and responsive focus ring, dust and moisture resistant design1, and other refinements add up to outstanding quality and versatility.
