Designed and engineered to the most exacting of standards, the award-winning Sony 85mm f1.4 GM lens is the ultimate tool for portrait photography and video. Even with the aperture wide open this outstanding prime lens renders details with pin-sharp precision, right from corner to corner. Performance like this makes the Sony 85mm f1.4 GM lens capable of not only taking breathtaking portraits, but also realising the potential of current and future high-resolution cameras.
Like all Sony G Master lenses, the Sony 85mm f1.4 GM lens incorporates the most advanced technology available. The first α lens to incorporate 11 blades in a circular aperture design, it delivers stunningly soft, natural bokeh in defocused areas. The highest levels of resolution and bokeh quality are maintained thanks to three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that effectively control chromatic aberration. In addition, Sony’s Nano AR (antireflective) coating suppresses flare and ghosting to ensure maximum clarity and contrast.
Outstanding degrees of focus accuracy are required to truly get the most out of advanced high-resolution camera bodies. To achieve such accuracy the Sony 85mm f1.4 GM lens employs not one, but two autofocus sensors.
While still photographers tend to favour the tactile feel of click stops on the aperture ring, filmmakers prefer smooth, quiet aperture control. The Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM Lens’ groundbreaking Iris/Aperture switch allows the click stops on the aperture ring to be turned on or off to suit your preference or project. A focus mode switch and focus hold button offer yet more professional operability for a wide range of shooting scenarios.
In addition to standard dust and moisture sealing, the Sony 85mm f1.4 GM lens features a seal at the lens-body interface for even greater protection. This means you can shoot even more confidently in light rain or windy conditions.
