An ideal portrait-length prime, the FE 85mm f/1.8 from Sony is a sleek
short-telephoto lens designed for full-frame E-mount mirrorless cameras.
The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits this lens's use in low-light
conditions and also affords extensive control over depth of field when
working with selective focus techniques. The nine elements, eight groups
lens construction includes one extra-low dispersion element to minimize
chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color
accuracy. Benefitting the optical design is a simple, intuitive physical
layout that incorporates a customizable focus hold button for easy
control over the precise focus position. The double linear AF motor
itself affords quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance, and this
motor also offers snappy manual focus performance for fine-tuned control.
