Sony FE 85mm F1.8 Lens Review (Opticallimits): an Epic Lens

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKlaus Schroiff has just posted a full review of the newly released Sony FE 85mm F1.8 Lens (Amazon/B&HAdorama) at the Opticallimits.com. Tested on the full-frame 42-Mpix Sony a7R II, this is an epic lens!

Verdict from opticallimits, “Moderately fast – the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 is an epic lens. It combines outstanding sharpness with a buttery bokeh which is a quite rare combination actually. Lenses that are pushing sharpness are usually not quite as smooth when it comes to the quality of the bokeh. Lateral CAs, as well as image distortions, are low. ..The build quality of the lens is surprisingly high considering the fact that the lens is primarily targeting the consumer market. It’s a tightly assembled, all-metal construction and it’s weather-sealed, too. Manual focusing (by wire) works nicely and the auto-focusing speed is above average…And to complete the nice story, all that is available at a very affordable price. Therefore, unless you really need that extra speed of a 85mm f/1.4 (and most don’t really), we finish with … highly recommended!”
