Kevin Carter has just posted a detailed review of the new released Sony FE 85mm F1.8 Lens (Amazon/B&H/ Adorama) at the DxOMark.com. Tested on the full-frame 42-Mpix Sony a7R II, this new lens achieved an excellent overall score of 46 points. What’s more important is that it is much cheaper than the rival Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 as well as the Sony FE 85mm f1.4 GM. So, it is one of the best portrait lenses for Sony A7 Series cameras.
Along with the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS Lens, Sony also officially announced another full-frame E mount lens: Sony FE 85mm F1.8 lens. This new mid-telephoto prime lens offers an extremely versatile, lightweight and compact telephoto prime lens solution with impressive, exceptionally sharp portraits photos. It costs $598, available for pre-order at Amazon/B&H/ Adorama. Read More »
