The Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM Lens (SEL85F14GM) is one of the new, beautifully crafted G MASTER range of lenses. Full frame coverage telephoto prime lens designed to compliment the Sony A7 collection of cameras. Designed specifically for full-frame, the lens sits in the company’s G Master (GM) professional lenses, which represents the best performing group of lenses that Sony has ever made. Designed and built to the strictest precision standards, this lens offers superb optical performance throughout the frame, right up to its widest f1.4 aperture setting. A focus mode switch, focus hold button, and aperture ring with switchable click stops provide professional control for a wide range of shooting situations. Offers stunning optical clarity and speed with a fantastic bokeh. Suited to professional portrait photographers. Advance features include an 11 blade aperture (renders the surrounding out-of-focus area smoothly), super-fast auto-focus and Dust and moisture resistant.
A superb focal length for portraiture, the FE 85mm f/1.4 GM from Sony is a fast, short-telephoto lens designed for E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. Offering flattering perspective and fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is adept at isolation focus for shallow depth of field effects, as well as performing in low-light conditions. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and one XA (extreme aspherical) element, which significantly controls spherical aberrations for a high degree of image sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Nano AR coating has been applied to limit ghosting and lens flare for increased contrast and colour fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Pairing a bright f/1.4 aperture with a short-telephoto focal length, this 85mm lens is ideally suited for portraiture and other situations where focus control is paramount.
Complementing the optical assets, this lens is also notable for its inclusion of an 11-blade circular diaphragm to produce smooth, soft-edged bokeh with selective focus imagery. For controlling focus, a linear SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) is employed that is quick and quiet, and also lends more responsive control for manual focus operation. The lens also sports a dust- and moisture-sealed design to support shooting in inclement conditions and a dedicated focus hold button, AF/MF switch, and manual aperture ring lend further control while shooting.
The Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM G Master lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations. Additionally, these lenses feature robust and intuitive-to-handle physical designs to benefit both photography and cine applications. Also compatible with APS-C models where it will provide a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
One XA element is incorporated into the optical design, which features superior surface precision for effective control over astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other spherical aberrations. Three extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the lens design and help to reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved clarity and colour neutrality. A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and colour rendering in strong lighting conditions.
A linear SSM system and internal focus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contributes to more natural, intuitive manual focus control. Dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberised control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures. Manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications.
