The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Prime - E-Mount is a well-designed mid-range telephoto prime lens for portraiture, with exceptional sharpness and smooth bokeh. Features ED glass for chromatic aberration compensation, a 9-blade circular aperture, and carefully controlled spherical aberration. A compact, lightweight design offers optimum mobility, with high-performance optics and a large f/1.8 maximum aperture that deliver outstanding image quality.

The lens features a double linear motor system directly drives the lens focus mechanism without intervening gears for precise, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills. A customizable focus hold button, wide and responsive focus ring, dust and moisture-resistant design*, and other refinements make this an excellent second lens for both full-frame and APS-C camera users.

High Corner-to-Corner Resolution

A precision optical design includes one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element to effectively minimize chromatic aberration, while spherical aberration is tightly controlled for high overall sharpness with smooth bokeh when required.

Beautiful Bokeh

Spherical aberration is carefully optimized to achieve the best possible balance between resolution and smooth, natural bokeh that can provide a perfect backdrop for a wide range of subjects, while a 9-blade circular aperture contributes to beautiful bokeh highlights. 85mm is often a photographer's first choice for shooting portraits.

Mobile & Manageable

A compact, lightweight design (0.69 lb / 371 g) is ideally matched to the α7 series, offering a great balance of portability to high image quality for portraits, events, and more.

Rugged Reliability

A sealed dust and moisture-resistant design* provides extra protection and ensures reliable operation in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.


*NOTE: This lens is not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture-proof.
