The FE 85mm f/1.4 GM from Sony is a fast, short-telephoto lens designed for E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. Characterized by its 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.


A new dimension of portrait performance
Designed and built to the strictest precision standards, this lens offers magnificent imaging performance throughout the frame, right up to its widest F1.4 aperture setting.

Extraordinary detail and bokeh in one lens
An XA (extreme aspherical) element with 0.01 micron surface precision contributes to previously unachievable resolution and stunning bokeh for new expressive potential.

Natural images without spurious color
Three ED glass elements support the lens’s outstanding resolving power by suppressing chromatic aberration and minimizing artificial colouration throughout its aperture range.

Sublime 2-sensor autofocus accuracy
Two position sensors enhance the accuracy of an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system for autofocus performance that fully supports the lens’s high-resolution capability.

Professional lens control features
A focus mode switch, focus hold button, and aperture ring with switchable click stops provide professional control for a wide range of shooting situations.

Lens Configuration
G Master series lenses take imaging and expression to previously unattainable levels with a stunning blend of extremely high resolution and softly dissolving background bokeh.

MTF Chart
MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.
