Product description

With the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 telephoto lens, you can take sharp portrait photos. The f/1.8 maximum aperture allows you to create a natural background blur, so you can really focus on the person you want to capture. Thanks to the large f/1.8 lens aperture, you can also take sharp photos in dark locations. The lens has a compact design and weighs 371 grams, so you can easily take it with you. This is specially useful if you often shoot on location. You don't have to worry about rain either, because the lens has dust and splash seals. The silent focus system makes this lens suitable for video recordings, as it ensures you won't hear any disruptive noises in your recordings.
