Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM Telephoto Prime Lens
Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM G Master Telephoto Prime Lens SUMMARY
|Product features in detail|
The Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM telephoto prime lens utilises a new XA (Extreme Aspherical) element and 3 ED glass elements that guarantee in-focus areas are captured in incredible resolution, and out of focus areas are smooth and beautiful.
It uses the most blades ever found in a Sony zoom lens for smooth and attractive bokeh, and it has been treated with Sonyâ€™s Nano AR Coating which minimises ghosting and flare, particularly in backlit situations.
The ring drive SSM motor system ensures it has plenty of speed and power to drive its heavy, large focus group, and it has 2 position sensors that support perfect focus control of the heavy, large lens elements.
The FE85mm is both dust and moisture-resistant and features an aperture ring with on / off switchable click stops that are adjustable depending on whether you are using movies or still images, as well as an AF/MF switch and a focus hold button.

|The technology behind G Master|
A new dimension of portrait performance
The most advanced technology available has been applied in the G Master series, further enhancing acclaimed Sony G Lens performance. This model combines refined G Lens bokeh with new levels of resolution in a truly outstanding portrait lens that can fully utilize the performance potential of current and future high-resolution camera bodies.
Extraordinary resolution and bokeh
Outstanding resolution even at the maximum F1.4 aperture renders the subject with impressive dimensionality. Then gradual, gorgeous bokeh dissolves the background into an artistic backdrop with natural colouration and highlights. This rare combination, due in part to new XA element technology, opens up new vistas of visual expression.
Natural images with no spurious colour
Chromatic aberration can degrade resolution as well as bokeh quality. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements make a significant contribution to this lens’s outstanding optical performance, keeping axial chromatic aberration in check while maximizing both clarity and the natural look and colour of its breathtaking bokeh.
Sublime 2-sensor autofocus accuracy
In addition to the usual rotation sensor, a second sensor detects focus lens group position. This dual sensor system achieves the extremely high level of focus precision that is necessary to make the most of the high-resolution potential of advanced camera bodies. SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive provides the required power and speed.
11 blades for luscious bokeh
Sony’s circular aperture design usually employs up to 9 blades. This is the first α lens to incorporate 11 blades in a circular aperture design, taking bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty with natural looking highlights.
Outstanding clarity and contrast
Advanced Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating with a precisely defined regular nano-structure that effectively suppresses reflections that can cause flare and ghosting, for notable improvements in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality.

Versatile fingertip focus control
The ability to respond quickly to rapidly changing shooting situations can mean the difference between getting the shot or not. A manual/auto focus mode switch and focus hold button are positioned for easy access, providing versatile, professional control for a wide range of subjects and environments.
Easy de-click for movies
While still shooters usually prefer the tactile feedback provided by click stops on the aperture ring, moviemakers favor smooth, quiet, click-free aperture operation. The click stops on this lens’s aperture ring can be easily turned on or off to suit still or movie shooting applications.
Hood lock and release
A hood lock mechanism prevents accidental hood detachment when moving from location to location, but a hood release button makes it easy to remove and replace the hood whenever necessary.
High reliability in harsh conditions
In addition to the normal dust and moisture sealing measures, a seal has been added at the lens-body interface for even further protection and reliability in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.
