Product Features in Detail
High corner-to-corner resolution
This compact, easy-to-handle lens offers fine prime lens performance with 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 enhances portraits
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. 85 mm is often a photographer's first choice for people and portraits.
Mobile and manageable for active shooting
A compact, lightweight design that is ideally matched to the α7 series offers a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events and more. Even though the SEL85F18 features and advanced optical design add up to impressive overall performance, its 371-gram (13.1-ounce) weight makes it a great choice for active, on-the-go shooting.
Quiet, precise focus drive
A double linear motor actuator system directly drives the lens's focus mechanism without noisy intervening gears, for precision positioning and quiet operation that are great for movies as well as stills.
Quality build, versatile features
A customizable focus hold button can be assigned to other functions such as Eye AF, for example, while a wide, responsive focus ring offers improved manual focus comfort and precision. A dust- and moisture-resistant design plus other refinements add up to outstanding quality and photographic versatility.
Reliable in challenging conditions
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.
