The good: Superb quality. Great for portraits. The bad: It's heavy af, but I'd be okay with that. I'm not okay with how badly it performs in low-light/backlit scenarios. On a Sony A7Rii, shooting wide open at 1.4, with Auto ISO between 100-800, shooting AF-C, Lock On AF: Expand Flexible Spot, and...
I also have 70-200 GM and 24-70 GM. I didn't think they were that special and was actually disappointed by their mediocre performance considering how much Sony charges for these GM lenses. I previously used Canon equivalent Mark II L lenses.
an awesome lens in every way
Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
I am so thrilled with this lens. Tack sharp...love the focus hold button. Expensive but well worth it if you are looking for the very best in a portrait lens.
85mm is a great focal length for portraits, both head shots and to include a little more background, the FE 85 GM is one of the best on the market in my eye. The OOF rendering is so smooth and visually appealing.
I have the Sony 85 f/1.8 and also the Canon 85 f/1.2L lens.I am not going to write an extensive review here, i see that most have already been said. However, i did an extensive side by side with the Sony 85 f/1.8 and f/1.4 and the GM lens definitely have better image quality and shows significantly...
There is no optically better 85mm lens than this Sony G Master. Its superb, even better than the classic 85mm Canon f1.2L, Nikon 85mm f/1.4, excellent Zeiss BATIS 85mm f/1.8 and MILVUS f1.4 and offerings from Sigma (Art), Tamron or Samyang.
Produces a very beautiful image, much like the Canon 85 L-- though perhaps not quite as etherial. It is a little more consistently 'real' from that perspective. The downside is it's more suited for studio because the auto focus can be a little slow.
I use a Sony a7sii and a Sony Fs5 as my camera duo on almost every interview... And the A7sii with this 85mm at f/1.4 is as beautiful as any lens/camera combo I have ever worked with. The bokeh itself is amazing, but the edge to edge clarity it provides is absolutely stunning.
Finally a usable f1.4With my Nikon lenses I always avoided using them on 1.4 because I just cant get the eyes on focus every-time which annoys me.But with my new A7R III and the amazing eye focus feature. I JUST LOVE IT!The lens is very sharp, and it has amazing professional build quality.
