The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
Designed for Sony's full-frame range of mirrorless cameras, it's also equally at home on its APS-C cameras. This fairly chunky optic nonetheless only weighs in at a pretty modest 371g thanks to a predominantly plastic construction, but balanced really nicely on the Alpha A7R II we tested it with. The design is very clean - so much so that there's no distance or DOF scales, but those niggles aside, it's a cracking portrait lens. Focusing is nice and brisk while the nine-blade diaphragm delivers to really beautiful bokeh. Optically, there's little to fault it on either - it's incredibly sharp at the centre of the frame through the aperture range. If you can't justify one of the more exotic Sony portrait lenses, this is a great option.
The Sony 85mm F/1.8 can reach the highest levels of sharpness, fully maximizing the 42 megapixels of the Sony A7rii/A7riii sensor when stopped down to F4 – 5.6 range.
The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 delivers surprisingly good performances, ticking all the must-have requirements for a portrait lens: beautiful bokeh, consistent sharpness & reduced distortions. Sony has finally given us a budget-friendly 85mm lens, with just little compromises.
Sony mirrorless photographers have a lot of options in the 85 to 100mm focal range, and they're all good lenses. Choosing one may be difficult, but the FE 85mm F1.8 certainly wins out on price, coming in at about half the cost of the Zeiss Batis 1.8/85, and bettering it in sharpness.
The Sony FE 85mm f1.8 is a short-telephoto prime lens for Sony's mirrorless cameras, and corrected for use on full-frame bodies.
the Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 lens is small, light-weight and best of all, affordable. And I need to mention this again – razor sharp! Focusing is fast.
