Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Review – Best Value for Money Sony Portrait Lens
85mm is my absolute favorite focal length when it comes to portraits: it perfectly preserves the subject’s physiognomy, it has great separation and it’s very versatile, allowing you to shoot both headshots, half-body and full-body portraits.
There was a time when Sony E-Mount shooters could only get two native solutions: the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM (1.800$) or the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 (1.200$). They’re both amazing lenses, but would you be willing to spend those big bucks if you’re just starting out or portraiture isn’t your main field?
If the answer is no, I’ve a great news for you: Sony has just released a 85mm at just $598, and I love it.
Let’s see why with my Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Review!
