Pros: Sharpness, size and weight, blurry, autofocus, customizable button, solid construction, MAF ring

Cons: Price (?), stabilization (but having us in the car...)

Opinion: Taken to match with a A7III since the focal is the one I prefer for portraiture. Initially undecided between this and the Batis, after some reflection I chose to save by opting for the Sony (exploiting the cashback I took it home for €500). Choice even if comparing it with the competition is perhaps a little ' too expensive. Anyway, I tried it at an event and it was immediately love. Also crisp to TA (pure too), precise and silent AF and low weight. Very useful the button on barrel that I immediately assigned to the eye-AF function. I also really like the ring nut to focus in manual but the construction in general is rather pleasant to the touch, gives a sense of solidity. Blurry very but very enjoyable. I'm sure it will give me great satisfaction:)

Pros: Sharpness and excellent performance already from TA (has a very three-dimensional yield), fast and silent autofocus (performs well in situations of very low brightness), size and weight

Cons: Blurred in particular nervous and unpleasing situations (blurred foliage in the foreground, trees close to the subject), perhaps some purple chromatic aberration of too

Opinion: My favorite lens: really a blade for great portrait photographs, with a superabundant sharpness on the Sony a7iii. The bokeh in general is very pleasant but as said does not go very well with the presence of trunks and foliage: sometimes becomes confused and nervous. The almond light points in the blurred are a characteristic of the lens: For me it is not a defect, are pleasing anyway, although I prefer the circular ones. It has the merit of being very manageable, so that at the moment I take it for a walk during most of the exits "for tourism", along with the zoom 16-35. I really like colors, they are beautiful neutral and I prefer them to those of Samyang lenses (which are warmer). For the price, which I think is fairly fair, I recommend without a doubt the purchase.

Pros: Light, Sharp

Cons: Non-tropicalized, autofocus not at the top (for video)

Opinion: Bought from 2 weeks, lens to which I pointed for a while, coupled with my Sony A7III in photo mode the lens behaves superlatively, excellent sharpness even to TA, in video did not satisfy me much.. NOTE: After 1 week from the purchase there has already deposited dust in the second internal lens, this thing I find absurd because the lens I used only 3 times and at home. I went to the dealer where I bought it and I told him if he could change it, at my request I received only a laugh in the face, told me that being non-tropicalized could not do absolutely anything, so now I have to keep the lens so, but it I find it absolutely unacceptable that after 2 weeks there is already some internal dust, note only negative for this factor. For the rest I already knew what I was meeting so I do not complain.

Pros: Sharp, light

Cons: Chromatic aberrations, nervous bokeh, price

Opinion: With this lens the spark was not taken, resolute after 2 months. It's an honest 85 F 1.8 But I was used to the 56 F 1.2 Fuji and landed at Sony I was looking for a worthy heir. I was a little disappointed. At the price to which it is proposed maybe I expected more, in several shots I noticed very annoying AC, backlight a sharp drop in contrast, and the bokeh too nervous and with the almond light points that I personally do not like. Purchased used probably the value for money improves. In my opinion more suitable for the series A7 smooth than R, I find more resolvent the Tamron 28 -75.

Pros: Lightness, cost

Cons: Resolve, Bokeh

Opinion: I have owned several 85 and in one of the various stages I purchased this 85 looking for something light and that was fully supported by Sony (especially the focus on the eye). The lens is light, small, well-built. It is also one of the less expensive lenses of the Sony system, albeit far more expensive than the Canon counterpart. I resolute it right away because of the optical characteristics. The resolution is too low for R series sensors, and perhaps more suitable for the A7 series "Smooth". It shows obvious limits also to f2.8, perhaps because the Sigma lenses, albeit stratosferically heavier, had accustomed me well in terms of quality already open. From the point of view of the resolve does not make the Canon regret, however, much less expensive (although not comparable, because adapted). Also, the bokeh has features that I don't like: it has a character that doesn't belong to me. I much prefer the Canon to that effect. I landed at Batis, which is another world in terms of resolve, albeit not at Sigma levels. The weight and size are just higher than the Sony and the Canon, but definitely not even comparable to the Sigma. Obvious: The price range changes considerably.
