Pros:Sharpening even at full opening, speed af, construction
Cons:It's a little heavy, expensive, but otherwise nothing to report
Opinion:I have this optics in evidence for a short time but it is giving me excellent satisfaction. The autofocus is quiet and precise (even with eyeAF it does not miss a beat), very sharp even at full opening, between f/2.8 and f/5.6 is simply incredible. The construction is very good, the sense of solidity is there. The color rendering for my taste is very good. Personally I don't find faults (maybe it's a bit heavy, but used on Sony FF bodies is well balanced) except the price of the new maybe, like most Sony lenses.
Cons:Perhaps the price, chromatic rendering not always convincing
Opinion:It is an excellent lens in all respects. Sharp already at full opening, it has no particular optical defects, at least my specimen. The focus is very fast and the presence of the customizable button I find it a great plus. The body is light but gives a sense of solidity, I think the materials with which it is made (paraluce aside), are very good. Only small mole, maybe the price a little high, but surely, given the excellent yield, we soon forget about the outlay. I noticed then in some situations, a color rendering not really optimal, solvable in post production, but sometimes I find it a cold hair.
Pros:Small, light, very fast, crisp already at 1.8, relatively cheap
Cons:as far as I'm concerned, no one
Opinion:I think the list of pros and cons already says everything :) I was pleasantly surprised by the sharpness at 1.8 (I use it on R4) and the speed of focus in both afs and afc; even with the chase and focus on the eyes is pretty much perfect. If you like the focal point and don't need and/or want to carry the 1.4 bricks behind you, that's the lens for you
Pros:Light, balanced, no optical defects, sharp enough at 1.8, af precise, few or no chromatic aberrations. Feeling safe during the shoot
Cons:Color rendering a bit flat, sharpness at 1.8 not excellent but still good, expensive for what it offers. Kind of like Sony optics are painted aluminum, so in a few years I'm imagining it scratched. Scratch-sensitive lampshade because it is not painted
Opinion:A good lens that does what you'd expect from an 85mm. I use it for wedding photo reportage and some close up portraits and I have no valid reason to keep looking around. Af video great. The hairs in the egg that I can find: Bokeh good but nothing special, af photo precise but out of 10 photos a couple can get it wrong (and there it is), cold colors and complexions tending to brown, but you know that sony glasses are so for the most part... (I like the warm colors of canons and samyangs so they're biased) I didn't find any problems with flares. It would cost 400 euros (street price) would be better. The equivalent ef canon after 20 years still has much to say if compared to this one.
Pros:Maf perfect and fast. Customizable button. Footprint
Cons:Maybe price a little high
Opinion:I was undecided between this and other brands, in the end sony mom never denies it. Good robustness and weight and non-excessive footprint. I recommend it for those looking for a good lens 85 mm bright with good quality/price. The other 85mm f 1.4 according to my parry has too high a cost for what it offers more than this with diaphragm 1.8
