p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Now In Stock! FE 100mm f/2.8 GM STF and FE 85mm f/1.8


Sony has just introduced two new FE lenses: The most exciting is the new high-end Sony FE 100mm F2.8 OSS STF G Master lens which brings very smooth bokeh thanks to its apodization lens element and 11-blade aperture.

This lens incorporates a STF (smooth trans focus) design to allow smooth bokeh while maintaining very high resolution and contrast. The only downside is the T5.6 transmission making this lens optimum for outdoors or studio work. Look for availability this March and a price of $1,500.

Update: Now In Stock

The new budget friendly Sony FE 85mm F1.8 is lighter and more compact than the more expensive Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM. It's a also a cheaper alternative to the current Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8.
The lens features a quieter AF motor and should also available in March at $600.

Seems like these two lenses just got announced. No prices yet...

The 100/2.8 STF is a GM and the 85/1.8 a budget lens in line with the 50/1.8.

Thoughts?

The 100 uses a fancy AF system.... So I'm guessing it'll be fast and accurate.
The 85 has "Double Linear AF" motor. Is this internal AF? Will it be fast, or will it be like the 50/1.8FE?

Sounds like about the best kit possible. I love having a lens kit that consists of primes at divisible focal lengths (your 25/50/100), and even better when they are potentially the best lenses in their respective range possible.

Hopefully Sony will start to work on some decent wide-angle lenses, now that they have half a dozen different 50mm lenses and almost as many short telephotos - or perhaps they will leave that to Zeiss for the time being.

Some long glass would be nice, too...

I missed that the 100 was AF. I thought that was near impossible with an STF lens?

I believe the LInear Motors are like whats in the 55/1.8 etc. so sounds like it won't be like the 50/1.8, which is also probably why it's $600 and not more like $450.

The stf 100 is slower than the A mount 135 stf (T stop 5.6 & 4.5)....definitely an outdoors lens

Of course they announce this... I just bought the Batis 85mm last week!

(But I love it, so unless the FE 85mm can compete pretty damn closely W/O-- I'll probably just keep the Batis.)

I think it's more of a studio lens. This thing will be killer for portraits and product work.

The STF certainly sounds impressive, good to see them get AF and such a robust build. Shame about the speed but OSS helps.

The 85 1.8 seems interesting as well, hoping to see something closer to the 85mm 1.8 than the 50mm 1.8.

It's a T5.6 lens in order to get the STF effect and that it will never replace the GM 85/1.4 for low light shooting.
Completely different tools for different needs.

I'm hoping the new 100mm STF will have strong flare performance since that seems to be the biggest downfall of the current STF lenses in the market.

I can't tell if it has an manual aperture ring...is it locked at t5.6 or like the 135 goes from t4.5 to 6.7?

yes, i think that's going to be OK for me given my purposes (entirely outdoors), but i was hoping for a T-stop < 4 - so maybe it only lasts a year in the kit - certainly something i'll enjoy playing with for a while.
