Upload & Sell: On
I have already mentioned it in the FE images thread, but this seems to be the right place for that information.
I have just received the Sony FE 1.8/85 and started my rolling review: https://phillipreeve.net/blog/review-sony-fe-85-mm-1-8/
- Build quality feels solid and appropriate
- Size-wise, it's a perfect match for the A7, very well balanced
- AF is fast, reliable and quiet
- Very sharp wide open at distances from headshot to infinity. Seems to be a little softer at close focusing distances.
- Moderate LoCA, but purple fringing at contrast edges, also in the middle and especially in the sharp area.
- Bokeh has got some structure, not bad but nothing to rave about so far
- No Distortion at all, have to double check that without electronic contact.
- Intense flaring and ghosting with the sun in the frame
So far, it matches it's price point very well. Sharpness is really good, the flare performance could be limiting for landscape work.
Further examinations coming soon..
