What Is the Best 85mm Prime Lens for Sony Shooters?

There is certainly no dearth of wide-aperture 85mm lenses for Sony shooters, and given the popularity and versatility of such a lens, it is great to have so many options. This fantastic video review compares five of the best choices to help you figure out which is right for your needs.

Coming to you from Hyun Ralph Jeong, this great video review compares five wide-aperture 85mm lenses for Sony shooters, including:

A good 85mm lens is a staple of almost every portrait photographer’s kit, and thankfully, these lenses range in from anywhere from about $600 to a shade under $2,000, and within that price range, you can find a wide range of image quality and desirable attributes, such as smooth and unobtrusive bokeh. One thing that I think does not get discussed enough is the benefit of a compact footprint and light weight. If, for example, you are a wedding shooter lugging around a bag of lenses for 12-14 hours, you may very much prefer the extra weight savings of an f/1.8 lens over gaining less than a stop of aperture with an f/1.4 lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
