A new dimension of portrait performance

The most advanced technology available has been applied in the G Master series, further enhancing acclaimed Sony G Lens performance. This model combines refined G Lens bokeh with new levels of resolution in a truly outstanding portrait lens that can fully utilize the performance potential of current and future high-resolution camera bodies.

Extraordinary resolution and bokeh

The outstanding resolution even at the maximum F1.4 aperture renders the subject with impressive dimensionality. Then gradual, gorgeous bokeh dissolves the background into an artistic backdrop with natural colouration and highlights. This rare combination, due in part to new XA element technology, opens up new vistas of visual expression.

Natural images with no spurious colour

Chromatic aberration can degrade resolution as well as bokeh quality. Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements make a significant contribution to this lens’s outstanding optical performance, keeping axial chromatic aberration in check while maximizing both clarity and the natural look and colour of its breathtaking bokeh.

Sublime 2-sensor autofocus accuracy

In addition to the usual rotation sensor, a second sensor detects a focus lens group position. This dual-sensor system achieves the extremely high level of focus precision that is necessary to make the most of the high-resolution potential of advanced camera bodies. SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive provides the required power and speed.

11 blades for luscious bokeh

Sony’s circular aperture design usually employs up to 9 blades. This is the first α lens to incorporate 11 blades in a circular aperture design, taking bokeh quality to new levels of smooth beauty with natural-looking highlights.

Outstanding clarity and contrast

Advanced Nano AR Coating technology produces a lens coating with a precisely defined regular nano-structure that effectively suppresses reflections that can cause flare and ghosting, for notable improvements in clarity, contrast, and overall image quality. (1. Nano AR Coating / 2.Glass / 3.Transmitted light)

Versatile fingertip focus control

The ability to respond quickly to rapidly changing shooting situations can mean the difference between getting the shot or not. A manual/autofocus mode switch and focus hold button are positioned for easy access, providing versatile, professional control for a wide range of subjects and environments.

Easy de-click for movies

While still shooters usually prefer the tactile feedback provided by click stops on the aperture ring, moviemakers favour smooth, quiet, click-free aperture operation. The click stops on this lens’s aperture ring can be easily turned on or off to suit still or movie shooting applications.

Hood lock and release

A hood lock mechanism prevents accidental hood detachment when moving from location to location, but a hood release button makes it easy to remove and replace the hood whenever necessary.

High reliability in harsh conditions

In addition to the normal dust and moisture sealing measures, a seal has been added at the lens-body interface for even further protection and reliability in challenging environments. Shoot with confidence in light rain or windy conditions.

The 85mm lens will obviously be a popular choice for portrait photographers. The focal length is ideal for this subject on both full-frame and APS-C cameras, with a 135mm equivalent field of view on the latter.

If only the Sony FE 85 mm f/1.4 GM cost about $700-$900 our summary would be very positive indeed, with many oohing and aahing over its performance. Unfortunately you have to pay as much as $1800 for the tested lens, the same amount of money as you have to spend for the Zeiss Milvus 1.4/85 which is...

Photography BLOG

The Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM is an outstanding prime lens for portraiture, offering a winning combination of sharpness and very appealing bokeh. Shooting at the maximum f/1.4 aperture does reveal a minor reduction in sharpness, but this is already resolved by f/2, and even at this aperture the lens is...

The Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 G Master lens is a traditionally very high quality choice. It is ideal for many more types of subject than portraits, although with the beautiful bokeh provided portraiture may well be high on the list for users of this lens.

Richard Sibley tests the new Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens.

PhotoReview

Optically and mechanically, this lens is certainly a very good performer and one of the best lenses we’ve tested to date. It is capable of delivering very sharp images at virtually any aperture setting and will focus very quickly and accurately.

What Digital Camera

Costing around £1500 the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM is one of the most expensive 85mm lenses on the market, but it’s also one of the best. On the evidence of using it on the 42-million-pixel A7R II, I see no reason why it won’t meet the demands of even higher resolution sensors that may come on the...

The Digital Picture

Sony calls it "The ultimate portrait prime" and, at least for Sony systems, I think they are right. The focal length is ideal for portraits (and a wide variety of other subjects) and there seems to always be enough light to photograph with this lens handheld.

OpticalLimits

The Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM is an excellent example of what a lens should look like in this class - albeit it is still not perfect. It is very sharp at f/1.4 and outstanding when stopped down to medium aperture settings. Lateral CAs are very low even without image auto-correction.

In my line of photographic work my go to lens is the 85mm, I recently changed systems over to Sony and purchased the 85mm f1.4 GM lens. This lens is so sharp with beautiful tone rendition and a fast f1.4 aperture. The Bokeh is fabulous from the 11 leaf aperture. This is a Killer lens!!

My only real complaint is the AF speed which resulted in some valuable shots missed. Otherwise it is a real gel.

There is no optically better 85mm lens than this Sony G Master. Its superb, even better than the classic 85mm Canon f1.2L, Nikon 85mm f/1.4, excellent Zeiss BATIS 85mm f/1.8 and MILVUS f1.4 and offerings from Sigma (Art), Tamron or Samyang.

This lens replaced a much loved f1.4 85mm A mount that I was using with the LA-EA5 adapter on my Sony A7R4, pleased it did as this one is sooooo much better in every respect which I was doubtful of, it certainly is deserving of the G Master badge & reputation!

Image quality is superb, but the autofocus could be better. It's fairly slow and noisy, feels a bit clunky. But for the superb image quality it's something that you may feel fine overlooking.
