    Best portrait lens ever!, November 20, 2007

    This review is from: Sony SAL-85F14Z 85mm f1.4 Carl Zeiss Planar T Coated Telephoto Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera (Electronics)

    The sharpness creamy bokeh are unmatched by any other alpha mount lens. The auto clutch is a fine addition, since this lens has some heft to it, so you’ll find yourself balancing the camera by the lens with your left hand. When it is in AF, the focusing ring doesnt turn. Nice. The colors are reproduced as true as any glass on the market. My only issue is minor, I wish the lens hood had a filter window, similar to the 70200SSM.
    Very fast focusing even in low light, but to really get the most out of it, mount it on the A700. It does tend to lag a tad in low light when mounted on the KM 7D.

    You’ll forget the hit to your pocketbook as soon as you print your first shot!

    This review is from: Sony SAL-85F14Z 85mm f1.4 Carl Zeiss Planar T Coated Telephoto Lens for Sony Alpha Digital SLR Camera (Electronics)

    The SAL85F14Z has been around for as long as the Sony Alpha 100, and for the few of us who is lucky enough (or have a deep enough pocket) to finally own it, the rewards are boundless.

    It is very difficult to describe the picture quality of this lens in a few words. For one thing, regardless of which alpha-mount body you have been using, this lens will unveil a whole new dimension of optical clarity to your camera’s sensor. The lens features a whole different level of optical clarity and sharpness over conventional alpha-mount lenses, combined with an effective defocusing so strong that during wider aperture settings, it practically captures your attention at the center of its focal point with razor sharp details while quickly blankets everything else away so vigorously that these elements quickly slide into this hazy blend of soft lights and shadows.

    When used at smaller apertures at F8 and beyond, the massive prime lens pinches every drop of incoming light so tightly across the entire diameter of its optics that every pixel of your camera’s digital sensor will struggle to capture all the details it has to provide. When used for landscape composition, the resulting details are so breathtakingly sharp from corner to corner that viewing the pictures on your computer monitor is nothing short of an insult to the makers of this lens.

    The SAL85F14Z is not without faults though, however. Without the use of a single (super) extra low dispersion glass (ED glass or Super ED glass) or any aspherical elements, at maximum aperture of F1.4, you will see color fringing while shooting under very bright sunlit conditions. There is visible purple bleed around high contrasting edges, but the fringe melts away quickly when you dial the aperture from F1.4 to around F2.2. The lens is also unsuitable for close-up work, with a minumum focusing distance of 85 cm and a maximum magnification ratio of just 0.15x. It’s immediate cousin, the SAL135F18 on the other hand, has a minimum focusing distance of around 70cm and has an impressive maximum magnification ratio of 0.25x.

    The SAL85F14Z is probably one of the heaviest prime lens under the alpha mount line-up, next to its above close cousin, the SAL135F18Z, which is even larger and weighs around 30 percent more. The construction of the lens however is nothing short of elegant, with large, finely polished glasses and precision-milled metal parts assembled probably by hand. There is not a single element on the SAL85F14Z that suggests a hint of frailty, and the lens looks and feels as though it is a piece of optical accessory taken out from an Aston Martin.

    A great investment for those who shoots portraits for a living.
