Sony 85mm f/1.4 Carl Zeiss Planar T* SAL-85F14Z
(From Sony lens literature) Get gorgeous intimate or low-light portraits, fashion shots, and quick candid photographs with superior visual accuracy with the Carl Zeiss SAL-85F14Z lens.
A brilliant lens for portraits, low light and midrange telephoto shooting. It's a beautiful piece of glass -- and for intimate or low-light portraits, fashion shots, and quick candid photographs with superior visual accuracy, this professional lens will satisfy the most uncompromising demands. Its performance at fully open aperture is astonishingly precise -- and its 35mm-equivalent 125.7mm focal length gives you sharp midrange close-ups and natural, distortion-free portraits at relaxed distances.
Superb Sharpness at Fully Open Aperture: In conjunction with the Super SteadyShot image stabilization system of the Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A100 camera, this superb Carl Zeiss lens achieves pinpoint sharpness -- even working with hand-held camera by available light.
Excellent Contrast Reproduction: Precision optical design and advanced T* coatings help to reduce flare and increase contrast.
Smooth Backgrounds: Smooth, visually pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds give portraits and close-ups an extra dimension of beauty.
Focus Hold Button: For full creative control, a focus hold button located on the lens can lock auto-focusing even in continuous advance mode -- and focus lock can also be set on the spot-focus center frame area.
Auto Clutch: In auto-focus mode, the manual focus ring does not rotate -- and in manual focusing, you'll have a solid, hands-on feel.
