Sony SEL85F14GM FE 85mm f/1.4 GM

Hi everyone, Let me start by saying that I am a product photographer both studio and lifestyle. This week I received a new 85mm GM lens which I ordered to dedicate to my lifestyle shots. After a test photoshoot utilizing both 24-70 GM and the 85 GM lenses on my A7R3, what I started to notice in post was that the sharpness of these 2 lenses were nearly indistibuishable from one another. When I arrived home, I brought both lenses into my home studio to do some real testing. Ive never been a pixel peeper, but this time I just kind of fell into it. I set up the tripod, set my lights and began to do a comparison. 1. Bokeh goes to the 85mm (but not by as much as people brag about) 2. ease of use goes to the 24-70 3. Sharpness was a tie at every focal length except 70mm, Easy fix in Capture 1 4. 1.4 vs 2.8 goes to the 85mm 5. Contrast goes to the 24-70 ( you buy this lens to shoot wide open and the 24-70 has more contrast) 6. Color - tie (skin tones were nearly identical) 7. Focus goes to the 24-70, the 85 is slower and louder focusing, but it hunts a bit in lower light, also the noise it makes when shutting down the camera is unnerving. Verdict Im sending the 85mm back, Very nice lens but my 24-70 is just as nice and much more versatile. In conclusion, I think if you already have the 24-70, don't bother spending another 1800.00 for a lens that doesn't do much more than what you

EXCELLENT lense. Awesome bokeh, accurate focus, magnificent color rendering, Very sharp... it's a lense every portrait photographer dream and wish for. Well constructed product.

Pros: Extremely sharp, fantastic bokeh, magnificent color rendering.

Cons: Very well constructed. But, plastic. It's price is high. And, Regards it's weight, it's a kind of heavy. Other wise, IT'S AMASING !!! ??

THE best portrait lens, not just for Sony

Pro: Sharp wide open. THE best bokeh. Focus lock. Aperture ring great for video. Excellent build quality. Fast focus. Con: Expensive, a bit of too heavy. Regarding the focus noise others have been complaining about: It is not loud at all but audible from close distance. I guess it can be recorded while shooting video in a very quiet environment using the build in mic, but with a shotgun or any off cam mic, I don't see its a problem.
