Few optical points of view are more ideal with a full-frame Sony e-mount camera than the classic and much loved 85mm focal length. 85mm lenses fall into the very beginning of the short-telephoto focal range. Many pro photographers consider them to be ideal for applications that require high levels of bokeh, such as portraiture. While an 85mm lens will help you smooth out your background and lend a sort of 3D feel to your images, it's not so overpowering that you can't make out the background at all in most instances.

When designed specifically for close up work, an 85mm lens can also be a powerful tool for macro photography.

Here is a list of Ayrn hands-on reviews for some of the very best 85mm lenses for Sony FE with sample images, tests, features, specs, and more.
