AstrHori has announced the release of a new 85mm F1.8 autofocus lens for full-frame Sony E-mount camera systems.
The lens is constructed of nine elements in eight groups and uses multi-layer coatings to minimize flaring and ghosting. It features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, has an aperture range of F1.8 through F16, and has a .8m (31”) minimum focusing distance.
The lens uses AstrHori’s Stepping Motor (STM) to drive autofocus, which it says is fast enough to keep up with Sony’s array of face- and eye-tracking AF modes. Below is a full list of cameras AstrHori says it’s compatible with:
Full Frame: FS7, FS7M2, FS5, FS5M2K, A7, A7II, A7R, A7RII, A7S, A7SII, A7III, A7RIII, A7RIV, A9, A9II, A7m3, etc.
