The Sony® FE 85mm f/1.8 lens is a mid-range, high-quality E-mount lens ideal for the Sony ILX-LR1 Industrial Camera. This superb, lightweight lens has a bright F1.8 aperture, ED glass for chromatic aberration compensation, and a linear motor for precise, motorized focusing.

Unsurpassed Visual Clarity

The Sony FE 85mm lens' F1.8 maximum aperture offers stunning contrast and resolution for full-frame E-mount bodies like the Sony ILX-LR1 Industrial Camera, used for UAV drone surveillance and inspection.

A big, bright maximum aperture = outstanding sharpness and clarity when shooting handheld or from a UAV drone in low-light conditions.

ED Glass Lens Elements 

The precision lens design offers high corner-to-corner resolution. Using ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, the resulting picture has minimal chromatic aberration, or "color fringing," which is unwanted color outlining on the edges of objects. This glass takes full advantage of the Sony ILX-LR1's 61MP sensor, providing sharp, high-resolution images with distinct definitions between objects.f

Manual and Auto Focus Options

A quiet, linear motor allows the lens to auto-focus quickly and precisely. This is ideal for UAV applications where lens-and-camera-mounted drone moves even while hovering.

9-Blade Circular Aperture

The nine-blade circular aperture works with the lens optics to produce a smooth 'bokeh' effect (an out-of-focus background and natural, sharp foreground target). This aperture style avoids the unattractive polygonal shapes created by conventional flat-sided blades in other lenses.

Dust and Moisture Resistant

This lens is designed to withstand dust and moisture, making it ideal for rugged outdoor use. It pairs perfectly with weather-resistant cameras for even better protection.
