The Rokinon AF SERIES II 85mm F1.4 for Sony E is the smallest (99.5mm/3.92in length) and lightest (509g/17.95oz weight) among all the large-aperture standard 85mm focal length lenses compatible with the Sony E mount.

The AF 85mm F1.4 E II (Large-Aperture Standard) lens delivers a 28.9˚ angle of view for full-frame & 19.1˚ for APS-C, as well as a bright maximum aperture of F1.4, as preferred by full-frame camera users. In particular, optimum resolution is achieved through the optical design of 11 elements in 8 groups (4 HR and 1 ED). Combined with Sony's full-frame image sensor, this lens delivers superior sharpness and contrast in all areas of the image.

Fast and Quiet AF Performance

Tracking the subject accurately and quickly, the AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video. Rokinon’s Linear STM (Stepping Motor) satisfies both photographers and videographers with quieter and more accurate control of the focusing lens groups.

Impressive Background Blur and Bokeh with Bright F1.4 Aperture

The AF 85mm F1.4 E II uses a large-diameter aperture to provide smooth background blur. It effectively separates the subject from the background, using a shallow depth of field and adding drama to the scene. The 9 diaphragm blades create smooth and natural bokeh with light splitting.

Less Breathing for Shooting Video

The AF 85mm F1.4 E II has minimized focus breathing, so there is almost no change in the angle of view when focusing and therefore less screen shake. This is effective when shooting movies with the subject moving forward or backward, or focusing from the front or back.

Enhanced Usability with Custom Switch and Focus Hold Button

There is a custom switch, which can be set allow adjustment of the aperture by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station, you can setup the mode to suit your own preference*.

* More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future

Customizable Focus-Hold Button Pressing and holding this button will keep the lens locked at the auto-focused distance. The user can also assign to the focus hold button other desired functions through the Custom Key Settings menu of the camera.

Short Minimum Focal Distance

The minimum focal distance is just 0.85m (2.79ft), so it is versatile and possible to produce a unique perspective close to the subject. This makes it easier to take close-up and dramatic shots of food, portraits and nature.

Weather-Sealing Design

The usability of the AF 85mm F1.4 E II lens has been developed and enhanced, taking into consideration not only the design but also the user's shooting environment. It has a micro-patterned rubber focus ring, so feels great to operate and weather-sealing also protects the lens from light rain, snow and dust.

Features

A Perfect Match to Compact Sony Mirrorless Cameras

Unprecedented Resolution in a Smaller & Lighter 85mm

The AF 85mm F1.4 E II is the lightest lens (509g/18.0oz weight) among all the large-aperture 85mm focal length lenses compatible with the Sony E mount, so it's even a perfect match to compact Sony mirrorless cameras with a gimbal. Not only superb resolution but also weight is important when shooting portraits. Especially in a handheld shooting environment, the benefit of the lightweight lens is huge, so innovative technology was needed to combine resolution and weight at the same time. The Rokinon AF 85mm F1.4 E II is lighter than other 85mm lenses compatible with full-frame Sony E mount, but it expresses the subject with clear image quality.

Excellent Resolution and Expression of Large Aperture F1.4

Outstanding Center Resolution & Color

The 4 HR (High Refractive) and 1 ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements of this new AF 85mm F1.4 E II provide a stunning contrast and resolution, and its center resolution is superior to other comparable expensive telephoto lenses. Rokinon's advanced coating technology not only maintains excellent image sharpness even in poor lighting conditions but also the AF 85mm F1.4 E II provides a clearer image with an improved Color Contribution Index (CCI).

Extremely Clean & Beautiful Bokeh

F1.4 large-diameter aperture maximizes the extremely narrow depth of field expression. Its smooth blurred background can make subjects stand out in images and natural bokeh provides an artistic view. The AF 85mm F1.4 E II is the only E mount lens that does not feature even a single aspherical glass. If an aspherical glass is used to improve its optical performance, there should be onion rings in the bokeh, which is a negative factor in the bokeh evaluation. Since the AF 85mm F1.4 E II does not feature any aspherical glass in its elements, it has clear and beautiful bokeh!

Improved AF Performance for Both Photographers & Videographers

Faster, Quieter and More Precise Auto Focus Performance

Rokinon’s Linear Stepping Motor (STM) provides the high-thrust efficiency needed for fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking, thus maximizing the advantages of Sony E-Mount cameras. Compared to the previous AF 85mm F1.4 E, this new AF 85mm F1.4 E II is optimized for not only photo shooting but also video shooting by minimizing vibration and noise. Tracking the subject accurately and quickly, the AF also operates quietly and smoothly when shooting video.

Short Minimum Focal Distance 0.85m (2.79ft)

Minimum focal distance is just 85cm (2.79ft), so it produces impressive close-ups, even capturing small details, at very close to the subject. With a short minimum focal distance and large aperture of the AF 85mm F1.4 E II, you can get close-ups by highlighting the subject with a smoothly expressed background!

Focus Hold Button

Pressing this button on the lens will keep the lens locked to that focusing distance. You can assign functions such as Eye AF in settings on the camera body.

Custom Switch

There is a custom switch, which can be set to allow adjustment of the aperture silently, by rotating the focus ring. Using the optional Lens Station, you can set up the mode to suit your own preference*.
• MODE 1 : Operates with focus control function (MF, DMF mode)
• MODE 2 : Operates with aperture control function (AF mode)

*More functions will be added through firmware updates in the future.
