Sony 85mm F2.8 SAM

Telephoto prime lens | Sony/Minolta Alpha | SAL-85F28

Part of the easy choice range, this lens is great value for money. Nice and sharp when you want it to be, very pleasing bokeh, good length on APS C for more discrete portraits at a distance. This range of lenses comes under fire for its plastic bodies, particularly the plastic mounts - but optical properties are generally excellent and the plastic body is light and compact for an 85mm. Note, this is a full frame lens but works well on APS C including NEX bodies via the official adaptor. Problems:
