Sony 85mm F2.8 SAM
|I own it||I want it||I had it|
The Sony 85mm F2.8 SAM is a relatively inexpensive short telephoto prime lens, compatible with full-frame and APS-C format SLT cameras. This F2.8 prime isn't particularly fast, but is fast enough for decent subject/background separation when shooting portraits - definitely the main application for a lens of this type. Although considerably cheaper than its big brother, the 85mm F1.4 ZA Carl Zeiss Planar T*, this budget prime is more expensive than other Sony SAM lenses while its build quality is equally "low-rent."
