Soft, smooth bokeh makes subjects pop

ZEISS® quality extends from exceptional clarity to gorgeous background bokeh that can make in-focus subjects really stand out. A 9-blade circular aperture works with this lens’s F1.4 maximum aperture to produce beautifully smooth background bokeh with natural highlights when desired.

Easy, consistent focusing and control

Handling is enhanced by a focus hold button right on the lens barrel that provides convenient fingertip focus lock control, and a wide focus ring that is easy and comfortable to operate. The fact that the focus ring does not rotate during autofocus operation improves handling too.

Clear images in low light

With its large F1.4 maximum aperture the SAL85F14Z is a great choice for hand-held shooting in low light. Its low-light capability is further reinforced when used with a camera that features SteadyShot INSIDE, the in-camera image stabilization system that effectively compensates for camera shake in a wide range of shooting situations.

ZEISS® T* coating

ZEISS® lenses are renowned for their outstanding color reproduction and contrast. The ZEISS® T* coating is an important contributing factor, effectively suppressing spurious reflections that can degrade overall image quality. Flare and ghosting are reduced for enhanced color and contrast that give images a deep, three-dimensional feel.
