Sony announced the 85mm F2.8 SAM (model SAL85F28) light, compact full-frame prime, A-mount lens, ideal for portraits.

The new 85mm F2.8 SAM (SAL85F28) lens is a full-frame lens in that offers performance and affordability for use with Sony's Alpha (α) DSLR cameras. The 85mm focal length is a standard for portraiture because of the natural perspective that it provides. On an APS-C sensor camera the 85mm F2.8 SAM functions as a 127.5mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto lens — and features a Sonnar-type optical design that is considered ideal for mid-range telephoto lenses.

The lens is sharp center to corner, and features smooth defocusing thanks to its large F2.8 maximum aperture and circular aperture design. At two feet, the minimum focusing distance is the shortest in its class, and SAM motor technology ensures smooth autofocus operation.

The quality optical and mechanical features of the lens mean it is suitable for serious photography and should more than satisfy intermediate and advanced users alike.

Pricing and Availability
The Sony 85mm F2.8 SAM (model SAL85F28) lens will be available in October for about $250.
