Shooting with Sony’s latest portrait lenses
Without an APD element, oval-shaped bokeh balls are extremely evident on the Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS. However, in certain cases we actually prefer this effect. Combined with the barrel distortion, it makes the background look like it’s almost swirling around our model in this shot above.
Without an APD element, the FE 85mm f/1.8 also gains an extra stop of light over Sony’s latest G-Master lens that may come in handy for low-light shooting situations.
The Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 also comes later this March, but for a much more approachable $599 or £549.
