Sony FE 100mm F2.8 STF GM OSS & FE 85mm F1.8 are the new portrait lenses for full-frame E-mount cameras. We tried to get the first impressions and hands-on videos for these new prime lenses.

The Sony FE 85mm F1.8 is the company’s second entry into the budget-friendly F/1.8 prime lens category. On the other hand the FE 100mm F2.8 STF GM OSS lens becomes the fourth lens in G Master line-up.

Both lenses will start shipping from March. The FE 100mm F2.8 STF OSS GM telephoto prime has a price of $1,500 while the FE 85mm F1.8 lens will cost you for about $600.
