  • Description

    I have a soft spot for the 85mm focal length. I find its perspective comfortable both for portraits and general photography. This 85mm is at the top of the class! The Planar T* 1.4/85 is optimized for medium to longer distances and provides distortion-free performance that only improves as the lens is stopped down. The f/1.4 maximum aperture is very useful for creatively controlling the depth of field and the nearly circular diaphragm creates a pleasing bokeh in the out-of-focus areas. Wide open, the selective focus provides striking images in which the subject stands off from both the foreground and background. The photos have a luminosity that is close to breathtaking. If used on a digital SLR with a 1.5 crop factor, the lens has an effective focal length of 128mm. While not inexpensive, with its exemplary performance, the Planar T* 1.4/85 represents a wise investment.

    Manual focusing remains nonpareil: silky smooth, precise, and with just enough throw and resistance to fine-tune the image. Unquestionably, this superb manual focus ability will attract the critical eye of high-definition videographers as well as photographers, but it is the optical performance that will win their hearts.
