Photographers often choose a large-aperture 85mm lens for portraits for two compelling reasons. First, the 85mm focal length makes it easy to fill the frame with the subject from a comfortable distance, without getting so close that unflattering distortion occurs. And second, a large maximum aperture works with the medium-long focal length to create beautifully defocused backgrounds, so that the subject seems to “pop” out of the image. The SAL85F28 is just such a lens. But it’s not just limited to portraits. It’s a great choice for any situation where you want a bit more magnification than a “standard” focal length provides. And the fact that it is light and compact means that it’s easy to take along as a second lens.
