If you’re considering the Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM, you’ll want to see the results.
With images up to 24 megapixels and many large crops, all from f/1.4 to f/11. View the 6048 size (24 megapixels) at f/1.4 on a late 2015 iMac 5K for a thrill.
The finely detailed test scene at far focus distance is an exceptionally demanding subject that makes mincemeat of most lenses, mercilessly revealing every weakness, lack of symmetry, etc. Most lenses require f/5.6 or f/8 to sharpen the whole mosaic, or at least f/4.
But the Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM delivers a jaw-dropping performance, one matched by only a handful of lenses over years of shooting this target. It’s not so much peak performance as the incredibly consistent performance.
Note that autofocus should be checked as to whether it actually achieves optimal focus, based on my shooting today.
