ThePhoblographer completed their full review of the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 lens, which is an ideal portrait-length lens characterized by its sleek form factor and impressive optical qualities for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. This Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 lens is now in stock and shipping in the US for $1,399 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

From ThePhoblographer:


  • Fantastic image quality
  • That modern classic Zeiss look
  • Weather sealing
  • Smooth but not limiting focus


  • Price point
  • Only f2.4


  • That specific, beautiful Zeiss lens character
  • Weather sealing
  • Smooth and satisfying focusing


  • A bit expensive.
  • Only f2.4.

It’s a manual focus option, and it’s also a very precise tool designed for a photographer to work in a different way. I truthfully can’t fault with it. Is it as sharp as the rest? Probably not, but in return it gives off a look I’d be hard pressed to get from a Sony.

My other qualm, while it makes focusing wide open easier, I really wanted an f2 or an f1.8 lens.
