Canon lenses, macro light setup

In its current lineup, Canon has two portrait lenses. One is f/1.8 and the other is f/1.2. The just-announced Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is one of four lenses Canon has announced, as well as a macro-light setup.

The 85mm lens sits between its two current offerings for those who want the half-stop difference.

It uses 14 elements in 10 groups and includes a glass-molded aspherical element. The aperture is formed by nine blades, and Canon promises smooth bokeh.

The lenses are available in three mounts – Canon EOS, Nikon F and Sigma – and can be adapted to the Sony E-mount via Sigma’s own MC-11 converter.

Zeiss Loxia f/2.4 85mm

What's been missing from Zeiss’ Loxia line of manual-focus lenses for the Sony E-mount is a portrait lens.

It's missing no more, as Zeiss has filled that vacancy with a f/2.4 85mm lens.

While the lens is intended for the Sony full-frame A7 cameras, it also can be used on models with an APS-C sensor, where it becomes a 127.5mm full-frame equivalent.
