Varun Shukla says:

Hey Hi , Which budget Len you will suggest for Portrait on Sony A6000 as I bought few days ago please help me out as it will be my first lens

Rey Tano says:

I’m confused. Which one should I get? Sony Zeiss 55mm 1.8 or Sony 85mm 1.8 for a6500? I will use it mainly for portraits.

John Gilchrist says:

I’ve had this lens about a year now. And I think there’s no sharper lens for the crop sensor bodies.

Mohanlal D says:


Your video quality and the content are great as always. The presentation is also good. Will I get a SEL 35mm ? 😀 😀 😀 I love the quality of this 85mm lens.

Dustin Burns says:

I have this lens I love it on my A6500! I live in San Antonio and we have been getting a lot of sun lately so I’ll be sure to be doing more outdoor portraits!! Thanks for this vid!

iamluite says:

Probably gonna get this as I had a a6500 and just got a 2nd hand A7II. Should work nice for both 🙂

Jorge Rangel says:

Please review the Samyang/rokinon 85mm f1.4! And keep the good work

I’ve been wanting this lens!

Kyle Stewart says:

Hey man, I’ve got an a6300 on the way. It’s my first actual camera and I’m very excited about it. My girlfriend and I are going to Vegas pretty soon and I want to get one lens that can do just about anything well. I may be able to buy two new lenses before we end up leaving but just in case I can’t, I was thinking about possibly getting this 85mm to be my first non-kit lens. Now, I know that the 35mm will be better indoors and more of an all around, wider shooter but I think that most of the photos I take on that trip will be out on the strip and such anyway. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

TheGomezIndustries says:

Can you try the 85mm f1.4 G Master on the A6500?

Minhaj Malik says:

I would like to know what watch you are wearing. Orient?

Agent Soshi says:

That thing looks pretty short, which is nice

Daniel TK says:

how about mentioning in the title that its reviewed on a crop body for those of us who know you have the full frame camera too…

Probe Rok says:

Do you have a full frame??

Andry Pulma says:

Please review the new tamron 28-75 F2.8 Di III for sony E mount

Bryan Auer says:

Great lens but… its really a 136mm f2.9 lens on crop sensor (Not 136mm 1.8) I Know Im splitting hairs here… but… oh who cares, Its an epic lens! 100% exactly like my Ziess only its better AF!

Logan Gilley says:

Would this be a good prime to compliment my 24-105?

Alacrity says:

Great overview! Could you do a pixel peeping comparison between this on the Sony 50mm?

Peter Perämäki says:

How is the weather sealing against rain or snow?

JPM.Cuisine says:

It’s a nice lens

N0rdman says:

I love the 135mm focal length for FF and also the 85mm, so this lens seem to be a dream for all Sony shooters.
Thank you for the review!

Jason Elmore says:

I was about to pull the trigger until you told me it has no mechanical autofocus.

Dadang Kasharyadi says:

Another nice review on a6000. I love it
Could you please make a review on a6000 with a 28-70mm sony full frame.
Thank you
