Yongnuo will soon announce the new 85mm f/1.8 FE autofocus lens. This will be their second E-mount lens after the 50mm f/1.8 APS-C (here on Amazon).

Here is the google translated text from an original Chinese text I received:

Small size, lightweight design
The maximum diameter and length of the lens is about 67×88mm, and the net weight is only about 346g. The lightweight design is good for long-term handheld shooting and video recording.

Equipped with Fn function key

Compared with traditional DC motors, digitally controlled stepping motors ( DSM ) have quick start-stop response, high focusing accuracy, and quieter focusing action, which is suitable for photo shooting and video recording.

F 1.8 large aperture
Flexible use of F1.8 large aperture, easy to obtain soft blur effect, can also use low sensitivity and higher shutter to shoot in low light environment.

9 optical lenses in 8 groups, nano multilayer coating
It adopts 8 groups and 9 -element optical structure design, and the lens nano-multilayer coating process , which effectively improves the light transmittance and suppresses the ghost image and glare of backlight .

Low dispersion lens
Employed . 1 Mei low-dispersion glass lens, can be suppressed to better dispersion problems.

7 circular aperture blades
The 7- piece circular aperture blade design can produce circular diffuse spots, and a proper reduction of the aperture can also produce a 14- star effect.

Metal bayonet, gold-plated contacts
The use of high-precision metal bayonet and gold-plated contacts effectively improves signal conductivity and corrosion resistance, and is durable. At the same time, it allows the camera and lens to maintain reliable communication, and realizes functions such as autofocus, aperture control, and EXIF information transmission.
