World’s first Meike 85mm f/1.8 FE AF lens review by SonyAlphaBlog: “very good for the price”


The new lens is available at BHphoto, Amazon, Amazon DE, Amazon UK.

SonyAlphaBlog tested the new Meike 85mm f/1.8 FE AF lens and concluded:

The Meike 85mm F1.8 STM (200$) is a very good for the price. It provides very good results overall for portraits with very good sharpness in the centre ,very nice bokeh balls , color rendering and soft background blur. AF is good (80-90% accuracy)
Of course it will be more at ease on 24Mpix than on 61Mpix in term of sharpness
Some tradeoffs have been made. : full plastic body, AF that could be a little bit better (this should be possible with firmware upgrade), important vignetting, some CA and average resistance to flare, some loss of contrast with incident light, sharpness in the corners pretty average
Video rendering is also very good
Recommended on A7II / III for small budget
