Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this helpful video compares the Sony 85mm f/1.4 GM to the 85mm f/1.8. The former, being a G Master lens (much like Canon's L series), is expected to be as uncompromising as possible when it comes to optical quality and robust build, and that's obviously reflected in its price. On the other hand, the f/1.8 loses less than a stop from its bigger cousin and knocks over $1,000 off the price, which could make it a very viable alternative for those who are on a budget or simply don't have the need to justify dropping that much money on a portrait lens. For example, I know quite a few wedding photographers who choose to shoot with the f/1.8 version of their brand's 85mm lens both because the autofocus is typically faster and the lens is often much, much lighter, making it easier on someone who has to carry a lot of gear around all day. Check out the video above for the full comparison.
