Yongnuo 85mm F/1.8 Sony (E-mount)

Finally, Yongnuo announces several E-mount lenses (for Sony cameras), the 50mm f/1.8 as well as the 85mm f/1.8. Let’s start by talking about the second lens: the 85mm F1.8S DF DSM (the 50mm F/1.8S DA DSM can be found here). Moreover, we can notice a new logo/name on the Yongnuo lenses: YnLens.

As we hoped, Yongnuo finally released the Nikon version of its 85mm F/1.8 lens. The Canon version was released a little over two years ago (February 2017), so it’s a long wait in between (Yongnuo used to wait six months/one year before releasing the same lens in the Nikon mount). See it on Amazon Little official information on the Yongnuo 85mm f/1.8N, but it would seem that the two lenses are extremely similar, if not totally the same. The picture…
