The Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/85 ZA,  according to the Sony SAL-85F14Z classification, is a high-quality super fast portrait lens with a superb picture, high resolution and contrast, advanced and professional photographers oriented.  The device is solidly assembled, the casing is metal. It was produced by the manufacturer in a new design exclusively for Sony.

Fast lens speed enables to use the Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4 / 85 ZA for portraiture with the most favorable focal length, as well as for hand-held shooting in low light conditions. That determines the most of its price, you can use a cheaper lens to shoot at f2,8.

With the aperture wide open the Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4 / 85 ZA is rather sharp at the center and has a slight vignetting, but a colored fringe may occur. The absence of  the SSM is not a problem, the autofocus is rather fast. The focusing ring rotation is about 120 degrees. It is incompatible with the Sony teleconverters.
