AstrHori has released its new 85mm F2.8 Tilt, Macro, and Medium Telephoto 3-in-1 manual full frame insect jewel portrait lens for APS-C format system cameras that capture a 1:1 scale image of a subject.
Being fully manual, the lens does not transmit any EXIF data to the camera and does not work with any focus confirmation functions. It consists of 11 elements in 8 groups, including two extra-low dispersion elements. It uses a 12-bladed aperture, has a minimum focusing distance of 28cm, uses a 55mm front filter thread, and has a tilt angle of +/- 8º.
The medium telephoto portrait lens has a focusing distance of 0.28m to infinity. It not only has the high optical quality and good depth of field control but also has a strong blurring ability with an F2.8 large aperture, which can better highlight the subject.
The 85mm F2.8 Tilt Macro has a diameter of 6.3 cm and a length of 11 cm. The lens is designed for a variety of mounts: Canon RF, Fujifilm X, L, Nikon Z, and Sony E – but all tilt functions are limited to the crop sensor format when used on full-frame cameras. It is an ideal lens for professional photographers with some tilt-shift experience, which can help you solve photography problems and explore photography possibilities.
