Let’s look at the latest assessments on the internet for the FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens reviews in the new Sony line. We have tried to summarize the details as the sample images and hands-on videos.
As you might remember the optic is the best 85mm lens for Sony A7 series cameras! It has achieved a score of 49 with excellent control of lateral chromatic aberration.
We will take a closer look at the excellent portrait model of the GM lineup. It features 11 elements in 8 groups including a newly developed, extremely precise XA (extreme aspherical) element. These glasses reduces aberration and increases resolution, as well as three ED glass elements.

From Steve Huff Photo review:
If you chose Sony for your camera of choice, and made the full frame choice or even the A6300 which is a remarkable APS-C camera, you owe it to yourself to check out this 85 1.4 if you are a fan of fast primes or are a wedding pro, portrait pro or just a passionate enthusiast like me. I just can not see this lens disappointing anyone. Just be sure your wallet is loaded as this lens will set you back $1800. Around the same price range as the competitors..this is just what it costs for that step above in quality.
The PhotographyBlog conclusion outlines a few notable drawbacks to the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens though. “The auto-focusing system is pretty loud. Makes it less than ideal for movie shooting or for candid use in very quiet environments. It also slows down and hunts quite a lot in lower-light conditions.”
The Phoblographer has given the editor’s choice award to the lens. They find the lens has fantastic sharpness with class leading bokeh.
That’s all we have for the new Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM lens reviews. Check the prices for availability at camera stores.
