Sharpest 85mm legacy lens

Recommended Posts

While this is a beautiful lens, it's definitely not the sharpest 85mm, at least not wide open.

The smaller, lighter and cheaper 85mm f2 by Minolta is much sharper.

Agree. Actually, any of Rokkors isn't better in sharpness than later New MD lens with similar MM/F. New MD is sharper, or at least the same

Hello ! This is my first port in this forum 😃

I would suggest you the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 85mm F2, in Rollei QBM mount. It's an excellent lens and it's virtually half the cost of the Contax/Yashica mount version. I got mine for $80. Probably not THE sharpest lens but still very good.

Another excellent choice is the Tamron SP 90mm F2.5 Macro (adaptall mount). This lens is extremely sharp and believe it or not, cheap.
