I was really looking forward to getting my hands on 85 mm G Master. I was hoping that it’s bright 1.4 aperture and 11-blade circular aperture would make this the king of the ‘Bokeh’. Now that I have had a week shooting with the G Master 85 I have to report that this lens certainly lives up to the hype its spec sheet has generated. It is a no-compromsoe professional piece of glass that captures amazingly sharp images with, not great, but fantastic Bokeh. Even when stopped down the Bokeh does not disappoint. The F1.4 aperture is two full stops brighter than the FE90MF28G lens and this aperture not only lends itself to portraiture but also to street/editorial shooting where you can really separate the subject from the background to make your images ‘pop’.
