Saw this while searching for the Sony 85mm f1.8 lens on Amazon ($548). It shows as the "newer model" but the picture and the description seem match. The "newer model" is first available on Amazon since September 3 2019. "Newer model" manufacturer reference is SEL85F18/2 while the "older" one is just SEL85F18. The "newer model" ships from and sold by Amazon.com and "Usually ships within 1 to 3 months "

Ppl that are greedy ordering more than 1, you are risking higher chances of your order being cancelled + alerting amazon. Nobody wins here.

Aside from being 128mm full frame focal length equivalent, please keep in mind that this lens doesn't have Optical Steady Shot(OSS), which is Sony's version of image stabilization. If you are shooting on a body with stabilization, which are most current full frame Sony cameras like the a7iii, then this isn't an issue. Since the a6000 was mentioned numerous times previously, it is important to note that the a6000 does not have IBIS( In body image stabilization), so video when shot hand held will have lots ot shakes. For pictures, assuming you are shooting at the widest aperture, you can play with the iso and shutter speed to compensate.

It should also be noted that this lens is fairly heavy, and you will definitely feel it especially when shooting on a light body like the a6000

Contacted Amazon and they confirmed that the price is correct. It's a new model that is releasing in October apparently. The rep also repeated several times that if there's an issue with the purchase, that I can return it for a full refund so long as it's within the appropriate window for returns. Rep actually went to their supervisor to verify.

TLDR: Amazon confirmed it's a new model and that is the price (though it's likely they got the new/old model pricing switched)

Ships in 1-3 months. Given that, best case scenario is that Amazon gives us all a gc for a cancellation.
