This Sony 28-135mm f/4 camera lens alsohas an ultra-quiet wave motor so that the noise of zooming doesn’t appear on thevideo soundtrack. Quiet floating motors are also used for the aperture and autofocus, and because they are contactless, there are no gears or couplings that create sounds.
When you use this movie lens, take advantage of the SteadyShot image stabilization, which uses gyro sensors to precisely compensate for hand shake and vibrations. This produces a clearer image, one that remains sharp. In addition, the internal focusing mechanism ensures the end of the camera doesn’t rotate, which is ideal when you’re using a polarizing filter. Extra-low dispersion glass, Nano AR coatings and aspherical lens elements ensurethis Sony 28-135mm f/4 camera lens reduces ghosting, flare and chromatic effects.
The Sony 28-135mm F4 Full-frame E-mount Power Zoom Lens has been created to satisfy professional optical and operational requirements for high-quality movie imagery, including 4K, when matched with a 35mm full frame format camera such as the alpha7S or a Super 35 format camcorder such as the PXW-FS7. Focus breathing and zoom image shift have been reduced to an absolute minimum, while aspherical elements and advanced multi-coating technology effectively suppress aberration. Quiet operation is also a priority, so an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system has been employed for precise, quiet zooming. Independent control rings for zoom, focus and iris using physical stops are provided for the first time into an E-Mount an lens. Built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization adds to the extraordinary performance of this outstanding lens which is supporting a constant F4. Zoom range increases to 42-202.5mm when using the lens on an APS-C or Super 35 camera.
35mm full frame imagery
Precision optical design supports top-quality 4K production with minimum angle of view variation while focusing and axial displacement while zooming.
F4 OSS with extendable zoom range
The SELP28135G has minimum focus of 0.4 m (AF) / 0.95 m (MF) and has extended zoom range of 42-202.5mm when used on an APS-C or S35 camera.
High speed operation with independent control rings
High-end operation and feel inherited from Sony professional equipment. Three control rings for iris, focus and zoom offer manual control for demanding large format production.
The world’s first SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive in a lens designed for moviemaking achieves quiet zoom and extra-smooth iris control.
Lightweight and compact
Compact, lightweight design that is also dust and moisture resistant is ideal for situations that require mobility plus reliability.
Superb 35mm full frame imagery
This top-quality powered zoom lens for 35mm full frame format cameras has been created to satisfy professional moviemaking requirements, including the high resolution 4K format. Angle of view variations while focusing (breathing) and axial displacement while zooming have been reduced to an absolute minimum and aspherical elements work with advanced multi-coating technology to effectively suppress all types of aberration.
Three independent control rings
Independent control rings for zoom, focus and iris (aperture) are provided for the first time in an alpha lens and the focus mode can be switched from auto to manual simply by sliding the focus ring forward so control is maintained at all times. Zoom speed can be precisely controlled over a wide range, with zoom rotation direction reversal capability. All three control rings have been engineered to provide ideal torque for comfortable, responsive operation. Even the pitch of the scalloping on the rings has been painstakingly designed for comfortable, slip-free control.
An SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive system has been employed for precise, quiet zooming. Focus noise has been minimized by reducing the weight of the focus element group and driving it with a responsive linear motor. Smooth, quiet iris operation also contributes to enhanced usability.
Compact design and dust and moisture resistant
Compact dimensions and reduced weight are an advantage in shooting situations that demand maximum mobility and built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization adds to the extraordinary cost/performance of this high performance lens.
