Photography News: Sony Introduces the New FE PZ 28-135mm F/4 G OSS Lens Featuring Eight-Speed Power Zoom and Image Stabilization

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 12, 2014) - B&H Photo would like to share news of the official release of the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS lens. This new lens features an eight-speed power zoom, image stabilization, and other features designed for effective 4K video production and full-frame E-mount applications.

FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens

This new Sony 28-135mm f/4 G OSS lens is designed specifically to handle the demands of 4K and HD movie imagery production, as well as still photography on full-frame E-mount cameras. Packed into the lens is a bevy of features and firsts. The lens features a powered zoom control with a variable speed and zoom rotation direction reversal capability, powered by an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive that allows precise and quiet operation. This is the first use of the SSM motor in a lens optimized for cinema. Focus noise and iris function are also designed to be smooth and silent for cinematography demands. Equally important for video, the lens maintains plane of focus while zooming, and field of view while focusing.

Control of the lens is provided by independent control rings for zoom, focus, and iris (aperture). All three control rings have been engineered to provide the ideal amount of torque for comfortable, responsive operation, and the pitch of the scalloping on the rings has been engineered for comfortable, slip-free control. A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent exposure and depth of field throughout the zoom range, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization enhances working in dim light or at the long end of the zoom range, minimizing the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps.

Optically, five aspherical elements and three ED elements work with advanced Nano anti-reflective coatings to minimize distortion and chromatic aberrations, while also contributing to sharper overall imagery with enhanced contrast and clarity. A circular nine-blade aperture provides pleasing out-of-focus areas, and enhanced weather sealing lends to the durability of the lens.
