Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4.0 G Overview

Designed to satisfy 4K production requirements, the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens is a wide-ranging zoom lens that covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives while adding many features for your full-frame, APS-C, or E-mount camcorder or still photography camera system. The lens features a powered zoom control with a variable speed and zoom rotation direction reversal capability. Powering the zoom function is an SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive that allows precision and quiet operation. Focus noise is also minimized through weight reduction of the focus element group and use of a linear motor. Iris function is also designed to be smooth and silent for cinematography demands.

Angle of view variations while focusing (breathing) and axial displacement while zooming have been reduced while five aspherical elements and three ED elements work with advanced multi-coating technology to minimize distortion and chromatic aberrations while also contributing to sharper overall imagery with enhanced contrast and clarity.

Independent control rings for zoom, focus, and iris (aperture) are provided for and the focus mode can be switched from auto to manual by sliding the focus ring forward so control is maintained at all times. All three control rings have been engineered to provide the right amount of torque for comfortable, responsive operation and the pitch of the scalloping on the rings has been designed for comfortable, slip-free control.

A constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and is especially beneficial when working with greater zoom magnifications in low-light conditions. Also benefiting working in dim light or at the long end of the zoom range is Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps.

Powered 8-speed zoom provides a 28-135mm focal length range, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives
Power zoom designed for cinema productions and full frame cameras
Features Sony's original Nano AR Coating technology designed to effectively suppress reflections that can cause flare and ghosting. The precisely defined regular nano-structure allows accurate light transmission, contributing to high-quality images, even more so than lenses with coatings that use an irregular nano-structure
Three control rings (for zoom, focus, iris) offer manual control for demanding large format productions. 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 designed for comfortable, slip-free control
Sony's advanced iris control and linear AF motor drive system achieve quiet focusing that is also extremely responsive. Part of the reason that focus control is so quiet is that original Sony linear motors are contactless, with no gears or mechanical coupling to generate noise
The world's first SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) drive in a cinema lens for quiet zoom and smooth iris control
Maintains plane of focus while zooming and maintains field of view while focusing (important for video)
Delivers smooth tracking throughout the zoom range at any speed and eliminates any axial image shifting. Zooming is quiet as well as responsive thanks to advanced mechanical actuator design
Features an optical design and control technology inherited from Sony's professional camcorders that ensure no breathing while focusing
Constant f/4 maximum aperture enables greater consistency throughout the zoom range and benefits working in dim conditions with longer focal lengths
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to benefit shooting handheld in dim lighting and with greater zoom magnifications
Three extra-low dispersion elements and five aspherical elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness and clarity

How does this lens compare with Sony G Master ...

How does this lens compare with Sony G Master lenses such as 16-35mm GM in sharpness and minimizing focus breathing especially at the 28mm focal range?
Asked by: Derek
This compares well with the 16-35mm GM. You will see some lens breathing though.

question

Will this have full functionality on Sony Fs700?
Asked by: Alex
I use it principally with my Sony FS700 and also on a Sony A7S. The wide angle is not as wide as needed in some situations but it's a really nice lens.

question

I used this on a rental camera and found that it is very susceptible to flare from a hairlight. I also used an EX1R right next to the camera with the 28-135, and it didn't flare at all. I'm curious as to whether anyone else has noticed this?
Asked by: Arthur
In my years as a motion picture camera assistant, it was a given that each model of lens had it's own behavior that must be observed and dealt with. The two lenses mentioned are for very different sensors and have very different designs so I would not be surprised by different behavior. In my experience, I have found lenses that hadn't flared at all suddenly having issues when presented with an entirely different light source. While no one wants to deal with flare I would say in this instance you have to do what you have to do to flag off the light causing the flare.

question

Will this lens work with a follow focus unit, do you need to attach gear rings?
Asked by: Hans V.
I own this lens and can first had say YES, a follow focus can work directly with the lens without a lens gear. The focusing ring is rubber and has indentations. By pressing a follow focus against the rubber focusing ring, it indeed works by friction. I'm using a Chrosziel FF and have no problems hitting marks repeatedly. While a true gear would be ideal, this still is useable without.

On my A7s2 the zoom can be controlled by wired remote or a cell phone app. On my A7R4 the zoom can be controlled by Bluetooth remote as well.

question

I'm trying to find the collar mount for this lens separately, I need a new one. Anyone have a link to a part, or a way to purchase the collar on its own? Thanks.
Asked by: Jeremy
This would be a replacement part and as such, it is available from Sony directly. Please contact them here: http://bit.ly/1MX9tQJ
