Is there any kind of pause when zoom transitions ...

Is there any kind of pause when zoom transitions from optical to clear image on newer Sony bodies (FX3/6/9 and A7Siii/A7iv)? I'm looking for a completely continuous zoom pull from wide to clear image 1.5x
Asked by: Philip
The lens doesn't technically stop but there's an obvious jump/difference between the optical and the digital range.

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.

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.

The Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens is very well constructed and made of a strong composite material. It is not metal.

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.

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.
