FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens Kit with Chiaro 95mm UV Filter Overview

Capture high-quality 4K video with this Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens Kit with Chiaro 95mm UV Filter put together by B&H. The kit includes the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 E-mount zoom lens and the Chiaro 95mm 99-UVBTS brass UV filter.

The Sony 28-135mm zoom lens fits right into your 4K production, featuring powered zoom control with a quiet motor drive, minimal chromatic aberrations, independent FIZ control rings, and a constant f/4 aperture. The scratch-resistant Chiaro 95mm UV filter provides protection for the lens and allows 99% light transmission with solid brass ring construction.

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

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

Chiaro Pro 95mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 95mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens Kit with Chiaro 95mm UV Filter Reviews

A good workhorse, but clunky.

By Bill
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-05

I bought this lens to pair with the FX6 after having used it years ago with FS7 cameras. While it is a good general use video lens that does exactly what it is supposed to, here in the future, I think it is a bit heavy and clunky. Because it makes my camera front heavy, and seemingly requiring me to build the whole system up to a "cinema" rig with rails and all that, I am not sure if I want to keep it. On the one hand, I love using my zoom rocker, but on the other, I could live without that and cut my camera's build weight in half by running a smaller photo lens. Ideally, Sony would release an 18/24mm - 105-135mm range PZ lens that is built to the size of a photo lens, like the newer PZ 16-35mm. With any luck we see something like that here in 2023! I know I will jump on that immediately if it comes out! - one star because this is beginning to become a dated design, that is begging to be upgraded. Also I don't trust it on my camera without a 15mm rail and lens support. Probably would only buy again if the camera were to always live in studio on a tripod.

For Our Sony PXW-FX9, Sony Full Frame Cameras!!! Buying our 3rd one this week!! Anyone who puts this lens down does not Understand it! Simply, THIS IS A SERVO ZOOM, FOR SONY FULL SENSORS. If you don't need that look at another Lens! If you do, This and the Sony FE C 16-35mm are your only choices in the price range!! You can put the features down all you want, but show me another option?? That said it is an Amazing Lens!

I'm using this lens on Sony a7s III to shoot video. Excellent quality, no noise up to ISO 51200, no color distortion. I love this lens. The sample of video you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40i9r_j6E0w&t=33s

I don't have time to switch lenses and I need smooth manual focus... I need wide and telephoto, and I need Parfocal... Also a native Sony E mount is a plus... This lens is the perfect lens for what I need...

I've gone back and forth on getting this lens over the past couple of years and finally got it and I'm super happy with it. I'm a bit more into video than photography and for video I love it. Since I got it it's been the only lens I've been using. In addition to being a great overall lens during the day it's also wickedly great in low light! I just with Sony would make a whole line of these lens in more focal lengths.

sharp lens, but autofocus is only as good as your camera

By Brian
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-01

This is advertised as a parfocal lens, but in my experience it doesn't seem completely so. I need to do more experimentation to really be sure. But for the money, it is a very solid build and is better than my Sony stills 24-240mm, which has a long reach but would go out of focus momentarily when zooming out from all the way zoomed in, (even in AF mode) which can spoil a shot when recording never-to-be-repeated events such as dance or sports. My Sony FS7 has a decent autofocus, (although I think the FX6 is better) and this lens does not exhibit the same loss of focus during a zoom that the stills lens does. Just wish Sony had made this a little faster, and longer. Still, you can go into crop mode on the camera to get some extra reach. Is it a bit pricey? Yes, but I don't think you're going to find anything comparable in capabilities at this price. That's just the state of things at the moment.

is it sharp lens as sony GM 135mm lens ? please let me know . thank you
Asked by: kapildev
Unfortunately, I have not seen any side-by-side comparisons between the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens, which is one of Sony's cine lenses designed primarily for their video cameras, versus their Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens, which is a lens designed primarily for still photography usage. That being said, simply making an educated guess based on the series of the lenses, Sony's G-Master (GM) lenses are touted by Sony as being their highest quality premier optics for still photography usage, and their G-series lenses would be right below the GM-series lenses as their next-best high-quality optics. Also, prime lenses with a single focal length tend to generally out-perform zoom lenses with varying focal lengths. As such, while I have not seen any side-by-side optical performance testing of these two lenses, simply judging by the lens' series and the prime vs. zoom focal lengths, I would lean towards the Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens as being the optically superior lens.
