Today on Sony Alpha Rumors this little beauty showed up. The rumored Sony 18-110mm f/4.0 G PZ APS-C E-mount lens. I like the idea a lot. Much better fit for the FS7 and FS5 that are S35 as well as the ar7ii that shoots in 4K in s35 mode. I really like the idea of a variable zoom lens that is parfocal and made for the s35 format. I don’t shoot full frame video and a dedicated lens for the s35 format is a great option for me. I’m also good with F4 because the lens is lighter and easier to work with.  One lens that I use a ton is the F4 Canon 24-105. I set the f-stop to F4 and shoot away.

Here is the full frame Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens for comparison.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS fro the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format

Since this is a rumored lens I don’t want to get to excited but it looks really great. I have a feeling it will be focus by wire and I hope it won’t be but very doubtful. The big brother FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G is and reviews haven’t been very good. Let’s see what happens.

    I was hoping this lens would be F2.8. Hopefully the price will be affordable, but knowing SONY it will not be cheap. I currently adapt my Canon 24-105/F4 to my FS5 with a MB Speedbooster for an effective F2.8, but would like to have a native lens with better autofocus for the few times I need it. The servo zoom could come in handy, too.

    Thanks for the post Erik. This is most definitely a mechanical lens. A great addition and will be a killer combo for the FS5. We left Sony a couple years ago, but feel a return coming. Their doing great things and the addition of the MPEG-2 4:2:2 upgrade on the Fs5 isn’t hurting either.
