At Photokina, Sony’s new 28-135 mm f/4 E-mount zoom is another hint of where I think things are heading for motion picture cameras and lenses. It’s a full-frame still format (24x36mm) zoom. And it has optical image stabilization.
I had not realized that it was full-frame when I was at IBC. And I’m not yet sure if the price is a misprint. Could it really have a street price of $2,499.00 when it ships?
The new servo zoom E-Mount FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS (SELP28135G) zoom is the “kit lens” for Sony’s new PXW-FS7K camera.
Sony say’s it’s “the world’s first 35mm full-frame interchangeable power zoom lens. It features constant f/4, independent rings for iris, zoom and focus, and is dust- and moisture-resistant. The SELP28135G has SteadyShot (optical image) stabilization, minimum focus breathing” and uses Sony’s new Super Sonic wave Motor (SSM) for reduced motor noise when shooting.
