The ULTIMATE PORTRAIT LENS? :: Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master

published 4 months ago by Ted Forbes

The Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master lens is the 31st lens in Sony's full-frame, e-mount lineup. I quickly fell in love with this lens - it is outstanding. Designed for longer portraits, this has some of the best optical rendering that I've seen on any lens to date. This is the ultimate portrait lens. Bokeh is excellent, it has outstanding sharpness and the autofocus speeds are impressive. This has the same XD linear drive system that is found in the Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master as well as the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master lenses. One correction - around 03:17 I say there's little spherical aberration at small apertures when in face I meant to say diffraction. This is where the sharpness softens in the lens and for most lenses this starts around f/16. Its been a long week - sorry for the confusion.
