Today is Lens day, finally after weeks of anticipation our new Sony 28-135mm f4 servo lens arrives, look at the size of the box ! With no time to play I took the Sony PXW-FS7 outside to show you how the servo lens performs. With a crop factor of 1.6 the shots have an effective field of view of 44-216mm.
Who says you can’t have a shallow depth of field with an f4 lens.
As a comparison I put the 10-18mm f4 wide angle lens on the FS7, this will be great for landscapes and interiors.
As a final test I put the 28-135mm lens onto my Sony A7s as you would expect it now acts as a full frame lens.
My thanks to John Preston of H Preston Media for getting this lens to me in time for BVE. I will get back to you tomorrow with my initial thoughts on the lens, especially in “Manual” mode.
