Sony lanserar!

Nyhet

Idag lanserar Sony ett nytt teleobjektiv, Sony 135/1,8 G Master som blir ett spännande objektiv att testa då brännvidden 135mm tillsammans med en sådan ljusstyrka har potentialen att ge magiskt bra bilder. Levererar Sony igen?

Sonys G Master-serie har hittills imponerat oss och den nya 135mm GM förväntar vi uppnå samma kvalité.  Sony skriver i sitt pressmeddelande att "den nya FE 135mm F1,8 GM ger exeptionellt hög bildkvalité och utsökt bokeh" och en anledning till att Sonys objektiv håller världsklass är att dom fokuserar på objektivets bokeh lika mycket som på skärpa vilket ger förutsättningar till magisk bra bilder. Detta uppnås med en 11-bladig bländare och en närgräns på endast 0,7 m.

För att hålla samma kvalitet som resterande GM-objektiv är denna försedd med XA-glas och Super ED-glas längst fram för att effektivt ta bort optiska felaktigheter som ofta uppkommer med teleobjektiv. Sony har monterat deras nya linjära autofokusmotor för att uppnå snabb och precis fokus vilket tillsammans med deras klassledande ögon-autofokus ger förutsättningarna för att detta ska bli ett fantastiskt bra porträttobjektiv. Dessutom har objektivet två funktionsknappar för att låsa fokus samt ett vred för att minska fokusdistansen så motorn kan jobba snabbare och mer effektivt på avstånd.

Alla dessa funktioner och glas är packat i ett relativt kompakt och lätt format på endast 950g, nästan 200g mindre än Sigmas motsvarande 135mm f/1,8 Art. Test kommer så fort vi har ett skarp exemplar i våra händer. 22490kr och första leverans under april 2019.

Engelskt pressmeddelande:

Sony today introduced a highly anticipated addition to their acclaimed G Master™ series of full-frame E-mount interchangeable lenses – a 135mm F1.8 full-frame, large-aperture telephoto prime lens (model SEL135F18GM).

Equipped with Sony’s most advanced optical technologies, the new lens is built to meet the extremely high standards of Sony’s G Master series. The new FE 135mm F1.8 GM offers exceptionally high resolution and exquisite bokeh, two qualities that are signature attributes of Sony’s flagship G Master brand. The new lens combines rapid autofocus (AF) acquisition with a lightweight, portable design and a variety of professional functions, making it a versatile, high-performance tool for professional portrait photographers, wedding photographers, sports photographers and a wide variety of imaging enthusiasts.

“Sony’s commitment to growing our FE lens and E-mount lens line-up remains stronger than ever,” said Yann Salmon-Legagneur, Director of Product Marketing, Digital Imaging at Sony Europe.“Our 31st native full-frame mirrorless lens, the highly anticipated 135mm prime brings the acclaimed G Master quality to another popular focal length for both professionals and enthusiasts to enjoy. This brings the total number of native Sony α™ E-mount lenses to 49. We will continue to drive market-leading innovation in all aspects of our imaging business, giving our customers the opportunity to capture and create like they never have before.”

Realising consistently high resolution across the entire frame, even at F1.8, the FE 135mm F1.8 GMboasts an innovative optical design that places XA (extreme aspherical) and Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements in the front group to effectively suppress all common telephoto lens aberrations. Additionally, the Super ED element plus one ED glass element are strategically positioned to compensate for axial chromatic aberration, minimize colour fringing and maximise overall resolution, ensuring outstanding image quality. For impressive clarity, Sony’s unique Nano AR Coating is applied to reduce flare and ghosting that can occur when shooting backlit portraits.

The new telephoto prime lens utilises its XA element, refined with Sony’s latest bokeh simulation technologies during the design and manufacturing stages, to control spherical aberration and achieve exquisite bokeh. In addition, an 11-bladed circular aperture mechanism contributes towards achieving extremely natural and beautiful background defocus. The exciting new model also features dual-autofocus groups in a floating focus arrangement for improved close-up capability, allowing a minimum focus distance of just 0.7 metres and a maximum magnification of 0.25x.

To ensure that this lens can keep up with fast-moving portrait or sports subjects, the FE 135mm F1.8 GM has been equipped with a total of four of Sony’s proprietary XD linear motors—two for each group—that achieve rapid, reliable and speedy AF tracking and performance. There is also a control algorithm that helps to maximise control response and ensure quiet, low-vibration AF. All of this exceptional performance is packaged in a compact, lightweight body weighing in at 950g.

The FE 135mm F1.8 GM includes a number of professional controls that enhance ease of operation for both stills and movie shooting. These include an aperture ring that allows direct, intuitive aperture control and a focus ring that features Linear Response MF for fine, responsive manual focus control. There is also a focus range limiter switch, two customisable focus hold buttons, and a focus-mode switch that makes it possible to quickly select auto or manual focus to match changing shooting conditions.
