Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4G OSS on A7R II

Get Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4G OSS and see my Sony mirrorless wish list at B&H Photo.

I discussed the potential appeal of the about $2498 Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4G OSS a few weeks ago, as an all-arounder even for stills. It is a lens designed for video work, and constructed accordingly, including a monster lens shade and tripod foot. But I find that I really like some of its operational characteristics. It is both autofocus and with optical stabilization too.

Below, the Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4G OSS attached to the Sony A7R II with a Really Right Stuff plate on the tripod foot.

This is a situation where the Nikon D810 has moiré problems, and the Pentax K-1 SuperRes mode is ideal: that orange ring has fine concentric lines that create moiré, though the reduced-size versions hide it.

This image is a 2-frame focus stacked image at f/13 on the Nikon D810 using the Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon. The 55/1.4 APO-Distagon is an outstanding lens for focus stacking.

A 3rd frame could have been shot for deeper focus, but some background blur is useful. Zerene Stacker made this focus stack a one-click operation, seemingly ideal for solving the depth of field challenge for product shots like this. See also some bicycle components I photographed recently—experiments as I learn stacking. My goal is super-simple 2 to 4 shot stacks for practical indoor and outdoor use.
