REVIEWED: Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4G OSS

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. I found that I really liked some of its operational characteristics (except for one), and it is not nearly as heavy as its size might imply. It is both autofocus and with optical stabilization too.

I set out for some exploratory shots in my backyard, only to discover that a great deal to learn was found right there in the first ad-hoc shots: sharpness, distortion, focus shift and so on.

Potential buyers of this lens should consider this evaluation a must-read.

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.
