Superb Image Resolution

With advanced optical technology that Sony keeps installing into the Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens, the lens improves impressively with a large aperture in a telephoto construction to deliver outstanding resolution even at an aperture of f/1.8.

XA and Super ED Glass Elements

The Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens is equipped with high-quality glass elements, such as the XA Element (Extreme Aspherical); and ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements which is used to effectively correct aberration, while a floating focus system works with these aberration correction measures to ensure that the highest resolution is constantly maintained throughout the entire focal length.

Nano AR Coating

The lens also incorporates a special coating – the Nano AR Coating which is used as an effective solution, to suppress internal reflections from taking place where flare and ghosting normally occurs. The solution will lead to achieving enhanced contrast and clarity in the widest possible range of shooting conditions.

Durable, Lightweight Magnesium Alloy Construction

The Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens might seem heavier, yet it weighs only 950g. The lens barrel chassis is a durable lens that’s constructed of a lightweight magnesium alloy; and with the hardness of the alloy – it helps to maintain optimum optical precision and reliability.

Enhanced Response and Linear Focus Control

More and more features get added each and every time, making the Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens so much more exciting to shoot with – as the focus rings of the lens features Linear Response in Manual Focus which allows precise control and instantaneous response when focusing manually for stills or video recording. Additionally, the focus responds linearly to focus ring rotation so that camera accurately follows the users input.

Dust and Moisture Resistance

With a dust and moisture resistant design, makes it the perfect companion for wildlife, sports, and even wedding photographers to confidently operate in challenging outdoor environments as the design provides the protection needed.

Fluorine Coated Front Element

Mistakes happens when being in the momentum of photographing, especially when you out there in challenging environments. However, the front of the lens surface is protected with fluorine coating which is used to resist dust, water, fingerprints, oil, and other contaminants.

Dual Front and Rear XD Linear Motors

Autofocus within the Sony has never been this fast as it merges innovative, extreme dynamic motors – playing a vital role within the lens. The motors make it possible to maintain focus on moving portrait subjects, performers on stage, or similarly dynamic subjects with impressive speed, precision, and reliability.

Floating Focus Mechanism

A floating focus mechanism has been incorporated into the lens, although it’s a telephoto 135mm lens. The mechanism is used to effectively control all sorts of aberrations at all focusing distances which has been made possible to achieve a minimum focus distance of just 0.7m, and a maximum magnification of 0.2x for close-up photography.

Customisable Focus Hold Buttons

With customisable focus hold buttons that’s been incorporated into the design of the Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens which will be situated on the side and top surfaces of the lens, is used for easy access and convenient control when photographing in either horizontal or vertical orientation.
