The Sony E PZ 18-110mm f/4 G OSS Lensis a Super 35 mm/APS-C format powered zoom lens featuring superb image quality as well as operability and quietness that can enhance efficiency and workflow in serious movie production environments. From 18 mm wide-angle to 110 mm telephoto (), this lens covers the most frequently used range for Super 35 mm/APS-C production with constant F4 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. Moreover, unwanted image shifts from issues including focus breathing and axial shift and focus shift while zooming are significantly reduced by Sony's innovative SMO (Smooth Motion Optics) design and construction. The impeccable Sony G Lens design emphasizes a graceful balance between high resolution and gorgeous background bokeh that can enhance the artist's vision. 18 to 110 mm zoom covers the most frequently used range for Super 35 mm/APS-C movies with a constant F4 maximum aperture. G Lens optical performance delivers image quality that is suitable for 4K production throughout, right out to the image periphery. Sony SMO design minimizes image shift due to lens operation, while high-level zoom control and refined focus add to professional overall performance.
An ideal companion to a wide range of alpha cameras, from the PXW-FS7 professional camcorder to interchangeable-lens cameras such as α7 series and a6300, this G Lens delivers image quality that will satisfy even the most demanding of professional users. It consists of 18 elements in 15 groups, including 6 aspherical elements and 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and features a 7 blade circular aperture design. This highly intricate design delivers extremely high resolution image quality and is particularly suited to professional 4K movie shooting. The E PZ 18-110mm F4 G OSS is only the second lens to benefit from Sony's Smooth Motion Optics (SMO) design and construction, which has been developed to eliminate unwanted image shifts while making adjustments during movie shooting. SMO addresses three particular aspects of lens operation that can have a significant impact on movie quality: Focus Breathing, where shifts in angle of view during focusing are minimized by an internal focus mechanism; focus shift, where small shifts in focus that can occur during zooming are eliminated by precise focus tracking adjustment, and Axial shift, where axial image shifts during zooming are minimized by a constant length design. The high level of operability and quiet operation of the new lens makes it a compelling proposition for its integration into professional movie production environments. Its three separate rings give control over focus, zoom and aperture, with optimal torque for a satisfyingly responsive, professional feel. Both servo and responsive manual mechanical zoom are fully supported and the zoom ring direction is switchable to match individual user preferences. Additionally, the lens length remains constant during any changes, making it easy to use with matte boxes and other lens accessories. Also, in a first for Sony α lenses, a pitch focus gear is built right onto the ring, providing direct compatibility with standard focusing accessories.
