Sony has announced the SELP18110G E PZ 18-110mm G OSS Lens for Super 35 mm/APS-C professional 4K productions. With a constant maximum aperture of F4 and a lightweight design, the SELP18110G is perfect for run and gun, mobile and handheld camera work
One of the main features of the SELP18110G is its design and construction. Sony’s Smooth Motion Optics minimizes focus breathing, axial shift, and focus shift. These problems are commonly found on many DSLR lenses, but the SELP18110G helps to alleviate these complications.
The 18-110mm zoom offers a wide range of coverage frequently used for Super 35mm/APS-C 4K productions. It features lag-free manual zooms and smooth powered zooms without overshoot and undershoot. The direction of the zoom ring is switchable, and users are able to obtain a smooth, slow powered zoom with ease.
A compact, lightweight design makes this lens ideal for situations that require mobility for active handheld camera work.
The SELP18110G will be available soon for a retail price of $3499.99. Preorder yours from Texas Media Systems today!
