Here are new round reviews and tests of new announced Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens (B&H Photo/Adorama/Amazon). This lens currently is the best selling mirrorless lens at B&H Photo/Adorama, will be released in late April, 2019. US price is $1,898.
FM Rolling Review: Sony FE 135mm f/1.8 GM:
Sony has once again delivered a top resolution lens, without neglecting rendering. In my opinion, the FE 135/1.8 GM is easily the best medium telephoto prime on the market today.
With the lens wide open at infinity and close-up distances, it’s razor sharp from center to extreme corners. This lens is compact with light construction, has great ergonomic features like custom buttons, aperture ring with de-clicking, AF/MF button and linear manual focus by wire. The latter almost tricking you into thinking it’s a helicoid MF lens.
I’d say the Sony 135/1.8 GM’s main competitor is the Sigma 135/1.8 Art and surprisingly when I compared the two, they produce very similar images. The main difference is the weight, AF speed and price.
