Next Level Lens

SEL135F18GM 17 November 2019 by jloz (USA)

I waited and waited to purchase this monster lens and the long wait is over. When I say monster, I mean it is huge! It is a great workout for your forearms as it is very heavy. The IQ this lens delivers is next level. You will not be disappointed, even if you are an image snob. It focuses lightning fast. Performs well in low light conditions. The bokeh melts like butter. Even at $1900 this lens is a bargain. After reading my word salad, go to your nearest online or B&M retailer and do not waste another moment. P.S. Do not purchase the Intl' version. It may be $150 cheaper but it does not come with the manufacturer's warranty and the mount is made of plastic.

Faultless

SEL135F18GM 16 October 2019 by Chimneyfinder (United Kingdom)

This is a very fine lens. The sharpness is incredible and impressive for maintaining such a high level not only through the aperture range but from close to far distances. Focus speed is at a pro level response. Resistance to flare, ghosting, veil, etc. is very high. The weight and size comes with the design capability so it would be fatuous to criticise it for this. Really, I can not say that this lens is lacking in any department and very few lenses would achieve this in my experience. I have this lens (it is the longest lens I own) as it sits in the mid range of a 70-200mm, and it covers what I want as a telephoto. As I go out walking for a whole day the f2.8 zoom would need a larger bag and it can start to feel heavy. Apart from that the 135 is an absolute joy to use and, being used to prime lenses for 40 years, framing isn't an issue, it suits my eye. I am delighted and fortunate to have such a great lens.

Having used another brand's 135 for many years, the GM 135 is so much better.

Beautiful lens

SEL135F18GM 23 September 2019 by Snowsurfer55 (USA)

This lens is sharp and has an amazing focus system. Great bokeh for portraits and prefer it over an 85mm. So far this is my first GM and it is well worth the money.

Absolutely the best 135mm fast len I've ever used.

SEL135F18GM 29 August 2019 by NRE 12 (USA)

This lens is totally fabulous particularly, for low light work. I tried it out at a stage performance this past summer and immediately returned it to the rental shop with money in hand. I've shot at least 10 low light stage performances sine then and have not regretted paying top dollar for this glass.

SEL135F18GM 29 July 2019 by Doug75 (United Kingdom)

Unbelievably sharp lens. The Eye AF tracks perfectly for portraits even in low light. The two focus hold buttons instead of the one is very useful when rotating the camera for portraits. The lens is expensive but you get what you pay for with the G master lens. Very happy.

recommend this 135GM

SEL135F18GM SYX 29 April 2019 by JackiePanSingapore (Singapore)

I bought 70-200GM and 135GM, later i will write 70-200GM. If i got a chance, i may return that 70-200GM. Not saying 70-200GM is not good. Because 135GM is near perfect. Super sharp, creamy bokeh, fast AF, nice color render specially skin tone. I owned some other GMs as well, also has been a long time using Canon lens such as 35L,85L etc. Trying to upload some images, but Sony Website, you know, can't upload above 5MB, which is quite stupid.
