So this is a 135mm lens that’s aimed primarily at the portrait crowd. The shots and videos I’ve seen so far are amazingly sharp and free from a lot of the normal chromatic aberrations that plague this sort of fast lens. In non-camera nerd speak, it’s really sharp and able to shoot in low light, without any weird colors showing up in the highlights. Basically, this will be fun to use and produce great results.
Check out these two camera YouTubers for shots and videos using the lens:
Now, this would be more of a guilty pleasure want than need for me. 135mm is a hard lens to use in the events I cover as you need a lot of space if you don’t just want tight headshots. But, Oh my gods, those images look divine. Sometimes hard lenses are fun lenses and walking around with this trying to do street photography would be a hoot.
