Hands On Video With Sony 18-110mm F/4

Yesterday we saw the announcement of the Sony 18-110mm F/4 lens for super 35 cameras here at IBC 2016. Here is a hands-on video checking out the new features.

For FS5 and FS7 shooters, the wider focal length of 18mm will be a pleasing addition when compared top the slightly longer 28mm (equivalent to 27-165mm in full frame). The Sony 18-110mm has a constant aperture of F/4, and, weighing only 1105 grams, it keeps camera setups compact and light.

Sony 18-110mm features and specs at a glance:

  • 18-110mm focal length (27-167mm full frame equivalent).
  • Constant F/4 aperture.
  • Smooth Motion Optics minimizes breathing, axial shift and focus shifting.
  • Reversable zoom control (change the zoom ring direction from clockwise to anti clockwise).
  • New removable lens tripod mount.
  • New removable lens cover and lens cap included.

The new lens will be around €3,999  ($4,500 from B&H) and will be available from December 2016. For the full article please click here.

It’s not very cheap for a f4 lens, although it’s constant. But It’s in my wishlist from now on!!! Can’t wait to see some footage shot with it!

I don’t understand why Japanese companies always insist to hire dull non English speaking marketing guys that either know nothing about the product, or know nothing about marketing, or need some English classes!

Hi Oss, I think your remark is very rude. We prefer to have people involved with the development of products in front of the camera rather than marketing or sales staff.

I agree with Oss. The guy may be an engineer, but did not add much insight into the product. This ‘interview’ was generally Nino telling us about the product, giving the guy a chance to answer, and then getting a vigorous nodding. Not very helpful.

Maybe work on asking more open-ended questions, Nino. Like “what did you have in mind with this lens? What was the development process like? What were some of the engineering challenges?” You were asking him a bunch of yes/no questions and he wasn’t the kind of person that elaborates unprompted.

Your comment is disrespectful. This is one of the people behind that lens. He is not a marketing person. When ever we can, we interview the engineers behind the products and not the people who are trying to sell it

Accept or move on.

Thank you.

How is your Japanese Oss Rai? “Sushi” and “Konnichiwa” is about it I bet. I’m a fluent Japanese speaker, live in Japan for almost 20 years and really couldn’t careless how good or bad his English is. We got all the info we need without all the usual sales pitches. Make a more tactful remark, or don’t mark a remark at all.

Trust me. They may not have an expert command of the english language, but they are experts in their product.

Agree that, I do love their products

I’m interested, but the price seems really high. I expected it to be the same as the 28-135.
