Sony announced the 135mm F1.8G Master Lens. The lens joins a growing lineup of G Master lenses. Sony claims the lens design maximizes the appearance of pleasing bokeh. The company built the lens with Super ED and ED elements that include “extreme aspherica (XA)” elements and four XD linear motors. An 11-blade aperture controls the roundness of out-of-focus highlights, allegedly even at F4. DPReview published an article on the lens and also has a sample gallery. Check it out here.
