The Sony E PZ 18-110mm lens launches after much clamour for its arrival throughout the industry. Designed for use with Super 35 E-mount camcorders (notably the Sony PXW-FS5 and PXW-FS7), this lens promises broad compatibility, even accommodating Sony Alpha series mirrorless cameras like the A7s II and A7rII.
With such a broad zoom range, it’s no surprise that this lens really excels as an all-rounder. You’d be forgiven for thinking that might mean ‘jack of all trades’, master of none. That’s certainly not the case here. At 18mm wide-angle, the lens benefits from built-in Optical SteadyShot (OSS) image stabilisation technology, helping to ensure footage is crisp and blur-free. This makes it ideally suited to documentary work, often requiring handheld shooting and frequent camera movement. Dust and moisture-resistance provide added durability and protection while shooting in outdoor or harsh environments too.
With the ability to then go to 110mm telephoto (6.1x) zoom, this lens offers unparalleled versatility, without so much as a hint of compromise. Such is the breadth of this lens, videographers can harness the constant f/4.0 maximum aperture throughout the entirety of the zoom range which, at 18-110mm, is the most commonly used in Super 35mm/APS-C production.
In fact, the lens has been built to work with Super 35mm/APS-C sensors, and is specifically engineered to ensure top-notch optical performance when capturing in 4K. That means the sharpest images, from corner to corner. Sony’s innovate Smooth Motion Optics (SMO) design helps to eliminate focus and axial shift due to while zooming operation, while the high-level zoom control and quiet operation add up to an impressive and resoundingly professional overall performance.
