Sony FE 100mm STF (2)

This lens is designed for ultimate resolution with ultimate bokeh, thanks to an apodization (APD) element. The new Sony FE 100mm f/2.8 STF G Master OSS lens features optical steady shot image stabilisation. The lens has a Direct Drive SSM (Super-Sonic Motor), and focus is quick. There is a Nano AR (Anti-reflective) coating to reduce flare and ghosting. The lens is also dust and moisture resistant.

The lens consists of 13 elements (excluding the APD element) in 10 groups, with 1 aspherical lens element, and 1 ED glass element. The lens is designed for high MTF performance, as well as smooth bokeh, both in front of the subject or behind. The lens has a close focus ring, which brings the close focusing distance down to 57cm, giving 0.25x magnification. The lens also features 11 circular aperture blades which further help produce beautiful bokeh (blur in out of focus areas).

Didn't realise I needed a 100mm in my collection until I saw these sample photos. Can't wait for the full review - looks very nice!
