The Sony 18-110mm f/4 E PZ G OSS Lens is a versatile lens choice for videographers and cinematographers featuring a wide-focal-length range and constant f/4 aperture in a compact form factor. The lens offers coverage from moderately wide to narrow angles-of-view. Sony's built-in Smooth Motion Optics leverage the
internal mechanics of the lens to minimize focus breathing, focus
shifting, and other anomalies that would otherwise be noticeable when
adjusting the lens during recording.
The body of the lens
sports separate focus, zoom, and iris rings for complete manual control.
Just pull the focus ring back and full-time manual focus is engaged.
The focus ring itself has built-in cinema-standard gearing for
follow-focus compatibility. Zoom functionality can be operated both
manually and electronically. The zoom ring is connected to the lens
mechanically, so crash-zooms can be achieved without lag. Iris operation
can be done automatically, or by rotating the iris ring. By disengaging
the iris click switch, manual iris adjustments can be made smoothly.
smaller, less robust cameras, a quick-release tripod foot is included.
The foot secures towards the rear of the lens for tripod use.
Alternatively, a conventional lens support can be attached near front of
the lens for compatibility with rod-based lens supports. The filter
thread will accept 95mm-diameter round filters and the included lens
cap. A lens hood is also included for minimizing flare. The hood's
shuttered design can be closed when the camera is not in use.
