Sony will release its FE 135mm f/1.8 GM lens in April. The bright telephoto lens is made for the manufacturer’s mirrorless full-frame cameras. Sony is also releasing new circular polarizing filters, with diameters from 49mm to 82mm.

According to Sony, the 135mm f/1.8 lens delivers good performance at all aperture settings. The optical design would be good for high resolution and the diaphragm consists of eleven blades, for a nice reproduction of background blur. The design consists of thirteen lens elements in ten groups and the housing is made of magnesium alloy.

The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 70 centimeters and weighs 950 grams. The filter wire has a diameter of 82mm. Sony provides the 135mm with four linear autofocus motors, which are divided over two separate lens groups. That should provide fast autofocus and accurate tracking.

Sony is also introducing a new series of circular polarizing filters, for lens diameters 49mm, 52mm, 62mm, 76mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm. The new filters have a Zeiss coating and have suggested retail prices of 110 euros for the smallest unit, to 260 euros for the largest version. The filters will also be released in April.
