I’ve found the PMW-F3 to be a popular model so I thought it would be interesting to give you an insight into this new lens and its benefits.
As a significant addition to the Sony family of lenses for the PMW-F3, the SCLZ18X140 is a high-power zoom lens with FZ mount; the native lens mount of the PMW-F3. Focal length is 18mm to 252mm (28.7 – 401.8mm in 35mm equivalent) with T3.9 (T6.8 at tele end) and a zoom ratio of 14x. The lens can be mounted to the PMW-F3 with the PL mount adapter removed. The zoom position is electrically controlled by the PMW-F3 using the camera’s zoom rocker.
This lens allows flexible shooting in many different situations where fast operation is necessary and where it may be impractical to be carrying a selection of prime lenses. It features Auto Iris, Auto Focus and Servo zoom functions, along with Image Stabiliser. The lens also provides metadata that can be viewed on a monitor or stored to the camera’s SxS card. The filter diameter is 82mm. We expect the first shipment to arrive in early December.
