One of the things I’ve been really impressed by, as well as the sharpness and the speed of focus, is the way the lens renders out of focus areas, or the bokeh. It’s a really beautiful, delicate quality and one I’ve rapidly come to admire. It’s a lovely look, and if you’re wanting to isolate a subject then it’s invaluable. As well as a wedding, I’ve also had some commercial shoots for a BBC television series. I can’t share any images from that with you yet, but the lens has kept up remarkably well during some complex shoots and really brought a wonderful look to those images too. Overall, I genuinely cannot find a single fault with this lens – except maybe the weight. But good luck finding a similar telephoto with a similar aperture that isn’t going to be as heavy. I’ve found that the 135 has worked equally well on the a9 as on the a7iii too. Eye-AF is super accurate and fast and the lens tracks movement really well.
