Detail, landscape and portrait
The lens with its focal length of 135 mm zooms in on details without bringing the typical, lapsing telescopic effect into the picture. Since it is free of distortion and with its aperture it by far surpasses the standard Vario lens of the digital camera. Hand-held shots and even snapshots do not cause problems with this focal length. Users of an APS-C camera will be more than pleased: they now have a medium length landscape lens, here still with an extraordinary aperture, which enables reliable working and previously unknown shots.
Outstanding lens speed
The walimex pro 135 mm with an initial aperture of 2.0 comes with an extremely high lens speed. This not only enables hand-held shots under critical light conditions, but it also provides creative highlights by providing the possibility of quasi cropping the motif: the focal depth is half the size of the focal depth when using a 135 mm lens with an aperture of 2.8. At the same time the finder is twice as light, which is a great help when assessing the picture.
High quality optics
The lens is optically of a very innovative design: with 11 lenses in 7 groups in combination with a lens made of high-refractive ED-glass it also ensures excellent images also in the close-up range. The minimum range of 80 cm has deliberately been kept very small – concentrating on details is made easy with this lens. The mechanical design ensures that the tube does not rotate when focussing (considerably eases the use of 77 mm polarization filters) and the total length does also not change – no matter whether you work in the infinite range, or at the 80 cm distance setting. This is achieved by a second inner tube, which moves inside the outer mounting when focussing. Further advantages: The centre of gravity remains almost unchanged. The fine focal distribution is achieved by an almost circular aperture with 9 blades. All glass-air surfaces are obviously provided with a ultra multi-layer coating.
