The Sony 135mm f/2.8 (T4.5) STF Telephoto lens is an advanced STF (Smooth Transition Focus) telephoto lens incorporates an apodization optical element that distributes light rays to create smooth, aesthetically pleasing out-of-focus backgrounds that make sharp-focus subjects stand out more vividly. Mounted on the Sony DSLR-A100 camera, this lens provides a 200mm focal length (35mm equivalent).

Sony Alpha 100 - Digital system camera|
The Sony Alpha A100 camera is an instant classic: the top-quality 10 Megapixel DSLR system camera that builds on a two-decade legacy of Minolta photographic leadership, accepts 20 years of A-mount lenses sold worldwide, and introduces Sony imaging innovations like high-sensitivity shooting with Super SteadyShot in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer to automatically increase detail in bright and dark picture areas, new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures, and Eye-Start Auto focus system for faster camera response.
Sony 135mm STF Telephoto - Focus
While subjects remain in sharp focus, out-of-focus backgrounds or foregrounds are blurred smoothly and evenly with gradation that thickens toward the edges of the frame for a pleasing aesthetic effect. After light passes through the apodization element, the lens aperture of f2.8 yields a T (transmissive brightness) equivalent of 4.5; a manual aperture ring can adjust T setting from 4.5 to 6.7.

The dedicated manual focusing system is controlled by a wide focus ring that’s comfortable to hold and gives you a solid, hands-on feel for pinpoint focusing of your subject. Because aperture blades form a near circle at the wide openings used for low-light shots, spot-light sources have a pleasing circular defocused effect. The Sony 135mm f/2.8 (T4.5) STF Telephoto SAL-135F28 lens can be preordered on September 8th, 2006.
