Steve Huff has reviewed the new Sony 100mm f/2.8 G Master and notes how impressive the lens' bokeh is, stating "this lens is special for one main reason and that is the Bokeh it can deliver. It is as smooth as I have ever seen, from any lens, ever."
In the review, Huff makes a great point about the importance of being highly selective about choosing your lenses. "The LENS is the most important tool you will use in your photographic journey, work, business or whatever you use a camera for. NOT THE CAMERA. But YOU and the LENS is what matters most today, IMO. Your skill, your vision and the lens that allows you to “draw” that vision and bring it to life." He continues, "A lens is what brings us that unique look, character, style, or in this case…the bokeh and crispness of the images. The good news is that with this lens, the images just POP and the color performance of this lens is G Master all the way. In case you were un-aware, the G Master line is Sony’s full on PRO line of glass, and it includes the beautiful 85 1.4 and the gorgeous 24-70 as well. These lenses are remarkable, and provide stunning color, 3D depth and detail. Bokeh is lovely with the 85 and 24-70 but with this 100 GM, it takes it up a notch."
Huff proclaims that "Sony did it again," referring to the ever growing lineup of lenses for the Alpha "E" mount mirrorless system. The new Sony 100mm f/2.8 is part of the powerful G Master class of lenses. "This is a crazy cool lens. It’s a pro built, pro optics lens with a feature like no other made today. This G master lens offers sharpness, color performance and bokeh that is up there with the best available for the 35mm format."
"The detail of this lens is spectacular. It has not only smooth as silk Bokeh, but it also gives you that nice separation of your subject from that background of blur. The subject is always sharp, and the front and back bokeh is always smooth." - Steve Huff
