The F55 hire camera accepts the new PL mount lenses developed by Sony; these new lenses are specifically designed for 4K recordings to minimize geometric distortion and crop. Their 9-blade iris guarantees beautiful bokeh. The focus ring rotates 240°. The basic kit has the following primes: 20, 25, 35, 50, 85 and 135mm. These lenses have the same T2.0 aperture, same external diameter, matte box diameter, and the same "follow focus" mechanism system location the old Sony PL lenses had. All of them have the same size, except the 135mm prime. F55 camera rental - hire in Camaleon Hire.
