If you’re looking to maximize the performance of your Sony lenses in the great outdoors, the company has recently unveiled a new selection of filters to pair with your glass.
Heads up, Sony photographers! Aside from the newly launched 135mm f1.8 G Master FE Lens, Sony has also announced a bunch of new Circular Polarizing Filters. You might want to check them out if you’re a frequent user of filters to maximize the potential and quality of your shots.
The new Circular Polarizing Filters include models for lenses with diameters of 9mm, 55mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, and 82mm. These new offerings promise to preserve the image quality and resolution about twice as effectively as the existing selection of Sony circular PL filters. The new filters also feature a ZEISS® T* Coating to minimize flare, as well as a slim filter design to prevent image vignetting and maximize overall performance. These features make the filters the perfect pair for Sony’s flagship G Master lenses.
New to Sony gear and haven’t figured out if you need these polarizing filters? If you do a lot of landscape photography, or even shoot a great deal of portraits outdoors, they make important tools for reducing glare, managing reflections, and darkening the skies.

49mm (model VF49CPAM2) – $100 US / $130 CA
