"Recertified" CZ 135MM is a keeper
Aug 10, 2014

So the refurb CZ 135 from the Sony online outlet store arrived and it's probably going to become my fav pice of glass in short order. I was surprised how much I like this FL vs the lovely CZ 85mm. Essentially both lenses are the same in terms of performance and IQ, though I much prefer the internal focusing on this 135. It's a heavy beast, for sure, and with the hood on it looks like a formidable setup. I like it.

For anyone considering the refurb glass from Sony, I'd say it's solid - looks and functions like new, comes with the pouch and the nice metal hood and with a 1yr warranty not a bad bargain. In fact, the only difference I can see is the the lack of the standard box It comes wrapped in a bubble wrap (go figure?) and the sticker that says "RECERTIFIED", which isn't even a word

Quick shot just minutes before the sun hid behind the restaurant we dined at earlier tonight. This glass is definitely a keeper!
