Sigma 135mm f1.8 lens first look at CP+ 2018

In this video I am checking out the Sigma 135mm f1.8 lens at CP+ 2018. On the side of the lens there is a special focus distance switch as full distance it will focus much slower than having it preset to a certain distance. As in photo mode it focus really nice and fast, but in video mode I do felt I needed to use manual focus more in video mode as would hunt much more. Overall it is a nice lens, but being big heavy and not having image stabilisation on this lens, even with IBIS active on the Sony, you still see the image is moving quite a lot, so a support like a tripod or monopod is very advisable.
