The Sigma Cine FF High Speed 14mm T2 and the Sigma Cine FF High Speed 135mm T2 prime lenses are the new stars from Sigma. See them in Las Vegas!
The new Cinema family of lenses from Sigma was first announced last Summer. The company has created, in recent years, different segments within its Global Vision line up, with Art, Contemporary and Sports families of lenses for photography. Back in 2014, Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki hinted at a possible move into the cinema market, and at Photokina 2016 the company showed two lenses: Cine High Speed Zoom 18-35mm T2 and 50-100mm T2, both available in the United States since December 2016.
The whole family of Cine lenses from Sigma is already a respectable collection now being expanded with the news lenses just announced: the Sigma Cine FF High Speed 14mm T2 and the Sigma Cine FF High Speed 135mm T2.
The high-performance Sigma Cine Prime product line, which now includes the following focal lengths and apertures – 14mm T2, 20mm T1.5, 24mm T1.5, 35mm T1.5, 50mm T1.5, 85mm T1.5 and 135mm T2 – is compatible with the latest full-frame camera sensor technology. Compact in design, the Cine Prime line offers outstanding optical performance and is ready for higher resolution shooting (up to 6K-8K). Both the 14mm T2 and 135mm T2, along with the previously announced Sigma Cine Prime and Zoom lenses, will be available for test-shooting at the Sigma NAB booth C11525.
Sigma is also expanding its service to Cine clients in different ways. For, example, it is now possible for customers to order their lens in metric or imperial measurements as well as standard or full luminous paint on markings. Existing customers who wish to swap from one measurement system to the other can do so for a paid fee.
Furthermore, as previously announced, Sigma is now offering its sought-after Mount Conversion Services for the Cine lens customers. The highly successful program ensures continued return on investment for customers, allowing them to convert their lenses between mounts. Available lens mounts are the Canon EF mount, which is used on the majority of digital cinema cameras, and the Sony E-mount, which is used on the Sony FS series.
