SIGMA to enter CINE Lenses Market

The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce that it will enter into the cinema lensmarket by releasing a new line of SIGMA CINE LENSES, designed specifically for cinematography. In the world of digital film production, there is an increasing demand for higher resolution, and SIGMA’s new lineup of high-performance lenses is compatible with the latest, high-resolution digital cinema cameras. SIGMA has developed its own production system by establishing the required technology for mass production of high-performance lenses for ultra-mega-pixel shooting.

The company feels this valuable new lens line could create a fundamental change in digital film production, and provide a new solution to cinematographers.

  • Unbeatable value – the highest optical performance in its class and outstanding compact design
  • Wide range of lenses for professional use
  • Optimized for the latest digital movie making technology

For the first phase, SIGMA will release two zoom lenses in Japan and the USA for EF and E mount camera systems. Furthermore, another zoom lens and five prime lenses will be released to the market in sequence from 2017 onward. SIGMA plans to develop additional zoom and prime lenses as well as add support for PL mount camera systems. The latest release information will be sequentially updated on its official website.

Delivery: toward the end of 2016 (in Japan and USA in the first phase)

Price: TBD

Mount: Initially Canon-EF and Sony-E to be followed later by PL.

*24-35mm T2.2 FF is not available in PL mount.

* The appearance and specifications are subject to change without notice.

FF Zoom Line

FF Zoom Line is compatible with a full frame image circle, and the optical performance is ready for high resolution shooting such as 6K – 8K.

This is the cinema zoom lens offering the highest image quality and compact design.
