High-speed cine lenses15 September 2017
New high-speed cine prime lenses and high-speed cine zooms have been introduced by Sigma.
The 14mm T2 FF and 135mm T2 FF join its high-speed prime line, which will now comprise of seven lenses covering 14mm to 135mm (the others are: 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm – all T1.5). The latest models are based on Sigma’s F1.8 14mm and 135mm DG HSM Art photography lenses, and will support PL, Canon EF and Sony E mounts. The FF lenses are compatible with full frame sensor cameras.
Sigma’s compact new high-speed zoom lenses (for Super 35mm sensors) are the 18-35mm T2 and the 50-100mm T2, both of which come with PL, Canon EF or Sony E mounts.
Also new is the 24-35mm T2.2 FF zoom, available with either Canon EF or Sony E mounts, which covers a full frame image circle.
All the lenses have a nine-blade rounded diaphragm and are available with either feet or metre graduations, and optionally with fully luminous numbers/gradations for ease of use in low light.
