Sigma to Showcase Cine Lenses at 2017 NAB Show

Sigma Corporation of America, is showcasing its new line of Cine lenses designed for the digital cinema cameras, at the NAB 2017 show. Priced to meet the independent filmmaker budget, the lightweight and compact form factor makes it a win for one-man crews and smaller budgets.

The Sigma Cine lens lineup includes the High Speed Super 35 Zoom Line, the FF Zoom Lens, 24-35mm T2.2; and the High Speed Prime line. Appealing to feature film DPs, the Sigma Cine line offers versatility with consistency throughout the line, especially with its primes. High-quality, compact design and value price tag make Sigma Cine a natural fit for corporate, education and house of worship productions.

The Sigma Cine lens lineup at NAB 2017 will include:

Cine High Speed Super 35 Zooms  

18-35mm T2 and 50-100mm T2
The High Speed Zoom line offers the constant aperture of T2 throughout the zoom range with superior optical performance that is capable of high-resolution 6K-8K shooting. Delivering the highest image quality in its class, the High Speed Zoom Line is ergonomically compact and designed for E, EF and PL camera system mounts.

Cine FF Zoom Lens 

24-35mm T2.2 FF
Compatible with a full-frame image sensor, the FF Zoom’s outstanding optical performance also supports 6K-8K shooting. Because so few lenses cater to the requirements of the latest digital cinema cameras’ image sensors, this line provides a rare option for cinematographers. The FF Zoom is designed for E and EF camera system mounts.

Cine FF High Speed Primes 

20mm T1.5 FF, 24mm T1.5 FF, 35mm T1.5 FF, 50mm T1.5 FF and 85mm T1.5 FF

The Cine High Speed Prime lineup features lenses ranging from 20mm to 85mm, with all five touting an aperture of T1.5. Highly compact and compatible with full-frame sensors, these lenses offer superior resolution. They bring a consistent level of light to the production, offering greater consistency to any film’s color, contrast and overall look before it enters post-production. The FF High Speed Prime line is designed for E, EF and PL camera system mounts.
