Sigma Fills Out Nicely with 14mm and 135mm Cine Primes

Sigma has just announced the development of a 14mm T2 and 135mm T2 prime lens. Based on the Sigma ART line of optics, these two new primes will join the already impressive 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm . This news comes as no surprise to anyone who follows Sigma. The photo version of these lenses which were released earlier this year, seem like they were designed specifically to join the Sigma Cine family. They're a welcome addition and render the Sigma Cine Primes a powerful option for cinematographers.  The standard set of primes have yet to begin shipping and Sigma is already working on completing the lineup of primes. Once available, this will give cinematographers a Full Frame set of primes from 18mm all the way to 135mm. If you haven't had a chance to try out the 14mm and 135mm ART lenses (the primes that the new Cine versions are based on), do it! The optical performance of these lenses is impressive to say the least, even wide open.

The standard set of primes (20mm through 85mm) is due to begin shipping next month (May). You can find them all available for pre-order here. As for the two new models, no firm ship date or pricing just yet.
sigma_zoom_setIn other Sigma news - the High Speed Zooms in PL mount will also begin shipping in May with a few additions to the line including swap-able metric and imperial focus scales (authorized service centers) and fully luminous markings. The luminous markings of the 18-35mm and 50-100mm were previously located only on critical sections such as the focal length label and the witness marks. With the fully luminous version, all of the distance marks, witness marks, and critical info will be visible in low-light conditions thanks to luminous "glow-in-the-dark" paint. Sigma has also confirmed and begun the mount exchange program for their Cine lens which offers users to opportunity to swap mounts between Canon EF and Sony E mount for a small fee, similar to the service they already offer for their ART line of lenses. However, Sigma states that the service will not be available to change lenses from EF to PL :-( Be sure to swing by the Sigma booth at NAB to get your hands on the new 14mm and 135mm Cine Prime along with the rest of the Sigma Cine family. If you see me there, say HI!
