Sigma just announced the development of three new Sigma Cine lenses in the FF High Speed Prime Line: Sigma 28mm T1.5 FF, Sigma 40mm T1.5 FF and Sigma 105mm T1.5 FF. With these additions, the Full-Frame High Speed Prime Line now includes a total of 10 lenses covering 14mm to 135mm and T1.5 to T2, giving cinematographers even more options to empower their artistic expression and take their cinematic vision to the next level.
I also have a feeling they will be adding maybe 1-2 more lenses in the future, but this is just my opinion, for now the three new lenses that have been confirmed are the ones above.
New Models in the Sigma Cine FF High Speed Prime Line
All the lenses in the FF High Speed Prime Line, including the brand new 28mm T1.5 FF, 40mm T1.5 FF and 105mm T1.5 FF, are compatible with full-frame image sensors and optimized for ultra-high-resolution 6K-8K shooting.
All three lenses come in PL, EF and E mounts with lens support foot and cap included.
The 105mm T1.5 FF is expected to start shipping first sometime in October 2018, followed by the 40mm T1.5 FF in the end of 2018, and the 28mm T1.5 FF at some point in early 2019. Pricing for each new model will be announced at the time of availability.
Development of LPL Mount
In the future, the Sigma Cine lens series will include an LPL mount, the new lens mount optimized for the large format sensor released by ARRI in 2018 alongside their ALEXA LF and Signature Primes. The planned release date for the Sigma Cine lenses in LPL mount is 2019 or later.
If you are attending IBC 2018 in Amsterdam later this week (14-18th Sept), you can get hands-on with the new Sigma cine primes and shoot some test footage if you ask nicely; be sure to go to the Sigma booth in Hall 12 (stand D64) to get hands-on with the new cine lenses.
