How many lenses do you really need? Sure, if you have an unlimited budget you can spend your way through just about any problem, but in our industry, especially when you are working on a tight budget, when it comes to high-quality lenses - you need to spend your money wisely. Investing in quality cine lenses can be a challenge, but one that pays off in the long run. But what if you can only have two lenses to begin with? Well, lucky for you, SIGMA have two incredible cine zooms that cover just about 95% of the focal lengths you'd need in a modern production.

While the allure of full-frame formats is undeniable, the enduring appeal of the Super 35mm format, akin to APS-C in photography, persists among cinematographers. Its cost-effectiveness and equipment compactness, notably in lens size, contribute to its attractiveness. However, it's the creative requirements, such as a broader depth of field, that often dictate the preference for Super 35 format. Additionally, the familiarity ingrained in audiences through countless Hollywood productions shot on Super 35 over the decades makes it a comforting visual experience for many moviegoers.

And also, with new top-of-the-range cinema cameras such as the latest ARRI ALEXA 35, it appears that S35 is coming back in vogue, making the powerful S35 combo of 18-35mm and 50-100mm from Sigma a desirable option for those looking for a great value for money without compromising quality.

Sigma 18-35mm and 50-100mm T2 Highlights:

    • Super-fast maximum T-stop of T2.0
    • Designed for S35 cameras/sensors
    • Incredible resolving power for up to 8K shooting
