Sigma Cine 40mm T1.5 FF Prime lens now available…

The Sigma Cine 40mm FF High Speed Prime lens, announced at IBC 2018 along with the 28mm and 105mm is now available to purchase just in time for pre-testing at the end of the year. The final one of the trio the 28mm should be available in early 2019.

The Cine 40mm is part of a 10 lens Full-Frame High Speed Prime set from Sigma which covers 14mm to 135mm and T1.5 to T2. Its inclusion is particularly important to the set for 2 reasons. Over the years this focal length has become an essential part of a typical cine prime set. Also it’s the first to be developed for cinema use rather than being a re-housed still photography lens made into a cine lens.

As with the other lenses in the set the 40mm comes in PL, EF and E mounts and is compatible with full-frame image sensors being optimized for ultra-high-resolution 6K-8K shooting. It has a 9 blade aperture for natural and pleasing bokeh, 95mm fronts and the already familiar industry grade build quality.

The FF High-Speed Primes also feature a clickless iris with linear markings, dampeners on each gear ring for silent operation, industry-standard 0.8 module gear pitch, and engraved markings for durability. Another nice touch is the fully luminescent markings which are a god send to camera operators when working in poorly lit situations.

All in all the Sigma Cine 40mm T1.5 is a great addition to the set which is already getting great reviews from many DP’s and cinematographers.
