In the new era of high-resolution movie production, the arrival of reasonably priced, high-performance digital cinema cameras has changed the standard of what makes an excellent product in the industry and has expanded the freedom and potential of movie production. At the same time, when it comes to cine lenses, price and brand recognition are still often taken as proof of performance, which ends up being proportional to the production budget. In contrast to consumer products, professional cinema equipment is by its nature difficult to manufacture in volume, in turn causing lens R&D and innovations in manufacturing technology to lag behind progress in cameras. But SIGMA is different. Responding to the demanding requirements for lenses in the era of ultra-high megapixel still photography, SIGMA has developed the technologies required to produce high-performance lenses in volume. They have what it takes to offer a new solution to the cine lens market.
At SIGMA's sole production site, the Aizu factory, they perform nearly all processes in-house, from parts and mold production to final lens assembly. This vertically integrated production system comprises both product development and manufacturing, making it a true one-stop resource. Their artisans bring expertise and skill together at the highest level in the pursuit of outstanding optical performance, while their suite of leading-edge manufacturing technologies make possible ultra-efficient, highly precise volume production. Offering a full lineup that delivers compact design and maximum optical performance at minimal cost. A lineup that satisfies every professional film making need while expanding the freedom and potential of cinematography. A lineup that leverages minimal equipment and investment to maximum results. With the goal of providing uniquely innovative lenses and unprecedented value, SIGMA has developed its new line of cine lenses.
SIGMA has combined the highest level of optical performance with compact design while keeping the cost of development and production to a minimum. SIGMA has played the leading role in the current era of 50-megapixel-plus ultra-high resolution still photography. Now, in the realm of cine lenses, SIGMA is leveraging the outstanding optical performance of its Global Vision still lens lineup, which has been acclaimed by photographers around the world. Featuring the same high-quality optical components including lens cells and aperture mechanisms, these cine lenses deliver the highest level of optical performance and amazing value.
While retaining the same superb optical system, SIGMA’s cine lenses feature a completely updated mechanical structure. Supported by this new design, the optimized specification includes all of the essential functions required for modern cinematography. Since its foundation, SIGMA has believed in achieving top performance via high-precision parts.This principle and SIGMA’s leading-edge manufacturing technologies have made possible ultra-high-efficiency mass production of these new lens lines.
The lineup covers everything from wide angle to telephoto. Produce an entire work with SIGMA lenses alone.
Compatibility has been confirmed with each brand of cinema cameras.
The High Speed Zoom Line is compatible with Super35, the image size standard used by typical digital cinema cameras, while the FF High Speed Prime Line and FF Zoom Line are compatible with a full-frame image circle.
T1.5 or T2 is available in prime lenses, while T2 is available throughout the zoom range in zoom lenses. These options enable cinematographers to realize a wide range of expressive goals.
Leveraging the high-precision, high-efficiency mass production technologies developed for its still camera lenses, SIGMA has made extremely lightweight and compact cine lenses a reality. Featuring all functions essential to cinematography, these lenses keep weight and size to a minimum, while their specification is optimized for enhanced durability. The end result is a combination of performance and compact design at the highest level.

With each ring and mount specially sealed to prevent water and dust from entering, this lens is ready for use in tough conditions. The unusually robust specification of the lineup allows the user to concentrate on shooting while significantly reducing the burden of maintenance.
The body is made completely of metal to stand up to tough professional use over the long term.
The specification, gradation baseline, and lens change indications all feature luminous paint to aid in changing the lens in the dark and other tasks. Moreover, new FULLY LUMINOUS versions of the lenses feature the above plus rings whose numbers and gradations are finished with luminous paint.
Information on rings and elsewhere is laser-engraved for use over the long term. In addition, tape may be placed on gradations without fear of stripping away paint when it is removed.
There are three requirements for outstanding lenses: fine design, precise manufacturing and inspection that ensures compliance with all specifications. SIGMA lenses are born of outstanding design concepts and excellent manufacturing technology, but they are not complete until they undergo their uncompromising lens performance evaluation. SIGMA has developed their own A1 proprietary Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) measuring system using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of their quality control inspections. Each and every lens is checked before shipping. Thanks to the ultra-high resolution sensors, high- performance shooting is assured.
To fulfill the high demands for image quality in still photography, SIGMA has solved a wide range of issues. The benefit of these efforts can now be enjoyed in cine lenses as well.
All of the lenses in the lineup are designed to comply with SIGMA’s CCI standard. Standardized color balance makes color correction a snap.
The lineup features the same optical system that delivers 50-megapixel or higher resolution in still photography. These lenses are therefore ready for higher-resolution shooting and are ideal for chroma keying as well.
