Lens maker Sigma has launched the “FF Classic Prime Line” as a new series in the SIGMA CINE LENS line alongside a new /i Technology-compatible PL mount lens in the FF High Speed Prime Line and the SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-31, a converter that allows PL mount lenses to be used on L-Mount cameras. 


Based on Sigma’s FF High Speed Prime Line, the FF Classic Prime Line retains the high resolution capability of the SIGMA CINE LENS, and offers a combination of low contrast and artistic flare/ghost in the image. The FF Classic Prime Line has implemented newly developed coatings on the glass elements and offers consistent T value across the lineup (14mm and 135mm at T3.2 and the rest of the lenses at T2.5). It is also compatible with Cooke "/i Technology". 

 

SIGMA has also launched a new Art Prime PL mount lens that supports Cooke Optics’ /i Technology communication protocol. 
 

Optimised for large-format camera systems and 8K shooting, the FF High Speed Prime Line lenses come with electronic contacts that supports Cooke's /i Technology communication protocol for Art Prime PL mount lenses. 
 

By using an /i Technology-compatible cine lens with a cine camera that supports the same protocol, users can see and record lens metadata such as focus distance, focal length, and aperture to help with vfx production.
 

Prototypes of this /i Technology-compatible FF High Speed Prime lens were used for shooting “Top Gun: Maverick”, scheduled to be released in 2020.

 

For SIGMA customers who have already bought a SIGMA PL mount lens, a new service to make their lenses /i Technology-compatible is under consideration. 
 

A production version will be on display at IBC.

 

SIGMA is also developing the SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-31, a converter that allows PL mount lenses to be used on L-Mount cameras. 
 

By using SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-31, users can use PL mount cine lenses  on the SIGMA fp and other L-Mount cameras. 
 

A production version of this new product will be on display at IBC.
