40mm T1.5 Cine FF High Speed Prime
Wide focal length coverage
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.
Lenses for both S35 and full-frame
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.
Strong high-speed lens lineup
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.
Inspecting each and every lens
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.
Minimization of flare and ghosting
Computer-based ray tracing has been used from the design stage onward to minimize flare and ghosting and enhance contrast in backlit conditions. Ghosting has also been checked at every prototype stage, with its causes identified, assessed, and eliminated.
Sharpness combined with outstanding bokeh effect
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.
Color balance standardized across the lineup
All of the lenses in the lineup are designed to comply with SIGMA’s CCI standard. Standardized color balance makes color correction a snap.
6K-8K class resolution
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.
Lightweight and compact
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.
Dust and Splash Resistant Structure*
The lineup features the same dust and splash resistant structure* as the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM｜Sports. 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.
* Although this construction allows the lens to be used in light rain, it is not the same as being waterproof.
100% metal body
The body is made completely of metal to stand up to tough professional use over the long term.
Luminous paint for enhanced visibility
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.
Laser engraving for enhanced durability
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.
