When Sigma announced last September that it was to produce cinema lenses more than a few eyebrows were raised. With Sigma’s recent improvements and high standard of Art series photography lenses, it people got quite excited, too. The first to be released were the 18-35mm and 50-100mm T2 zooms for Super 35mm (APS-C) sized sensors. This was followed up in April with five full frame 35mm primes.
Now their initial 8 lens lineup is complete, now that the Sigma 24-35mm T2.2 has been announced. It’s a full frame lens available in both Sony E and Canon EF mounts designed for shooting 6K and 8K footage. As a cinema lens it offers a long focus ring rotation of 180 degrees with manual iris control. It also contains all the necessary connections to pass information along for the camera’s metadata.
