Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America is inviting cinematographers to take advantage of its new Cine Trade Up program for the holidays. Sigma is offering camera operators, DPs and cinematographers $350 off a Cine lens or lens bundle purchase when they trade in their used EF, E or PL lenses.
The Sigma Cine Trade Up program is valid through December 31, 2017. Purchases must be made through U.S. Sigma authorized Cine dealers. Moreover, there is a limit of one trade-in lens per Sigma lens or lens bundle purchase and three trade-in lenses in total.
Sigma Cine high-speed prime and zoom lenses are engineered to “deliver outstanding optical performance in a desirable compact form factor. Renowned for their superior photo lenses, Sigma retains 100% of that superb optical system with their Cine lenses, which are designed for 6K–8K shooting and housed in a completely new mechanical lens design optimized for modern cinematography,” the company announced.
In addition, Sigma Cine lenses are manufactured by a vertically integrated production system in Aizu, Japan. Nearly every step in the process is done in-house.
Cine High-Speed Super 35 Zoom Line
The high-speed zoom line consists of the 18–35mm T2 and 50–100mm T2 Cine lenses. They offer the constant aperture of T2 throughout the zoom range. And their optical performance is capable of high-resolution 6K–8K shooting. The lenses are also ergonomically compact and designed for E, EF and PL camera system mounts.
Cine FF Zoom Line
Compatible with a full-frame image sensor, the 24–35mm T2.2 FF zoom’s optical performance also supports 6K–8K shooting. Because so few lenses cater to the requirements of the latest digital cinema cameras’ image sensors, this line provides a rare option for cinematographers. The FF zoom is designed for E and EF system mounts.
Cine FF High-Speed Prime Line
This line includes the 14mm T2 FF, 20mm T1.5 FF, 24mm T1.5 FF, 35mm T1.5 FF, 50mm T1.5 FF, 85mm T1.5 FF as well as the 135mm T2 FF lens. These lenses are compact and also compatible with full-frame sensors. They are engineered to bring a consistent level of light to the production. As a result, they provide greater consistency to any film’s color, contrast and overall look before it enters postproduction. The FF high-speed prime line is designed for E, EF and PL camera system mounts.
