Looking to answer the call for more cinematic looks, Sigma has announced its brand new line of Full-Frame Classic Art Prime lenses.
This new line of cine lenses is compatible with 8K shooting with large format sensors. At the same time, Sigma says that the lenses will still be compact in their designs. They’re based on the Sigma FF High Speed Prime Line and incorporates more non-coated optical elements. These elements should allow for “unrivaled expression while offering the highest resolving power in its class,” according to SIGMA.
Full-Frame Classic Art Prime lenses overview
The FF Classic Art Prime Line uses newly developed coatings on the glass elements and should offer consistent T value across the line. Plus, a special coating is used on the front and rear elements of the lenses. The coating buffs the lens durability to match other Sigma cine lenses.
Also, the line is compatible with the communication protocol of Cooke /i Technology. This protocol allows users to see and record lens metadata such as focus distance, focal length and aperture. That should benefit a lot of forms of filmmaking, like VFX that need for detailed shooting data.
“The Classic Art Prime Line is the latest solution from SIGMA to deliver the most advanced technology for creating a classical expression,” says SIGMA. “Offering the highly sought after classic “look,” the SIGMA FF Classic Art Prime Line will enable cinematographers to explore new possibilities in movie creation.”
