Revolutionary lenses for the era of 
high resolution digital cinematography

Performance born of SIGMA's experience in ultra-high megapixel digital photography— now ready to take on every challenge in the world of cinematography.

In the new era of high-resolution movie production, the arrival of reasonably priced, high-performance digital cinema cameras has changed the standard of what makes an excellent product in the industry and has expanded the freedom and potential of movie production. At the same time, when it comes to cine lenses, price and brand recognition are still often taken as proof of performance, which ends up being proportional to the production budget. In contrast to consumer products, professional cinema equipment is by its nature difficult to manufacture in volume, in turn causing lens R&D and innovations in manufacturing technology to lag behind progress in cameras. But SIGMA is different. Responding to the demanding requirements for lenses in the era of ultra-high megapixel still photography, SIGMA has developed the technologies required to produce high-performance lenses in volume. They have what it takes to offer a new solution to the cine lens market.

 

A lineup offering an astonishing combination of specifications and value— all thanks to our ultra-efficient vertically integrated production system.

At SIGMA's sole production site, the Aizu factory, they perform nearly all processes in-house, from parts and mold production to final lens assembly. This vertically integrated production system comprises both product development and manufacturing, making it a true one-stop resource. Their artisans bring expertise and skill together at the highest level in the pursuit of outstanding optical performance, while their suite of leading-edge manufacturing technologies make possible ultra-efficient, highly precise volume production. Offering a full lineup that delivers compact design and maximum optical performance at minimal cost. A lineup that satisfies every professional film making need while expanding the freedom and potential of cinematography. A lineup that leverages minimal equipment and investment to maximum results. With the goal of providing uniquely innovative lenses and unprecedented value, SIGMA has developed its new line of cine lenses.

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.

 

 

Image Quality

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.
