Announcing the launch of “FF Classic Prime Line”

State-of-the-art resolution meets the classic “look”.
SIGMA CINE LENS welcomes a new series “FF Classic Prime Line” to the lineup.
With cutting-edge technology, SIGMA’s new “Classic Art Prime” offers unrivaled
expression for artists.

The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of “FF Classic Prime Line” as a new series in the SIGMA CINE LENS.


FF High Speed Prime Line has been offering the highest resolving power in its class, that is compatible with 8K shooting with large format sensors, while achieving outstanding compact design. Based on this product line, the FF  classic Prime Line incorporates more non-coated optical elements to achieve unrivaled expression. It retains the high resolution capability that SIGMA CINE LENS is well known for, and offers a unique combination of low contrast and artistic flare/ghost in the image. As with all other lenses from the FF High Speed Prime Line, it creates beautiful bokeh effects to improve creativity.

FF Classic Prime Line has implemented newly developed coatings on the glass elements and offers consistent T value across the lineup (14mm and 135mm at T3.2 and the rest of the lenses at T2.5). This will greatly contribute to the effective workflow in postproduction. Furthermore, it is compatible with the communication protocol of Cooke “/i Technology”, thus an ideal tool for shooting and editing with the latest technology, such as VFX. A special coating is implemented on the front and rear elements so that the lens durability is ensured as with all other cine lenses from SIGMA.

“Classic Art Prime” is a new solution from SIGMA that is required for the most advanced technology for classical expression. The “look” that FF Classic Prime Line can offer will enable cinematographers to explore new possibilities in movie creation.

Sample movie:  Classic Cine lens | Operator

“Operator” is a short film shot in Los Angeles, CA by Sigma America Cine Pro, Timur Civan, Directed by Bhavani Lee. A woman moves through an embellished house while she stoically waits to be connected. The piece was shot with the SIGMA Classic Art Primes Prototype on the RED Monstro camera. D.P. Timur Civan described working with the lenses: They are designed to create a visually striking, sensual image. The same power the standard Art Prime Cine set had creating optical perfection, the Classic Art Primes have creating an enigmatic and boisterous image. A surprise awaits around every photon.
