Are cinema lenses the next big thing for Sigma? A new patent has hit the surface for a 30-300mm f/2.8-3.5 lens. With Super 35 sized sensors, this lens would become competition for the Canon Cinema EOS cameras. In my opinion, this is a smart move for Sigma because it will bring them more business with a more affordable, yet high quality cinema lens.
