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.

Patent details include:

Patent Publication No. 2016-9122

  • Published 2016.1.18
  • Filing date 2014.6.25
  • Zoom ratio 10.00
  • Wide-angle intermediate telephoto
  • Focal length 30.00 90.13 300.13
  • F-number 2.83 2.83 3.53
  • Total angle of view 2ω 56.98 18.72 5.71
  • The image height Y 15.55
  • Overall length of the lens 409.00
