Based on the SIGMA 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art and SIGMA 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art announced earlier this year and leveraging their outstanding optical performance, these two new lenses will further expand the focal length range of the line.

New METRIC and FULLY LUMINOUS versions available to accommodate a wide range of cinematic needs
Selectable focus ring with feet or meter graduations
Based on user needs, a focus ring with either feet or meter graduations may be selected. For a small charge, SIGMA can also
convert the ring from one type to the other after purchase.

FULLY LUMINOUS versions
In these versions of the cine lens lineup, each ring features numbers and graduations finished with luminous paint for easier
shooting in the dark. (Both FULLY LUMINOUS and standard versions feature luminous paint on the specification, graduation
baseline, and lens change instructions.)

Mount Conversion Service available
Seeing lenses as valuable assets, SIGMA now makes the Mount Conversion Service available for its new cinema camera lenses.
Already successfully implemented for many SIGMA lenses, this chargeable service allows users to convert their lenses to and
from EF and E mounts. If you change your camera system, you can simply convert the mount system to continue using your
high-performance SIGMA lenses.

Note: The Mount Conversion Service is not available for PL mount lenses.
