In September, Sigma introduced their Cine Lenses at the IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam. The Sigma Cine Lens line is Sigma’s first foray into the cinematic lens world.
At the time, Sigma didn’t have any release dates or prices for their new line. However, with PhotoPlus Expo starting in New York this week, Sigma announced pricing and release dates for two of their lenses.
Starting December 9, 2016, the Cine High Speed Zoom 18-35mm T2 and the Cine High Speed 50-100mm T2 will be available for $3999.

Demonstrated for the first time to the public in the United States, attendees to the 2016 PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo (PPE), held at the Javits Convention Center in New York City from October 20-22, 2016, can see first-hand the new Sigma Cine family of lenses:

Cine FF Zoom Line – 24-35mm T2.2 FF
