Pre-Order the Sumire Prime Lenses
Today Canon has announced a new range of high-end cinema prime lenses, the Sumire range of cinema lenses.
These lenses are a wonderful addition to Canons lineup and are a completely new optical design, and the new lineup sits above their existing CN-E set of prime lenses.
Canon has said that during the design of these lenses, they studied their vintage K35 lenses, and incorporated some of the ideas behind those lenses, into the design of the new Sumire primes. There are seven lenses in the new lineup:
Unlike their existing CN-E primes, the Sumire primes are PL mount only. Canon has said that the lenses produce soft and pleasing out of focus areas, a stronger flare and give a nice focus falloff from your subject.
The lenses have an 11 blade iris, 300-degree focus rotation, and glow in the dark markings on the side of the lenses.
