Sigma is ready to make Cine Lenses according to latest news, during a latest interview Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma said to Resource Mag
How could one of the greatest innovators of lens technology in the world not be producing lenses for high-end digital video and motion picture cameras? With such high standards, cinematographers seem like a natural market for Sigma.
