Sigma has announced their new line of E-Mount Cine Lenses. The Super 35/APS-C Sigma 18-35mm T2.0 and Sigma 50-100mm T2.0 will launch in November 2016. They’ll be followed by six fullframe E-mount cine lenses in 2017. Pricing was not announced but I’m guessing they should be around the price of Rokinon Xeen Cine Primes.
