First Look: Canon Sumire PL Prime Lenses

Canon announced their new Sumire Cinema Prime lenses today. This new set of full format PL-mount lenses builds on their popular Cinema Primes, which are exclusively in EF mount.

The name 'Sumire' is associated with gentleness and beauty, which describes the unique quality of these lenses – especially when wide open. The set comes in the same seven focal lengths as the Cinema Primes (14, 20, 24, 35, 50, 85, and 135mm) and has matching T-stops as well. These lenses are a perfect fit for the recent surge of full format cameras, especially given their unique look.

Watch the video above to learn more about these new lenses, and see some examples of how they perform in different scenarios. For even more real-world footage, check out this demo reel shot by our friend Matt Porwoll. Jon Fauer of the Film and Digital Times has written a special report on the Sumire Primes. And, if you want even more info, take a look at Canon's brochure for more details on the Sumire Primes and the whole lineup of Canon cinema lenses.
