This is the newest and most exciting addition : it's the modified Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art (EF Mount for Canon); a real gem!!! This lens is so unique because it's one of the very few existing lenses that are fully-modified for video/film, equipped with our own professionally machined Seamless™ Follow Focus Gears. Both focus AND zoom gears are firmly mounted in place making it a plug-and-play cinema ready lens that will save invaluable time when you're building out your rig. Focus and zoom gears are both machined to exact spec from the finest materials and are permanently fixed to the lens and can not be removed easily. Don't quote us on this, it's probably a good idea to look it up to confirm it yourself, but we're told the optics in this still lens rival those in the cinema-marketed version. Because the lens has to be modified to accept the zoom gear, the Sigma factory warranty is voided even though this is a BRAND NEW / OPEN BOX lens. We do provide full post sales support should you have any problems. We use the most well known, trusted, and experienced 3rd party lens techs we all trust, who just happen to specialize in Sigma lenses for our own "in house warranty" purposes. The lens is under our own house warranty for 1 year. We provide a 90 day return policy and warranty on the lens. The lens is being sold as Brand New, although the lens package was opened for the modification. All original packaging, paperwork, and accessories are included as they would be with an unopened box purchase.
Also included in the sale are tons of useful freebies in the form of a care package including a Simring 82-77mm / 80mm OD step down cinema ring and 80mm Slip On Cap for perfect mounting to your matte box adapter, lens wipes, filter kits, and some website stickers to show your support!
Using the 82-77mm/80mm OD cinema adapters will it seal out unwanted light and glare, but it will also add much needed functionality on long lenses like these by adding additional contact point on our lens making your set up rock solid. This drastically stabilizes the lens and eliminates dreaded lens movement on long lenses, especially when pulling focus way out at the end of the lens with higher torque FF... highly recommended!
A free ProOptic Lens Essentials Filter kit will ship with your new cine lens containing a UV filter, Circular Polarizer, and a Neutral Density ND2 filters, all in 82mm thread size that can be mounted directly on the 50-100mm before screwing on the SimRing 82-77mm/80mmOD cinema adapter.
