NiSi releases a premium range of prime Cine lenses with interchangeable mounts and suitable for full-frame cameras

5/4/18 - NiSi, the innovative filter manufacturer, has announced the launch of the brand’s first-ever range of Cine full-frame lenses. The premium prime optics feature high-end features and superb-quality glass, suitable for use by professional filmmakers.

The F3 range offers videographers a choice of five optics to cover a variety of popular cinematic focal lengths; 25mm T2.1, 35mm T2.0, 50mm T2.0, 75mm T2.0 and a 100mm T2.0. An 18mm option is also planned for the near future and lenses can be purchased individually or as a set with an impressive cost-saving (see prices at end of release).

Featuring a T2.0-T22 clickless aperture range, the F3 range combines retro cinema style with high-quality optics to deliver immaculate results when used with high-resolution cameras. With Geared Focus and a 12-blade iris design, soft and beautiful bokeh is assured.

The F3 series will be especially appealing to videographers working across multiple camera systems as the lenses come with interchangeable lens mounts covering PL, Canon EF and Sony E mount. Because the F3 lenses cover the full-frame sensor size, it means the optics can be used with the latest models, such as the ARRI Alexa LR, the Red Monstro 8K VV, Sony Venice 6K and Canon C700 FF.

All of the lenses in the NiSi F3 range feature the same physical attributes, which will allow for accessories to be quickly shifted from lens to another, speeding up workflow while on-set. Each lens offers a 95mm filter thread and all the lenses weigh under 1400g.

Prices for the F3 lenses start from $2,499/£2,099 for the F3 Prime 35mm T2.0, F3 Prime 50mm T2.0 and F3 Prime 75mm T2.0, rising to $2,999/£2,499 for the F3 Prime 25mm T2.1 and F3 Prime 100mm T2.0 optics. The full set of lenses, plus a hard case, polarizer and two allure mist filters is available for $11,999/£9,999.
