Sigma’s popular ART lens range has now increased to seven with the launch of an ultra-wide 14mm f/1.8 and 135mm f/1.8 primes and a 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom for full-frame Canon, Nikon and Sigma bodies.

Sigma claims the 14mm optic is the world's first and only F1.8 ultra-wide-angle lens amd has nine rounded aperture blades for smooth out-of-focus rendering. The weather-sealed 24-70mm also has nine rounded aperture blades and image stabilisation. And the 135mm f/1.8 uses an accelerometer to detects the orientation of the lens so the AF system can respond to varying loads on the focusing group due to gravity.

No pricing or availability details have yet been released. Sigma’s official information says:

Get your hands on the brand new Zeiss Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 on the Sony FS7 camera on the Zeiss stand at the BVE show at Excel in London on February 28-March 2. The official Zeiss information says:

Samyang has revealed a new full-frame 20mm T1.9 XEEN Cinema prime lens - its eighth cine lens. It's made to match its siblings with the focus and aperture rings in the same place.

It should be available next month in the UK for £1799.99/ $2250. The official press release says:
