Canon Introduces the Sumire Primes

Another pre-NAB announcement – Canon’s new Sumire Primes feature 7 focal lengths with pleasing character and a native PL mount. Read on for more details.

Check out our First Look video below. If the Sumire primes look familiar, it’s because they’ve inherited their base optical design from their CN-E big brothers. With a few adjustments here and there to provide a much more pleasing character, the Sumire are aimed at the more artistic cinematographer.
