Sirui has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help bring three new cine lenses to market. The new lens range - called Night Walker - consists of 24mm, 35mm and 55mm primes, each with a fast T1.2 maximum aperture. The large aperture is designed to make the lenses excel for low light shooting, where otherwise you would have to resort to high camera ISOs and incur an image quality penalty. The T1.2 aperture, combined with a whopping 12 aperture blades in each lens, should also make for very smooth bokeh in out of focus areas, improving subject/background separation.
