Leveraging Canon’s heritage of optical excellence, the Surmire prime lenses offer new imaging capabilities for those working in the cinema industry. Devoted to detail, they feature a large-diameter aspheric element and anomalous dispersion glass, offering a delicate, velvety nuance when the aperture approaches its maximum setting during shooting. This unique optical design results in solid and natural image rendering, bringing impressive image quality and warmer tones to cinema productions. Supporting an 11-blade iris, all the lenses feature precise manual control, providing cinematographers with richer levels of rounded bokeh for better impression of subjects and softer rays of light—perfect for creating intimate shots that direct the viewer’s attention to specific details.

Thanks to their large lens diameter, a brighter T-number is possible, making these lenses an ideal choice for filming in challenging low-light scenes—as well as capturing the scene with a distinctive shallow depth of field – where ambience and atmosphere is essential.

Carefully designed for reliability and consistency

The Sumire Prime series lenses inherit the same subtle, warm colour tone as Canon’s full Cinema lens range. Such compatibility makes it easier for cinematographers to interchange lenses on a production without affecting colour tone. When shooting on busy sets, this unity reduces the need for time-intensive post-grading ensuring consistency across shots—no matter what lens is used. All seven Surmire prime lenses adopt the 0.8 pitch lens gears for both iris and focus rings and are positioned consistently on the lens. In addition to this, the lenses have the same front diameteriii, eliminating the need to adjust rigging accessories when replacing lenses. All lenses also have carefully developed focus resistance—enabling delicate and fine focus adjustments which can be made over a 300-degree rotation angle. Cinematographers can rely on dependable framing when composing shots as the lenses control focus breathing, combating the perspective variation that sometimes arises when refocusing to another subject.

Key features across the entire Sumire Prime series:

  • Compact Cine Primes with a new creative cinematic look
  • Interchangeable PL mount with full-frame coverage
  • Same unified colour tone as the Cinema Lens range
  • Bright T-number and an 11-blade iris
  • Reduced focus breathing
  • 300-degree focus rotation
