Canon brings its Sumire Prime collection to PL-mount with seven new lenses.

Previously only released for Canon’s EF-mount, Canon has dropped news that they will introduce a new Sumire Prime collection for PL-mount which will include seven lenses ranging from 14mm to 135mm.

This is big news for full-frame and Super 35mm PL-mount cameras looking for more high-end options from the Canon collection. The new primes have the same minimized breathing, balanced color, 11-blade iris, and bright T-stops.

Pronounced “soo-mee-ray” the collection is named after the Japanese word that is associated with “floral gentleness and beauty” and is ideal for smooth bokeh and gentle skin tones. Perfect for large-sensor cinema cameras like Canon’s C700FF.

Here is the full collection of lenses.

  • CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X
  • CN-E20mm T1.5 FP X
  • CN-E24mm T1.5 FP X
  • CN-E35mm T1.5 FP X
  • CN-E50mm T1.3 FP X
  • CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X
  • CN-E135mm T2.2 FP X

The 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm are set to be available in Summer 2019, with the 14mm set for Fall 2019, and the 20mm and 135mm scheduled for Winter 2019 or Spring 2020. Pricing has not yet been made available.
