Basically the recent Art lens optical designs in Cine drag with large cost premium. Probably a good marketing move by Sigma. The optical designs are already proven and cost sunk for the optical element fab equipment.

I know nothing really of Cine Lens.
Do they work well as camera lens as well?
Would they be no better than the equivalent Sigma Art Lens?
