Sumire Prime

The Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X lens offers a compact, consistent lens design and proven Canon lens elements for performance and reliability in professional shooting environments.

Key Features:

  • Artistically Pleasing Image Rendering
  • Outstanding Optical Performance to Support 4K Cameras
  • Support for the latest Full-frame and Super 35mm PL-mount Cameras from leading manufacturers
  • 11-Blade Iris
  • Outstanding Operability and Reliability

Sumire, pronounced "Soo-mee-ray," is the name of a Japanese flower, and like the petals of a flower, Canon's lenses are most beautiful when fully opened. This is the inspiration behind the Sumire look.

Intended for the working professional, Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X lens has markings on angled surfaces on both sides of the barrel, making it easy to read focus and aperture settings from behind or from either side of the camera. Focus markings can even be switched from standard labeling to metric. The control rings are engineered to maintain the proper amount of resistance with consistent operating torque.

Designed to fulfill contemporary 4K production standards, it features a full-frame imaging circle in a lightweight, compact design. This phenomenal lens is also perfect for any number of applications. It also features an 11-blade aperture diaphragm for beautiful background blur and innovative glass construction that counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature induced marking discrepancies.

Sumire Prime Lenses

Canon's brilliant Sumire Prime lenses offer spectacular optical performance for demanding high-end productions. Sharing the same gear position, front diameter and rotation angle, the lenses' compatibility with third-party accessories allows crews to easily change lenses without making adjustments to the rig setup. Perfect on the EOS C700 FF, these lenses are designed for use with the latest full-frame and Super 35mm PL-mount cameras from leading manufacturers.


Artistically Pleasing Image Rendering

The CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X Sumire Prime Lens introduces a unique optical design with a nuanced look as the lens aperture approaches its maximum setting – subtly modifying the textural renderings of the human facial close-up. It also smooths the transition to the fall-off portions of the scene resulting in pleasing bokeh.

Outstanding Optical Performance to Support 4K Cameras

High Resolution and Warm Colours

The lens features a large diameter aspheric lens and anomalous dispersion glass, working to deliver high resolution imaging from the center of the image to the outer edges. This helps bring out the high quality of 4K cinema images. The lens produces warm colour tones that help to softly capture facial expressions and enable better depiction of textures captured through the lens.

Fast T Number

Operating at T3.1 allows users to shoot brighter in low-light settings and with softer and greater bokeh.

Unified Warm Colour Balance within Canon Cinema Lenses

Canon’s colour science has become highly refined over generations of lens designs, paying the closest attention to a pleasing skin tone reproduction. The Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X can be used interchangeably with other Canon Cinema lenses during the same production since they all have the same warm colour characteristics — making it easier to maintain consistent colour when multiple lenses are used.

Minimized Focus Breathing

The lens has been designed to minimize variations in the angle of view while focusing, a phenomenon known as focus breathing. This feature is extremely important while focus pulling, where changes in the angle of view due to focus breathing could become apparent to the viewer.

Support for the latest Full-frame Cameras

Support for the latest Full-frame & Super 35mm PL-mount Cameras from leading manufacturers

The Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X covers full-frame and Super 35mm sensors and works well with today’s full-frame cameras from leading manufacturers.

11-Blade Iris

The Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X features an 11-blade iris. This produces artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas, creating a more three-dimensional bokeh with a deeper depth of field that a super wide-angle lens can offer, broadening the range of visual expression. The use of an odd number of blades also helps reduce flaring of specular highlights. Additionally, the iris ring is mechanically controlled with no click stops for smooth exposure adjustments while recording.

Outstanding Operability and Reliability

Designed to meet the needs of professional cinematographers, the Sumire Prime CN-E14mm T3.1 FP X features a unified front diameter (114mm), rotation angle (300°) and gear position on the focus and iris rings (making lens switching quick and convenient) across Canon's entire Sumire Prime Lens series. The control rings work to maintain the right amount of resistance and operating torque in order to help provide the camera operator or assistant with a consistent feel and predictable lens operation. In addition, matte boxes and accessories can be used even after switching lenses.

Visible Distance Indicators

Distance indicators are displayed on both sides of the lens. To improve visibility in nighttime and dark area shooting, indicator markings with phosphorescent paint have been adopted for the front barrel (for right-side viewing).
