The movement towards larger format sensors is still in progress.
Early examples include RED Weapon 6K and 8K, Sony A7 or ARRI´s new ALEXA65. Larger sensors deliver the film-look and an interesting bokeh due to their very shallow depth of field. These new cameras require lenses that can cover the larger sensor sizes.
With the RAPTOR lens family IB/E OPTICS and Band Pro offer a new macro family consisting of 3 focal lengths 100 mm, 150 mm and 180 mm initially.
