Cooke's new 135mm cine lenses

Cooke Optics, will show a new pair of 135mm lenses for its 5/i Prime and Panchro lens sets at IBC.

The 135mm for the 5/i (pictured above) has T1.4 speed and the 5/i’s signature focus ring that illuminates when required, eliminating the need for external lights that might affect the shot.

The Panchro 135mm (below), which is being shown as a prototype, will join Cooke's smaller, lighter weight lens family at T2.8, and adds value to the lower-cost lens range that is often used for 2nd unit film shoots, TV dramas and documentaries.

Both lenses are colour-matched and calibrated to all existing Cooke lenses and feature built-in /i Technology, which provides cinematographers, camera operators and post teams with such metadata as lens setting, focusing distance, aperture and depth-of-field, hyperfocal distance and focal length in both metric and imperial measurements.

Both lenses will be available for delivery early next year.
