Capture the classic Panchro Look with Cooke’s new full-frame lenses

Cooke Optics has added to its expanding range of full-frame lenses with new Varotal/i FF zoom lenses and Panchro/i Classic FF lenses.

The Varotal/i T2.9 zoom lenses cover all full-frame sensors and are matched in resolution, colour and fall-off to the Cooke S7/i range, thus providing a complete suite of Cooke full-frame spherical lenses. The focal lengths of the zoom lenses are 30-95mm and 85-215mm respectively, and the mounts can be chosen as either PL or LPL at the time of ordering.

Like all modern Cooke lenses, the Varotal/i zoom lenses include /i Technology to record invaluable lens data, and are optimised to capture the warmth, texture and beautiful skin tones which are the hallmarks of the famed Cooke Look. The lenses are designed for all shooting applications, including handheld and Steadicam, providing a comfortable balance ratio with the latest digital cinema cameras.

Tim Pugh, CEO of Cooke Optics, said, “Fifty years after the launch of the first Varotal lenses, we are proud to bring these new Varotal zooms to our customers.

“They are now able to choose an entire colour-matched Cooke line, complete with the Cooke Look, for their full-frame productions.”

The Panchro/i Classic FF range offers full-frame film makers the ability to capture the classic Panchro Look, as well as the Cooke Look, in their full-frame productions. The focal lengths 18mm, 21mm, 27mm, 32mm, 35mm, 40mm and 50mm have been specially redesigned to fill-full frame image circles. 

The 65mm MACRO, 75mm, 100mm, 135mm and 152mm in the standard Panchro/i Classic range were already capable of filling a full-frame image circle, so no optical or mechanical alterations have been made for these focal lengths.
