Cooke Optics launches Varotal/i FF zoom and a Panchro/i Classic FF lenses
Cooke Optics has recently announced two additions to its range of full frame lenses. Two Varotal/i FF zoom lenses and the extensive Panchro/i Classic FF.
The Varotal/i T2.9 zoom lenses cover 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. The mounts can be chosen as either PL or LPL. The lenses are designed for all shooting applications, including handheld and Steadicam
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, 25mm, 32mm, 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. The optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration.
