Cooke Panchros Uncoated

Cooke Panchro /i lenses are now available with uncoated front elements. They can be obtained on special order, and can be swapped with the standard coated elements by a qualified lens technician. Uncoated front elements may help create a different, “historic” look — more flare, softer edges, etc.

A set of 6 Panchro lenses includes: 18, 25, 32, 50, 75, 100 mm. The 135 mm Panchro shown at IBC will be available later this year.

Cooke Lenses are distributed by ZGC in North and South America.

    That’s wonderful! Very cool. I wonder where and when I can do a comparison! Love to see this. I imagine there will be a light loss factor, yes? Considering regular glass reflects 4% of perpendicular incoming light, I guess it won’t be that much of a difference. Can’t wait to see what these look like.
