Full Frame and beyond.
Need we say more? The new Cooke S7/i lenses cover an image circle up to 46.31 mm diameter. That’s every format from RED 8K VV 21.60×40.96 mm (46.31 diagonal) to Full Frame 24×36 mm (43.3 mm diagonal) and anything on down.
Why would you want a bigger Cooke Look?
Full Frame and Large Format is gathering momentum. It is future-proof because these lenses work equally well on Super35, current Full Frame, VV and the inevitable arrival of new cameras to come.
The new Cooke S7/i lenses are extremely fast and go incredibly close. Maximum aperture is T2. Minimum object distance is around 4 to 6 inches in front of the wider ones. Front diameters are nicely compact at 110 mm.
Cooke /i Technology connections are in the expected places. Focus is the same familiar Cooke cam-drive mechanism that feels as smooth and silky as the image looks. The main difference is large format coverage.
Available beginning June 2017 in focal lengths: 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75, 100 and 135 mm.
Price will be between S4/i and S5 — and will be posted on the ZGC website for USA rates.
