Cooke Optics introduces a new line of compact, lightweight, mirrorless-mount, affordable lenses. The new Cooke SP3 primes are based on a reincarnation of the legendary Cooke Speed Panchros.
Tim Pugh, CEO at Cooke Optics, calls the SP3 lens series “a significant strategic move into an exciting new sector that expands the horizons for such an iconic brand.”
The new SP3 primes are based on original Speed Panchros.
They have modern mechanics and a single optical coating.
At launch, there are five SP3 primes: 25, 32, 50, 75 and 100 mm.
They all cover Full Frame and have a T2.4 maximum aperture. The lens mount is easy to swap. You do not have to be a lens tech, nor do you need a clean room.
SP3 will come in E-Mount and RF-Mount as standard (RF-Mount will follow shortly after launch and customers can receive them free of charge). L-Mount and M-Mount are available as accessories. M comes in early 2024. read more…
