Specification

Innovative optics give maximum performance at full aperture over a continuous focus range, from infinity to close focus down to macro 1:1. Aesthetic imaging is produced with both film and digital cameras, and the lenses exhibit controlled flare and low residual aberrations, including distortion.

Our Academy Award® winning cam-style focus movement, coupled with a large lens barrel diameter allow for an increased number of focus markings, particularly at close focus and still readily focusing at macro 1:1. A four-point contact bearing also provides a smooth positive backlash-free movement.

Accessible via a cable connector near the lens mount and synchronises with /i compatible cameras and accessories. The electronics board has also been resized and repositioned for ease of serviceability.

All Macro/i FF lenses have a common fixed front diameter of 87mm, with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 mod and an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8.

The Macro/i FF range features a nine-leaf linear module iris assembly, which creates our trademark smooth, round bokeh.

Every Cooke lens is coated with a scratch resistant PTFE hard anodised finish, which provides a durable, hard-wearing surface to meet the most demanding environmental conditions.

Cooke Macro/i lenses have a maximum aperture of T2.5 across the lineup.

Every focus mark is individually calibrated and engraved on both sides of the focus barrel for ease of use.

The lenses are designed for all shooting applications, including handheld and Steadicam, providing a comfortable balance ratio with the latest digital cinema cameras.

To ensure compatibility with other Cooke lenses, the three new Macro/i FF lenses are colour balanced and colour matched for uniformity.

We offer a choice of PL and LPL camera mount options, designed specifically for use with our new lenses.

Our new Marco/i lenses are built to be tough, robust and work in the most demanding environments. They are extremely reliable and designed to be easily serviced and maintained for the very minimum of downtime.
