- Cooke Varotal TECHNOVISION 18-90mm
A RARE CLASSIC WITH A RICH HISTORY
Powerful vintage zoom with souped up aperture capabilities
The TECHNOVISION Varotal 18-90mm is a rare piece of glass with vintage appeal. Originally built as a Cooke 20-100mm with a 3.1 T-stop, it was later modified by Technovision in Italy. The optical manufacturer then limited the longer focal range to make the lens significantly faster, then slightly extended the focal range on the wider end. The result: A super-fast, versatile zoom with beautiful vintage character.
Notably, Vittorio Storaro was a public advocate of the Technovision Varotal, using them on his work and advertising them for the optical manufacturer.
