Vintage Meets Modern with Cooke’s Latest Cinema Lense Release: Meet The SP3s
By Bokeh Rentals | September 18th, 2023
Cooke Optics, a renowned name in film since their founding in 1893, proves to be a timeless brand with their latest release. Influenced by the game-changing Speed Panchros, Cooke has introduced their newest line of Prime Cinema Lenses: the SP3s.
In today’s digital age, anyone has the accessibility to capture images in motion. However, shooting and conveying emotion-evoking stories demands something more. The SP3s do just that by allowing cinematographers the power of the vintage “Cooke Look” while incorporating modern technology to storytell like never before.
Cooke promises an “optically and mechanically optimized lens” with the SP3s for full-frame mirrorless cameras. The latest set of primes is guaranteed to offer impeccable resolution while mirroring the beautiful dynamic fall off of a classic Speed Panchro lens. You’ll find crisp, sharp focus on-axis that is designed to roll of towards the edge of frame.
The SP3s deliver quality images in 5 focal lengths. Listed below from left to right, the lens set contains a 100mm, 75mm, 50mm, 32mm, and 25mm, each full frame and at a speed of T2.4. The SP3s are also some of Cooke’s lightest lenses yet. Designed for maximum ergonomic performance, the weight of each lens ranges from 1.1-1.52 pounds depending on mount and focal length. The SP3s are E mount with user-changeable RF and L mount options, and an M mount to be released in 2024.
Lens changes are fast and efficient with the SP3s due to their dual focus scales. Focus and iris mechanics are aligned across each set allowing for smooth and efficient swaps without having to reposition motors.
The SP3s are available for purchase as a set of 5 ($21,375) complete with case, or primes can be bought individually ($4500.)
