Cooke Optics has announced four new focal lengths for the S8/i Full Frame lens series: 18mm, 27mm, 35mm and 65mm.

With an all-spherical design and T1.4 throughout, the S8/i FF lenses were developed following feedback from cinematographers wanting to achieve more realistic and cinematic images for digital capture. Cooke’s design team, led by ASC associate member Iain Neil, completed a wide-ranging analysis to guarantee maximum contrast performance for digital-camera sensors. The S8/i is designed to deliver a near-telecentric projection of light rays, which is more efficient for creating organic images that present as both sharp yet natural with dimensional roll-off.

Compact, light and agile, S8/i lenses feature Cooke’s latest intelligent /i technology, which includes /i data focus and iris position, /i motion inertial data and /i maps, Cooke-factory-calibrated shading and distortion data.

The S8/i FF series is now available to order in 18mm, 25mm, 27mm, 32mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 65 mm, 75mm, 100mm and 135mm. Five more focal lengths will complete the series later this year.
