Cooke Panchro/i Classic FF Lenses are a reworking of the vintage Cooke Speed Panchro. These lenses include Cooke’s i-Technology lens data system.
Panchro Classic’s have a similar look and feel to the vintage original. However colour and sharpness consistency between lenses is much improved. Lens housings are a modern cinema lens design, similar to the Cooke S4’s.

Camera Hire now stock Cooke Panchro/i Classic FF Lenses. These now cover Large Format, Full-Frame sensors as well as Super-35. Ideal for cameras such as the ARRI Alexa Mini LF, Sony Venice, RED Monstro etc.

Two sets of Cooke FF Panchro/i Classics are now available. Focal lengths available include the 21, 25, 32, 40, 50, 65 MACRO, 75, 100 and 135mm. Finally, the 18mm is due late 2023 (delayed due to issues with Cooke’s production – none currently anywhere in the world).
