The “SF” stands for Special Flair because they allow you to kick the flares, bokeh and other aberrations into new visual territory. Cooke went one step further with their new Anamorphic/i SF lenses that are specially manufactured with a coating that allows for even more creative options.
The Anamorphic /i lenses offer superb optical and mechanical performance. Distortion, veiling glare, flares, and all aberrations are controlled at all apertures over the whole field of view. Like Cooke Optics S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i prime lenses, the cam focus mechanism allows for smooth focus adjustments in the Anamorphic /i lenses. Modular construction increases ease of maintenance and serviceability. The Anamorphic /i lenses are designed and made by Cooke Optics to their traditional high standards in Leicester, England.
All of the anamorphic lens characteristics demanded by filmmakers today -with the Cooke Look® and oval bokeh. That’s the Cooke Anamorphic /i lens Look.
With the Anamorphic lens, images are beautifully rendered for film and suited for use with digital cameras. The Anamorphic lenses correct aberrations exceptionally well over the entire image area – astigmatism, lateral and longitudinal colour – that will render shape, form and soul to your images.
While the "look" is crucial, precision engineering and seamless integration with other equipment is equally important. The Anamorphic /i, T2.3 prime lens in eight focal lengths are colour matched to Cookes S4/i, 5/i and miniS4/i prime lenses.
