(Leicester, UK--May 17, 2016) Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, will present a range of its latest lenses at Cine Gear LA Expo running from June 2-5 2016 at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood.

On display at Booth 67 will be the brand new true front Anamorphic/i 35-140mm zoom lens that had its first ever showing at NAB earlier this year, alongside the acclaimed Cooke S4/i, 5/i, miniS4/i and Anamorphic/i prime lens families. Of particular interest are the new 180mm, 65mm Macro and 300mm Anamorphic/i prime lenses which complete the 10 prime lens set.

Visitors can also head over to the stand to speak to a member of the team about the specifications on the new 45-405mm zoom lens that was announced at NAB. The new front Anamorphic/i 35-140mm zoom lens matches the color and depth of field characteristics of the existing Anamorphic/i prime lenses in the set with T3.1-22 aperture and 90° rotation of iris scale. Most notably however, this lens offers shooting from very wide angle to telephoto with a 4x zoom ratio and 2x anamorphic squeeze with oval bokeh throughout zoom and focus.
