Cooke Optics, the multi-award winning manufacturer of precision lenses for film and television, will present a range of its latest lenses at SET Expo running from August 30-September 1, 2016 in Saõ Paulo, Brazil.

On display at Stand 168 will be the brand new true front Anamorphic/i 35-140mm zoom lens that will make its first showing in Latin America, alongside the acclaimed Cooke S4/i, 5/i, miniS4/i and Anamorphic/i prime lens families.

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. This high-profile 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.
