Cooke Optics announced the addition of a 21mm, 27mm, 65mm Macro and 135mm to its Panchro/i Classic lenses during NAB.

Besides the new focal lengths to the Panchros, which are redesigned vintage Cooke Speed Panchro lenses from the 1920s, four new focal lengths have been added to the S7/i full-frame lenses as well. These include a 16mm, 21mm, 27mm, and 65mm. 

The Panchro/i Classic prime lenses offer a vintage look with modern housing, 30mm diameter (Super 35mm) coverage and a wide 2.2 T-stop on its lenses excluding the 100mm, 135mm, and 152mm version.  

The S7/i line provides full-frame coverage for cinema sensors up to a 46.31mm image circle. So if you're on a RED Weapon 8K, ARRI Alexa LF, Sony Venice, or Canon C700 FF, the S7/i series has you covered.
