This 40mm Anamorphic/i SF Prime Lens provides an added anamorphic flair to the classic, natural yet sharp "Cooke look". This Special Flare Cooke lens offers enhanced flares, bokeh and other aberrations, while complementing standard Anamorphic/i lenses. The 40mm prime incorporates an 11-blade iris for cinematic-looking, 2:1 oval bokeh. Designed for use with both digital cinema and film cameras, the Cooke Anamorphic/i SF primes provide a 2x squeeze, and cover image formats up to Super 35. For maximum optical performance, aberration, flare, and distortion control extends over the entire image area, and throughout the 40mm's T2.3-22 aperture range. The Anamorphic/i SF primes are color-matched with Cooke's Anamorphic/i, S4/i, 5/i, and mini S4/i series of prime lenses.
Each Anamorphic/i SF prime sports both a hardened PL mount and a cable connection that use Cooke's /i Technology to transmit lens data to compatible cameras. Lens setting data including focal length, aperture, focus, depth-of-field, etc. are provided in both feet and metric measurements.
The 40mm Anamorphic/i SF Prime Lens features a 22" minimum focus distance, focus marks in feet and meters, a relatively light weight of 7.5 pounds, and a compact length of 7.7". The lens is constructed with 0.8-mod geared focus and iris rings for use with follow focus, zoom control, and wireless F/I/Z systems. A large lens barrel, an increased number of focus marks, and Cooke's cam-style focus movement enable precise focus pulls. Focus marks are clearly visible and are engraved on the lens barrel in both feet and meters.
