Cooke makes several sets of primes lenses, from the high speed 5/i set to the industry standard S4/i primes to the affordable Mini S4/i lenses. They are separated by T-stop but they all share the "Cooke Look". The Cooke Look is not just a slogan, it is a treasured feature of Cooke lenses for more than a century. What is this Cooke Look that drives cinematographers to covet these optics? To illustrate what makes Cooke lenses special, I shot several tests to try to illustrate four major visual traits of the Cooke Mini S4/i lenses -- resolution, flare, Bokeh and color. Watch the video above to see if the affordable eight-lens Cooke Mini S4/i prime set are the optics for you.
