In the lead-up to the National Association of Broadcasters Convention, Cooke Optics has announced the latest in their line up of amazing lenses, the Cooke S7/i. As the push to larger full frame shooting, this is a welcome addition to the Cooke line up. These lenses and the re-released Pancro/i lenses, Cooke will be very popular at NAB. If you can’t find em on the floor, check out the ZGC booth. They probably have them there.
