TLS Re-housed Cooke Speed Panchro (6) Lens Set
THE REHOUSING WORK ON THIS SET WAS JUST COMPLETED.
THEY HAVE NOT BEEN USED SINCE BEING REHOUSED.
THE LENS SET IS IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP!!
Cooke Speed Panchro lenses rehoused by TLS (True Lens Service in the UK) are recognized throughout the industry as being the very best rehoused Cooke Speed Panchro lenses available.
No lenses exemplify "The Cooke Look" better than vintage Cooke Speed Panchros. The look of an image starts with the
glass, and no lens before or after the Cooke Speed Panchro
line of lenses has been able to match the organic, painterly look of Cooke Speed Panchro lenses-- no filter
or post-production technique either.
Cooke Speed Panchros rehoused by TLS provide the user with the beauty of Cooke Speed Panchro optics in a housing whose fit, finish and mechanics very closely resemble that of Cooke's modern S4 lenses.
(6) LENS PACKAGE INCLUDES:
18mm T2.2 Cooke Speed Panchro SIII
25mm T2.2 Cooke Speed Panchro SIII
32mm T2.3 Cooke Speed Panchro SII
40mm T2.3 Cooke Speed Panchro SII
50mm T2.3 Cooke Speed Panchro SI
75mm T2.3 Cooke Speed Panchro SI
This particular set of TLS Rehoused Cooke Speed Panchro lenses features Series I 50mm & 75mm lenses. These 50 and 75mm Series I lenses predate the Series II version. They have the same T2.3 maximum aperture as the later model Series II versions but are not prone to the yellowing that plagues the Series II lenses (particularly the 75mm lens which is well known for its tendency to eventually turn very yellow). The 50mm and 75mm in this set are by far the clearest verisons of a 50mm and 75mm lens that we have seen-- and we've been selling used lenses for over 25 years. Next to TLS (and Cooke), we have probably seen more 75mm Cooke Speed Panchros come through our shop than anyone else in the world. Not only are the 50 and 75mm lenses included in this set very clear, they also have great contrast.
