The new additions boast the same T1.4 maximum aperture, 0.8 MOD focus and iris gears, and M99 x 0.75 filter-thread compatibility. Cooke /i lens technology is built into each lens to provide various calibration data, such as motion, inertia, and distortion to your compatible camera and accessories via a cable connector.

Achieve smooth, circular bokeh with minimal color distortion and improved low-light performance, thanks to the 9-leaf iris with whole and third-of-a-stop markings and spherical format. Creating organic footage without sacrificing sharpness is a breeze with these prime lenses with their respective minimum object distance and wide angle of view.

The new lenses are not an exception. The 18mm features a 99° angle of view and 23.6" minimum object distance. The 27mm features a 77° angle of view and maintains a 23.6" minimum object distance. The 35mm features a narrower 63° angle of view and 27.6" minimum object distance, while the 65mm has the narrowest angle of view at 37° and farthest minimum object distance at 29.5", due to its longer focal length.

Invest in these electronic communication-enabled full-frame prime lenses to achieve greater control over your focus and iris in a single, lightweight PL-mount device. The new focal lengths in the range offer reduced minimum object distances and wider angles of view while maintaining consistent gearing across the lineup for easy switching.
