Cooke miniS4 Set – 18, 25, 32, 50, 75, 100 – f2.8.
In terms of colour and definition, the Cooke miniS4 are equal to the S4 and S5 except for a lacking diaphragm, which makes them lighter but maintaining the quality and excellence of Cooke trademark.
These lenses have the possibility of swapping the frontal element for an uncoated one. Without this special treatment (coating), we can have more flaring, softer edges and a slight cold colour, reminding of an “historic” look of the trademark.
