Originally built in 1983, this is a perfect lens for anyone wanting to get a great focal range while adding a generally softer, more cinematic look - this particular lens being known to have the classic “Cooke Look”, a term originally coined by the 60's/70's feature film culture in regards to most high end lenses built by Cooke Optics because of their beautiful, organic look and feel.
Has a variety of cosmetic damage, mostly around the lens markings, this is just from the finish wearing off, not any physical damage to the housing. All lens elements are clean and mold-free (last serviced by Visual Products), gears move smoothly, PL-Mount is rock solid, there is a standard zoom-motor mount, the Tilta lens support is setup for lightweight 15mm rod configuration, and the Excalibur built case is custom cut for the lens with spaces on each side for AKS. Front and back caps included.
Loved using this lens for the last few years, only selling it because I'm focusing on directing rather than shooting, so I'm not using it much anymore.
