The optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration.
Accessible via cable connector near the lens mount and contacts in mount that sync with /i compatible cameras and accessories.
All Cooke 5/i prime lenses are colour balanced, colour-matched and compatible with Cooke S4/i, miniS4/i and Anamorphic/i.
Cooke S7/i Primes have a true T2.0 aperture and cover 35/Super 35mm, Full Frame and beyond.
Every index mark is labelled. More detailed markings allow for more detailed focus control.
Cooke's Academy Award winning cam-style focus movement coupled with the added benefit of a large lens barrel diameter, has allowed for an increased number of focus markings, particularly at close focus. Spherical aberration has been controlled throughout the range of focal lengths to eliminate compensation of changes in back focus with aperture. A four-point contact bearing provides a smooth positive backlash-free movement.
The 5/i's patented, dimmable, illuminated focus ring has two separately toggled light pipes that allow the camera operator or focus puller to read the focus scale in low lighting conditions. Illumination options are controlled on the lens or via an external controller.
Cooke Hardened PL Mount with /i Technology contact.
Large, clear numerals on both sides of the focus barrel benefit the focus puller when shooting under difficult lighting conditions.

A nine-leaf linear module iris assembly is fitted into the Cooke S7/i Primes.
