Recommended Matte Box: Bright Tangerine Blacklight 6x6
This incredible zoom covers all the focal lengths of a set of primes at a fast T3. It is sharp, but has that smooth, flattering Cooke look and awesome wide-open performance. With its amazing minimum focus (2' 4") this lens can get extreme close-ups. At wide focal lengths the lens has ZERO breathing and at longer focal lengths it's extremely minimal.
"I would judge the Cooke 18 - 100mm as one of the very best zoom lenses. When I carry a zoom, which admittedly is not that often, it is usually this lens." - Roger Deakins
Not a bad endorsement! This lens makes fantastic images, and there’s a reason half the films of the 20th and 21st centuries have been shot with Cooke lenses. Also worth noting, the 18-100 pairs really well with the popular vintage Cooke Speed Panchros, having similar color and contrast.
This is the most current version of this classic lens, and it's in perfect optical and mechanical condition.
A 6x6 matte box like my Bright Tangerine Blacklight is needed to use filters with this lens.
Lens comes standard in PL mount, but I include a PL to EF adapter. Because the PL mount on these Cooke zooms does not protrude into the lens mount at all, you can use this lens on any Canon EF mount camera. Using a lens support bracket is a must though.
