Key Specs
 Optical Design
The optics are designed to give maximum performance at full aperture with superior control of flare, distortion and spherical aberration.
Colour Balance
All S4 prime lenses are colour balanced, color-matched and compatible with Cooke 5/i, miniS4/i and Anamorphic/i.
All S4 primes have a true T2 aperture and cover Super 35mm format
Index Marks
Every index mark is labelled. More detailed markings allow for more detailed focus control.
Focus Movement
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. 
Camera Mounts
Cooke Hardened PL Mount 
Focus Scaling
Large, clear numerals on both sides of the focus barrel benefit the focus puller when shooting under difficult lighting conditions. Plus the the Entrance Pupil position is engraved on the lens.
