32mm Cooke Speed Panchro (T2.3) For Sale. Arri Standard Mount. Serial Number starts with a 5. I also have a 75mm CSP that I'm selling, listed here separately. I'm asking USD $2,200 for this lens. Preference will be given if there's a buyer who wants to buy both lenses together. I popped it on my Panasonic S1H and unsurprisingly, it doesn't cover Full Frame (see portholing picture in the photo album). This is a Super 35 lens, although there's a bit of darkening at the edges noticeable on these S35 4:3 aspect ratio shots, but it's *barely* noticeable in 16:9, especially if you're not shooting white walls, and certainly not noticeable in anything wider like 2:1 or 2.35:1. Typical of Cooke Speed Panchros of this vintage, it has some light coating scratches in the front and rear elements, (including one deeper scratch near the edge of the front element, see pictures) but nothing that would affect the image. Duclos told me there's some haze and contamination (see picture) in the optics, and some oil on the iris blades as well. It could use a service, or rehousing somewhere like P+S or TLS. I've included a few shots (of the camera operator figurine from a low angle), shot at T2.3 (Wide Open), T2.8, T4, and T5.6. If you're close enough in Brooklyn, Manhattan, or Queens, I can deliver by Uber. Or I can ship. Uploaded file size limits here are pretty small, so I'm going to see if linking to a photo album works: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmPk26hi
Good evening everyone! Looking to get a hold of a set of old Cooke Panchros to send in for re-housing at P+S in Germany or somewhere else where they do it! In my attempt to get a hold of a set of old-housed Panchros in suitable condition -- how important is it that the lenses are in absolute perfect condition? Almost all older lenses show some sign of wear like fungus, oil on the aperture blades and/or dust inside. Is that extremely critical or is it standard praxis that the re-housing tech firms clean the interior of the optics at the same time they do the re-housing? If not, are fungus, oil on the aperture blades and dust on the inside something that can get fixed for a reasonable price? Any guidelines on price per lens? What about cleaning marks or small scratches? I see a lot of advertisements about scratch-fixes etc. Can it be done in the first place and secondly, can it be done for a reasonable price? I'm not looking to spend the same amount I buy the glass for in cleaning fees. If that's what I should expect, I will go for another set of lenses. Let me know if you have any experience on the matter! Thank you!
