Cooke TeleKinic Anastigmat 6 Inch f/4.5
Famous Taylor & Taylor and Hobson Cooke cine lens, great for 16mm and digital use.
Here's one of the later era C-mount lenses Cooke ever made. A great copy of one of the famous Cooke designs on the long end, great for portraiture.
Taylor, Taylor & Hobson Cooke is one of the most famous companies in photography and film, sometimes unbeknownst by many, but they have been around since the old days of glass plate photography, since the start of photography itself.
Unlike many of these brands that existed back then, Cooke still exists nowadays, still producing top of the line Cine lenses, unlike any other.
This lens is in great condition: The barrel looks good, there's a very light bit of wear on the bright chrome, but that's truly only visible due to it being so shiny to begin with. The focus is a bit more stiff than I'd personally prefer, but still very usable (Doesn't require silly force or anything alike) and will ease up with use.
No dust, no fungus, no cleaning marks, no haze, no scratches, nothing wrong with the coating (Reflects light beautifully), all as it ought to be.
The great thing nowadays is that whilst this is a great lens on 16mm, it's also a great lens on m4/3rds and Sony NEX on which you can mount this lens with cheaply available adapters, giving you the looks of the old Cooke lens with the easy use of a digital camera. It covers the m4/3rds sensor fully, probably even the NEX sensor. It would also be great for adaptation of the lens head to 35mm or full frame DSLRs, as often happens, as they cover quite a bit and render images in very specific ways.
The lens comes with the original hood.
If you have any questions whatsoever, don't hesitate to ask. (I won't bite!)
