Funny, as I was working on my short “What to Expect” at NAB 2017 article, this info came about. I was mentioning the strong movement towards full-frame sensors recently and the lack of dedicated Cinema glass to cover it. Here comes Cooke.
The new Cooke S7/i Full Frame Plus Primes can cover your RED 8K VistaVision sensor (46.31mm image circle). Aperture range goes from T2-T22 and will be available in focal lengths at 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75, 100, and 135mm.
The glass will be available in June 2017. In the meantime check out this demo footage which was shot on the Weapon 8K RED VistaVision sized sensor.
