Designed in 1945-46 by famed optical designer Gordon Cook, the Series II Speed Panchro improved on the design that made Cooke the standard in Hollywood where MGM, Warner Bros., and Paramount used them almost exclusively. Following in 1954, Series III was designed to address the use of larger negative areas (CinemaScope, Vista Vision, etc.) without losing definitions on the larger projection screens becoming popular during that era. This particular set was rehoused by Imaging.

We offer the following focal lengths: 18mm T2.2 (S3), 25mm T2.2 (S3), 32mm T2.3 (S2), 40mm T2.3 (S2), 50mm T2.3 (S2), 75mm T2.3 (S2), 100mm T2.8 (S2).

Please note that our lenses are not rented as a set, but as separate items.
