Cooke Optics has released a 19-40mm wide zoom in its Varotal/i FF range, which joins the 30-95mm medium and 85-215mm long zooms that were launched at the end of 2021. The 19-40mm zoom completes the Varotal/i FF series, enabling Cooke to offer broad focal length coverage. The Varotal/i FF T2.9 spherical zoom series offers high resolution, constant optical speed and minimal breathing throughout the range. All Varotal/i FF zooms are said to offer the famed Cooke Look™, and match the Cooke S8/i FF (at T2.8) and S7/i FF prime lenses, enabling cinematographers to preserve their creative intent when switching between primes and zooms. The Varotal/i FF series now offers focal length coverage from 19mm to 215mm. The new 19-40mm lens is the widest of the three Varotal/i FFs, and slightly lighter at 3.5kg (7.7lbs), with 30-95mm and 85-215mm lenses both weighing 4kg (8.8lbs). Being relatively compact, with close focus of only 320mm, this zoom is suitable for Steadicam work.  Cooke /i Technology connectivity is provided to both camera and the Lemo connection on the side of the lens, making lens data accessible to production from a zoom. The full Varotal/i FF series is now available to order and will be available to test at EnergaCAMERIMAGE which takes place from 12-19 November in Torun, Poland.  For more details, visit
