Tokina Vista Primes Now at CQ
Date: 6/29/17

The Tokina Vista Beyond Full Frame T1.5 Cinema Prime Lenses have arrived at CQ. Currently the 35mm, 50mm & 85mm lenses are available, with the 25mm coming later this summer. We have them for rental in a PL Mount, but many other mounts are available for purchase.

These lenses are a clean sheet design, not re-housed photo lenses. They were designed to cover the upcoming generation of full frame format cinema cameras due out within the next year, but perform well on all digital cinema cameras. They feature an image circle of 46.7mm, fantastic performance over a wider than normal T Stop range, and almost zero focus breathing.

Uncoated Cooke S4 Primes
Date: 4/19/17
Just as CQ was one of the first rental companies in the US with Cooke S4 primes, we're proud to be one of the first that will be able to offer these premium lenses with the "S4 Uncoated Cooke Look".

Per Jon Fauer, "the S4 Uncoated Cooke Look is lower contrast, milkier shadows, weird aberrations, flares, and streaks. In a word: “vintage.” Cooke chairman Les Zellan prefers the word “funky.” Cooke lens designers simply call it “uncoated” and leave it up to cinematographers to describe their creative compulsions."
