The growing demand for vintage Cooke Speed Panchro lenses from the 1920s to 1960s prompted Cooke to introduce a modern redesign of the vintage classic and these are the Cooke Panchro/i Classic, T2.2 to T3.2 Prime lenses.   

The new Pancho is apparently true to the original look of the now legendary Speed Panchro, recreates the same look and feel of the original with the advantage of modern glass mounted for today’s cameras. And, the new lenses come equipped with /i Technology for frame by frame digital information capture, as do all modern Cooke cine lenses for film and digital capture. 

The original Cooke Speed Panchro, designed by Horace W. Lee in the 1920s, was a cine prime lens that chromatically enhanced an image when filming under restricted illumination. Cooke Speed Panchros combined a relative aperture as wide as f2.0 with an angular field of view and definition previously impossible with much smaller apertures. They quickly gained a worldwide reputation for quality cinema production and were widely used throughout the 20th century.
