    FS: Cooke PS945 Soft Focus Portrait Lens

    Reluctantly I have decided to sell my Cooke PS945 soft focus portrait lens. I waited a couple of years to find it but have never really used it so I have decided to find it a better home. I have owned this lens from new, it is in immaculate condition with only light usage, and it is mounted in a Copal 3 shutter on a Technika style lens board. Everything is in full working order. It has its original lens caps and box (not shown in pictures).

    Here's a link to the relevant Cooke Optics web page: http://www.cookeoptics.co.uk/cooke.n...rgeformat.html.

    If you're in my neighbourhood (London, UK) then you're welcome to come by to inspect the lens. Otherwise feel free to ask any questions, either on this thread or by PM.

    Price is £3000 or a near offer. Shipping to the UK will be £30, to the US will be £150 (most of this seems to be for insurance), and elsewhere at cost. I would very much prefer a bank transfer of funds but can also take a credit card either in person or via my website for remote buyers. PayPal is OK too but only to verified addresses and in GB pounds.

    I found that the gentleman that designed that lens was about to start on one more lens, might have been for the 8x10 but I can't remember, but passed before he could complete it.

    There is no match for this lens. The Cooke lenses are in a class by themselves.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Just a quick update. I'm about to move house and this lens will go into storage for a few months. If you are interested in buying it when it comes out then please feel free to contact me.

    I have listed this on eBay (after a delay because I was moving house). Here is the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171270778327...84.m1558.l2649
