Cooke Speed Panchros (also called Cooke Panchro/i Classic T2.2 8-Lens Set) combined a relative aperture as wide as f2.2 with an angular field of view and definition previously impossible with much smaller apertures.

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.
