Quick Look

To search for a particular set of lenses tap the 'Quick Look' icon on the start page
On the look-up page you can pick a Brand, a Type, a Keyword and Focal Length plus one of the Parameters.

Example: to find Cooke prime lenses with a Focal Length of 18mm weighing less than 2kg:

  • quick pick 'Cooke' for Brand
  • quick pick 'prime' for Type
  • type '18' for Focal Length
  • select 'less than' for Weight
  • type '2' for 'kg' (or use the Quick Picker to switch to lbs)
  • tap 'Go Look!'
To limit the number of searches with zero results we only allow Brand, a Type, a Keyword and Focal Length plus one additional parameter to be specified for searches at this time.

Tap the button in the upper right corner to clear all search fields.
