Guys, where can I buy Cooke, Zeiss or Panavision lenses for 35mm cameras; preferably a reliable, less expensive place where I could also buy previous series, e.g. Cooke S2, S3, as well as S4, etc. - are these lenses rent only?

You cannot buy Panavision lenses as they are for rental only.

For Cooke lenses, go to www.cookeoptics.com/

For Zeiss glass, go to www.arri.com

But modern lenses are pricey, Zeiss Master Primes are over ? 14K, Ultra Primes at least ? 11K. The older Zeiss Superspeeds should be less expensive.

Otherwise it might be worth calling around rental companies, if they are interested in selling some of their older lenses.

Visual Products at www.visualproducts.com is a good bet for used equip in North America. For Europe there's a German trade mag which I forgot the name of now, but they have tons of stuff to sell.
