Are the Panavision Anamorphic Close Focus primos as color matched as panavision assumes? Has anyone used them and how was the color grading experiance/process in post?

Are the Hawk V-series better color matched? Any comments?

Both are modern lenses, manufactured to very high tolerances, just like spherical Primos, Zeiss MasterPrimes, Ultraprimes and Cooke S4s so I seriously doubt there will be any noticeable difference in color.

Yes, color-matching really isn't a problem with modern line-up of primes in a series.

When I shoot with Primo anamorphics, I usually make the 75mm a Close-Focus, because this tends to be the lens I default to for those classic "dolly into a tight close-up" moves. You can do that with a regular 75mm Primo anamorphic but you tend to always bump into minimum focus.

Yeah, the 75mm seems to be the lens where good close-focus is most important. It is a lens that is wide, but still it doesn't distort too much if you move close into someone's face.
