Just a general question for anybody who has used these two lenses. Would it be better to have two cookes or a set of ziess. I have a limited budget and cant afford a whole set of cookes but I can a set of zeiss.
I like the look of Cooke S4's very much, however they are fairly expensive to rent. If I only needed 2 lenese for a shoot, I would take the Cookes. If I needed 5 lenses then I would take the Zeiss Set. Its a decision I have to make all the time!
The Cooke S4 , Zeiss Ultra Primes and Master Primes have very wide spaced focus marks. Older Zeiss lens do not.

But the Super Speeds have a very nice romantic quality when shot wide open - the resolution really drops below T2.0 and they start to look very organic.
Thank you for your imput however I am a bit concused because if they are wide open they would be below T2 those lenses open to a T 1.3 So what do you mean by Organic? Im not being sarcastic I really just dont understand.

But some lenses resolution fall apart to a much higher degree than other lenses when used wide open - the Super Speeds are one of those lenses. So from T22 all the way down to about T2 these lenses are very crisp. But below T2 and T1.3 they become quite soft. Now, this softness, for me and many other DP's, is very pretty.
There's nothing like a close-up wide open of a face with these lenses - absolutely beautiful. That's what I meant by organic.
In this video I shot years ago, all the close-ups were shot wide open. It's hard to tell on these small photos, but they had a very organic, soft, inviting feel to them.
