Does anybody know where I can get Cooke S2 or S3 lenses, and what sort of price range they are - are they similar to that of the Superspeeds?
Cheers,

Hii,

On Ebay in original mounts about $250 per lens.
Rebuilt by Century or Van Diemen then $3-4000 per lens. Usually the rebuilt lenses take glass from several lenses in an attempt to match colour and sharpness.
FWIW the exit pupil of the wide lenses is very small, this causes vignetting with a P+S adapter.

You don't give your location, but many top rental houses have them.

Hi,
I'm in the UK - can you reccomend any rental houses? It seems quite hard to find any lenses on Ebay.

A set sold on ebay 2 weeks ago. I think Panavision and Arri media have sets.
