It's mainly a personal taste issue. Some people feel that Cooke S4's are more pleasant and flattering, sharp without being razor sharp and contrasty like a Zeiss.
I think that Panavision Primos are brilliant for exterior photography.

The majority of film-making forums I use regularly seem to have, in general, a favourite lens - here it's Zeiss (Master Primes) but several others regard Cooke S4s to be much better. What is the reason for this - who is the culprit behind influencing everybody ???
MP pros frequently have extreme brand loyalties. Maybe it's the T-shirts and baseball caps.
