Hello,
Have any of you shot super 35 (w/2.39 extraction) with older Zeiss (T2.2 standard mount) or Cooke (S2 or S3) lenses? I know older Cookes were used for closeups on Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The wider shots used S4s. I'd like to know if there is a focal length beyond which the super 35 image would be compromised at the frame edges where these older, standard mount lenses are concerned.
Thanks.

Hi,

The Cookes have no problems with a 1:1.185 extraction.
