Hi, I am shooting a short in mid Jan in S-16 mm and considering using either the Cooke SK4 or the Zeiss Ultra 16. I wonder if anyone has done a test comparison with these 2 new S-16 mm lenses or if there are any online articles about it. i know the SK4 is pretty much the same as the 35 mm S4, and the Ultra 16 is faster than SK4, but wonder if there are any differences in color rendition, sharpness. any help would be appreciated. thanks and Merry X'mas.
Cooke SK4 vs. Ultra 16

In S16 you'll still get the same differences as in 35mm between these 2 lens brands, only magnified. To be honest in S16 I'd rather go with Zeiss lenses, because sharp lenses are more critical than in 35mm where already I find Cooke S4s to be a bit soft looking for wide shots. But then again that's just purely from a technical point of view, if you prefer the look of the Cookes for this film, obviously go with them.
