Somebody who did compare older 16mm primes? Is there a difference in terms of image quality between Schneider-Kreuznach primes (for Arri standard mount) and Cooke primes (Kinetal or panchro speed -series)?
Thank you for sharing your experience!
Regards,
Ole

From my experience, the Cooke Kinetal's are snappier, sharper, and have more contrast. The Schneider's are softer, lower contrast. The Cooke Speed Panchro's are sharper than the Schneiders, but not as high contrast as the Kinetals.

You can see clips shot with the Cooke Kinetal's and the Schneider's at the web site below:
