Hi. I´m about to shoot a project on 35mm and I´ve the possibility of using a Cooke Zoom Varotal T4 25-250, but I´ve not tested it yet. Have you worked with this lens and know what is expected? a softer image compared to the Zeiss Standard 2.1 (my prime set of lenses for this project...)? We´re waiting for test results with century chart, but I don´t know if I will have time to test its ´look´. however, I would like to zoom during a shot...
thanks

Hi,

Breathing is the biggest issue, if stopped down a bit it's sharp enough. Don't think of doing any shots handheld.
