Hey lads,

Dont know if anyone else has talked about this topic, but i have some questions.

Has anyone used the Cooke S5's? if so , how did you find them vs S4? in terms of " feel " and " texture " ...

Any comments on them would appreciate a lot.

Thanks

Red Centre podcast recently had an interview with the head of Cooke and he said that at equal apertures between their 5i, S4, and Panchro lenses you'd be very hard pressed to tell the difference. I haven't used them myself, but to me this is a very telling statement. In effect the manufacturer is saying that but for the speed there's not much point in the upgrade.
