I am preparing a feature film (2- or 3-perf, 1:2,35) and I am looking for a Zoom lens,
which is mixing in the best possible way with Cooke S4 lenses, that I love to use.
As the producer asked me to give him an equivalent list of equipment in Super 16 (for budgetary reasons) as well, its the same question for a Super 16 Zoom (like the Canon 6-66).
As I love the special look of the Cooke lenses, the softness - compared to the Zeiss Ultra 16 -
it really is my goal to get the same performance from a zoom lens.
Maybe someone here has already used a combination of Cooke S4 lenses and a fitting zoom lens. I would appreciate any advice!

The Cooke cxx 15 - 40 is an s4 zoom and matches perfectly as one would expect. The angeniuex optimo series also matches well but is slightly sharper.
