I really like the look of Cooke S4s...guess I like warm vs clinical. I was quite excited when Cooke announced the new Panchro lenses, as they are arriving on the scene at just about the same time I'm gearing up to buy a new set of lenses. I've read the sales stuff saying they are the same image as S4 & S5 but a stop slower. I find that somewhat hard to believe given the tremendous price differential, but it would be very cool if true. T2.8 is pretty slow for a modern prime these days, but if the image quality is stellar, that might be enough for me to outweigh the stop loss. There are no sets out here yet where I work (SF Bay Area), so I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to shoot or evaluate them and might be willing to share their opinions/findings?

Cheers,
Paul
