The optical qualities improve when you stop them down, they're not so good wide open. It's something more noticeable with older lenses.

I suspect those older zooms may not entirely cover the Super 35 frame and you may have vignetting issues. I'd certainly check this with the lens you're planning to use.

Both lenses will not vignette on S35 and not on the Red One. The Angenieux is softer in focus and does milk more in backlight situtation than the Cooke. Also it is not as contrasty. An older zomm like those two are very heavy workhorses and need to be stopped down as mentioned before. Wide open I would not recommend using them or you taste is soft focus which might be a good reason for use. Make sure you will have a lens rod support. Both will not easily match with modern prime lenses without a good amount of sharpening in post with all the known disadvantages.
