I'm looking for some ideas on intercutting between these lenses. The general opinion I have heard elswhere is that the Zeiss are more clinical and cool looking, the Cooke zoom is warmer and photographs skin tones beatifully (but I never used one yet). If there was a lot of intercutting between the Zeiss primes and Cooke zoom are we adding a lot of time, difficulty or cost to post production?
I'm maybe returning to film making after being completely away from it for 15 years or so. I'm upgrading from the Angenieux 12-120 and Arri Schneider primes I used to use. From limited experience back then, the Zeiss (MK I I thnk) primes intercut well with a Zeiss 10-100 zoom, it might have been a T3. Some nice standard 16 Zeiss 10-100 T3 zooms are coming on the market now quite cheap. Maybe this is still very usefull above a focal length of 20mm or whatever.
Can you compare these lenses according to the apparent sharpness, contrast and the colour?
- Cooke 10.4-52 /T2.8
- Zeiss 10-100 T2
- Zeiss 10-100 T3
Does the S16 conversion alter the properties (sharpness, contrast, colur) of either of these Zeiss zooms?
Too many questions I know.
Feel free to answer just a part of it.
