In a hypothetical set of a 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 75mm, and 100mm, what would be the difference in cost between the Panavision C- and G-Series anamorphic primes? I would assume the G-Series would be more expensive due to them being more recent, but then again, aren't the C-Series rented out more often?

Hard to tell, since there has been inflation and no one outside Panavision knows how much it cost to develop and manufacture both batches of lenses. I'd assume the G cost more because of higher correction etc. but they didn't have computers to assist on the C series.

Wow, I really need to start elaborating and stop being so vague. I was actually referring to the cost of renting them. Sorry.
