Has anyone shot with a mixed set of Standards and Super Speeds? How well do they match in terms of color, contrast and coating? Except for the obvious size and t-stop difference, how different are they in character? Thanks!

They are very similar in look and character. You may find that the standards are more prone to flare because of their older coatings.

They mix fine, better than the typical intercutting of primes with a zoom.

The standards have much prettier lens flare than the supers, you can sometimes get ovals and rainbow colors as you pan through a light. This may be just element separation due to age or a defect in the coatings, but I've seen them a few times on different sets and like the way it looks. They also have a smaller image circle so you will more see more light falloff on this edges.

Just did a shoot mixed em. went great. I like the standards more almost. Unless you are looking for a really fast stop/soft image effect the t1.3 is not really useful.

 

Standards also go nice and long I had super speeds up to 85 and then 100/135/180 standards

 

 

as said depending on the sets age and care you can run into different stuff though.

 

 

btw they are the same size. both are 80mm fronts as far as I know.
