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!
Mixing Zeiss Standards with Super Speeds

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.

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.
