Hi all, if you've shot with this lens, what are your thoughts about it (good and bad)?

 

If anyone has a link to footage with this lens that they can share, I'd be interested to see it.

Do you mean the Cooke 20-100 t3.1? If so, it's a lovely lens, built like a tank, and exhibits that 'swirly bokeh' that people seem to like so much once you get past around 85mm

One con might be the size of the image circle, which is only slightly larger than 28mm diameter at the wide end, just barely covering 1.78 in S35. The front rectangular mask sometimes needs to be removed so as not to vignette. It's a large and heavy zoom, definitely not hand-hold friendly.

Getting a bit old in the tooth, but mechanically very well made, and relatively easy to service.

I shoot s35. The front matte is removed, and have no issues with any aspect ratio.
