Long story > short... the Cookes did very well. Ahh, that makes my wallet feel better.
In the blind test #1 my favs were the Cookes and the Red primes.
But they all have their strenghs. All very good lenses. I'm not as hot hot with the Leicas wich on the blinds were the ones I liked less each time.
So I know at least it's not for me.
Just come back from set and I don't know you guys but everytime we have a break in a bar, every assistant are playing with their I.phones. "have you downloaded this or that?".
The all breaks are spent in I.phones conversations. Each time it's the same.
I'm just looking at that with absolutly zero interest, but as it's the only topic that seems to animate the plateaux on the pauses, I feel somewhere out-of-the-game.
Am I alone not being interested at all in the I.phone gadgetery on set?
Or have you beaten also to this fashion guys.
Anyway, I want to thank Chris and the others for bringing this testing. Always informative. I needed to take zillion coffees and Redbull drinks to be able to watch them from beginning to end without falling in deep hypnotic state,
and avoided successfully a depression with the outdoor background surrowndings, but I value the time spent on that by all those experienced pros.
