If you want the Cooke style but an insane coverage of focal length, look no further. I used this beast on a most exterior music video, so the T3 stoppage was plenty. We literally never changed lenses because we didn't need to. Our wides, mediums and tights were all covered. But we still had that "vintage" look with low-contrast, pleasing color rendition yet with enough sharpness from edge to edge to not cause any alarms. For any ambitious shoot where lens changes are not time-effective, this lens is a no-brainer.
