Hey Mr. Deakins,

I recently worked with  the Cooke 5/i's and I loved them as much as when I used the Master Primes. They both have slight color differences and the Master Primes are definitely better in sharpness and CA. I was wondering since you moved from the Cooke s4's to the Master Primes, what's your take on the 5/i's? I remember reading in the forum that you loved the Master Primes because they had an additional stop which was helpful during NCFOM. Now since the 5/i's have that extra stop, would you ever consider using the 5/i's? Or would you still prefer to shoot on Master Primes? What do you take into consideration?

The way a lens deals with a hot source in the frame, such as a practical lamp or the sun, is very important to me. Also the weight of the lens makes a great deal of difference when shooting with the Mini and lightweight rigs.
