    I managed to get hold of one of these PS945s but haven't been able to use it in anger yet. Will post when I've something to show...
    That's great Ian. You do such beautiful work. If anyone can make the "Cook" sing and dance, it is you!

    Thank you Dave. I borrowed a PS945 a few years ago and have wanted one ever since. I hope it will be worth the wait.

    I watched few movies shot with Cooke Cinema lenses with digital backs and evertyhing was terrible. Colors were so dull , frames were unsharp , even an Holga is better. If I were you , I would invest in XVa and sleep well. There are hundreds of pictures by Adams used these lenses.

    I don't know Dave. I mean...the lens is breathtakingly expensive...and not many were made...maybe the precious few who do own one just don't hang out 'round these parts...????

    I personally cannot even imagine blowing that kind of money on a specialty optic (but, I have no talent to earn a living doing photography).

    That doesn't sound like either a lens or digital back issue. But a subjective creative post-production choice by the people resonsible.
