The review article of the Cooke soft focus lens seems to be incomplete. The last paragraph reads:
"So, what makes this lens different from the other soft-focus lenses......" and that's it. I was looking for another page and could not find it.
I suppose the digital reproduction does not do justice to the picture presented, but personally I would be proud to have a pic this sharp! Seems to me the spherical aberration is corrected way too soon on the lens, I personally would have liked the soft focus up to f/11. But then that is an onpinion on the lens not the article. Maybe you discuss this on the rest of the article, but I could not find it.
