So, my friend Ignacio Sánchez brought a BMPCC and some very interesting lenses to test it with:
* Cooke Speed Panchro 18mm T/2.2 (for S35)
* Cooke Speed Panchro 25mm T/2.2 (for S35)
* Angenieux 15-150 T/3.1 (for S16)
Plus my Leitz Elmarit-R 35mm f/2.8 that we used as a reference because it's already featured in my regular lens tests and I already know it's a near-perfect lens.
Let's see how they all did...
We didn't have time for bokeh tests, but we did run color tests, since some of these very old lenses have a very special behavior in this respect.
I will post the color tests first with the same WB adjustment applied to all the images (defined with the Leitz lens), then with a custom WB for each one (set using the first grey patch in the spyderckeckr). All the color tests were shot at f/4.
