Choosing a manufacturer and series of lenses in the 35mm world is complicated. It's tough to do it purely on the basis of looking to emulate a particular film ("if I use the same lenses I can get the same look") when there are many, many other factors at play, not the least of which is pure experience and skill. In other words, a great DP can make far better pictures with an older, unfashionable set of primes than a less experienced person can with the latest and greatest.

That said, having just finished a two week job with the Mini35 and Cooke S4's, I can say that they are lovely lenses to work with but do suffer a bit from overall flare if there are hot sources in the frame (skies, visible backlights etc.) We had a tricky time matching wide shots to tight shots between two cameras in these circumstances, I had to dick around with the setup controls a bit and assume the rest will be resolved in post. The Zeiss speeds are very sharp, but older series are a bit finicky to deal with mechanically.
