Just did a test on POC GG two days ago and here is what I have found:
the GG has the best diffusion of all GG I have tested (finest grain structure)
almost perfect for static. (grain is visible on soft areas but the grain is much finer than Beattie focusing screens)
light loss is above 3 stops (good enough for exterior day time) but almost unusable indoors (without proper lights)
soft focus is nicer than the way it looks on Beatty (subjective)
vigneting big time, (no surprise) just as any other GG.
Confusion: (I mean conclusion) : nice softs, razor sharp sharps, light loss, vigneting (you could avoid some of it zooming-in more and using FASTER lens)
very thin (bends easy) potential planarity issues. Best (I know)for static and worth a try but proceed at your own risk.

Dan, which GG from POC did you try? Their Light Shaping Diffusers offer a very wide range of diffusion angles, which (I'd guess) would have a significant effect on the amount of vignetting and light loss.

50 deg. Very nice image but the cost is light.

I owe it to myself. I took some stills of POC vs. Beatty. I am too old to fall in love, but the image is gorgeous (well,...except the light loss) and also the vigneting is ok (not that bad that is) (and the fine grain allows a zoom in to get rid of it).

Is this shot static? Looks very good.
I had the same with tracing paper (on rotating GG), it had beautiful DOF and mid-tones, but too much light loss.

Anyway, nice of them to allow you to play around with camera equipment in prison.

No, your actual black chapter: album15
I like the POC, for exterior shots, it'll be great, because the light loss is more of a gray filter, right? So I'm looking forward to outdoor tests when you are on parole.

The actual structure of the grain is different from Beatty. Most rewarding would be outdoor portraits .......
Found a 1.2/50. BEAUTIFULL lens but Pentax mount.
still dreaming of this lens:

Never really seen anything like this (I mean the organic DOF effect, not the girl)
It would be terrific on DV. Incredible, especially on B/W I think, now I reconsider to shoot B/W (not with such a lens though >3K)
