    Yes, faster lenses have more background separation, that is why many people use them; artistically for selective focus photography.

    The Cooke design is very sharp wide open. When all three...
  22. Re: Someone Please Tell Me: Difference between Cooke Series II and VI

    The level of softness is controlled via the set aperture and is not altered by the effect of bellows extension on the effective aperture.
