Good morning, I'm having a hard time deciding between Zeiss CP2 vs ZF.2 to use on a 5D body. Lenses are optically identical but the Zeiss representative said that differences could be seen in the bokeh (14 aperture blades with CP.2 lenses vs. 9 aperture blades in the SLR lenses) and the better stray light reduction with CP.2 lenses. How noticeable could that be? Because I do not want to compromise the quality. The reason why I am considering ZF.2 is because of the considerably smaller size and wider aperture. The smooth cine-like focus ring on CP2 is great but can it become a huge burden if used by the cameraman himself with the camera mounted on a shoulder rig? That's my biggest concern because I do not have a lot of experience in using cine-type focus rings and I do not want to make the shooting hard, compromising the quality and maybe even physically impossible. The sturdiness, build quality and features of CP2s are really great but can it cripple the cameraman if he's just operating alone and handheld? Or is there absolutely no reason to go with it if the production is more guerilla and smaller size and weigth could matter (if the quality is identical(?)) ? That response about different bokeh makes me wonder...because I liked it on the CP2 but I've never used ZF and do not have the chance to compare them. Thank you very much in advance!
