For a shot like this, the only difference would be halation around the mirror in the background. Tones would be very similar, though.

On the other hand, 500T can be had for $7/roll, whereas...

Not Cinestill, per se, but Kodak 500T (5219), which is the source stock with the RemJet on (so none of that love-it-or-hate-it halation).

I actually think it's the opposite problem.

The 80 f/4 has the DoF of a 40 f/2 (roughly speaking) on 35mm. That's fairly shallow (2.25ft DoF at 10ft @ f/4). However, you're at f/4, which means...
