    Beautiful set Stuart. The first is gorgeous, and the third from last also has a wonderful light.

    Nice Stuart.

    Wish I had kept my XPan.

    Thanks guys.

    Marc -- the Xpan is really something, isn't it? It does its job taking panoramic photos really well, and the lenses are just brilliant. It is a shame it is so limited otherwise (only three slow lenses, 30mm, 45mm and 90mm). If they had just had the foresight to make it Leica M mount and use the same registration (which they could have...no patent restrictions), they would have made it a MUCH more flexible system....who knows, we might have even seen voigtlander panoramic lenses.

    Definatly taken with an olympus OM1 or 2,not sure of the lens,think it was a 50mmf1.8,somewhere on the thames near richmond.The car belonged to a friend of mine,a beautiful ford capri from the early 60,s,nothing like the later capri,s.

    stewart, I like all a lot, I couldn't discard any except the last that looks like you used flash (and doesn't go with the rest).

    Thanks Gero -- no flash on the last one -- it is just ice on dark brown seaweed, so it looks very contrasty. It was just a grab shot at the beach.

    Don, *LOVE* the entire look --- that is the quintessential reason to still shoot silver IMO...

    Thanks Jack. Yes, I agree - silver just really is the business for some things.

    Here's another: same set-up but at f8.

    +1, Don. Beautiful!

    (Of course it might've been even better if you were 1.3x closer )
    Yes, I find almost all great lenses are even better when one crops away nearly 60% of the light they collect .

    Thanks Stuart. The building is indeed very interesting... 5 floors... Built in wood... Not maintained since the 60s... Lots of creaking every step...

    I have a few more shots (with interiors) here.

    Henrick: your shots really show the added smoothness of tonality one gets with medium format. Beautiful!

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Thanks William and Jack. The worst decision I ever made was to sell my original kit. The next best decision I ever made was to buy another kit back. I agree with the view that digi just cant do B&W like film can - much as I have tried!!

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Peter,

    I quite agree with you. Digi BW can look really good but I feel you have to put a good amount of work into it to make the tones shine. For me b&w, it's Trix with it contrasty and gritty look. I like the "bite" of bw film.
    I did try the silverefex pro with Aperture and it's my preferred so far to deal with b&w conversions from my fuji s5 camera but it's still not there(imho).

    Cheers
    W.

    HB 500/ 80mm and HP5.

    And one of my worst decisions was selling my mint XPan kit to you Peter. But I am really glad to see you using it so well and having so much fun.

    Hopefully I learn from my mistakes so not to repeat them

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    The 43mm is my favorite super wide angle for any system -- nothing comes close in my experience. Here is a black and white conversion from E6 -- this is in the Faeroe Islands, a town called Gjogv.

    Yup, the Mamiya 43mm is very impressive. But I've always thought the Pentax 67 with Pentax SMC 45mm does a pretty good job too.

    Here's one taken with Ilford FP4, scanned with my old Epson 2450.

    And a 100% crop from the 2400 dpi scan.

    Pentax 67....still one of my favorites.

    Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. Sinar F2, 210 Sinaron, TMAX-100. A complicated combination of tilt and swing to get everything in focus, which took me forever to figure out!

    Wonderful shots with that Sinar Francois! I'd love to see a large print of the snow covered trees and lake image. I also really like this Ottawa museum image...I've always enjoyed architectural photography.

    This is a 100% crop at 3200dpi -- we are maxing out the scanner here:
    Stuart,

    The more I study this, the more impressed I am with the resolution...especially considering how far away from the camera those buildings etc appear to have been. It must be a very fine lens indeed!

    I would love to see a head to head test between the Mamiya 43mm and the Pentax 45mm. Maybe we can meet up some day for a shoot out. And while we're at it, might as well throw the Hasselblad 40mm CFE IF into the mix as well.

    I realized later that I had taken a 100% crop from a 7x9 inch image that had been resized at 360 for printing....so it wasn't a 100% crop of the original 2400 dpi scan file.

    Here it is.....

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Hey Gary,
    That second crop does look better! I think the slight fuzziness in the crop from the mamiya is from the film (E6, not black and white), as well as from being shot handheld. I have not shot with the Pentax, but I do know that the Mamiya easily beats the 40mm Super Angulon for the Rollei, as well as the 40mm distagon CFE (non IF) that I tried. I would love to meet up with you to do a comparison. When are you next in Iceland? The amazing thing about the Mamiya is not just the sharpness, which goes from the center to the far corners, even wide open, but the utter lack of distortion. Straight lines stay STRAIGHT.
    For example:


    Or this one -- notice that the little girl at left is standing straight, not bulging toward the edge of the frame like she would be using a wide angle that has barrel distortion (for example, any 35mm super wide zoom)


    The lack of geometric distortion makes it look less wide than it is, in certain cases. It will let you get a whole landscape in, without it looking like you used a super wide angle.
