Newest lens acquisition for the 645 system…arrived from Japan despite the postal strike.
Minimum focus is a tad long for my tastes (1.2m) but it is hand-holdable at 1/60s.
Tri-X pushed to ISO 1600 in D76.
…which is silly, really.
It’s nearly 10 years old, and has no IBIS. It really only goes to ISO 2000, and the whole mechanism is just so dang infuriating.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no “sensor zealot…” But nothing really makes me as happy out-of-camera besides film. (And believe me, I have tried lol).
I wonder how long this ‘ole piece of junk will last…
Shortly after these were taken, the lens completely discombobulated and had to go back to the seller. Unfortunately the shipping will probably cost me as much as the refund I get back.
In any case, I think I am going to like shooting with the combo…though at times I still wonder why I haven’t given up on MF completely…
So so labour-intensive.
Tri-X 400 pushed to ISO 1600.
