not much artistic value. just ran a roll to see what's up.
very nice lens but it has some edging on the bokeh balls wide-open. i see plenty of potential in this lens when shot wide-open and with the subject near the minimum focus distance but framing can be a pain.

i am really liking this lens a lot. I will shoot with this more from now.

Well done, Richard. What film/camera combo are you using?

Hello, Peter!
Just the S3 and Superia 100

I wished it had parallax correction but maybe I am asking too much

tried it this time on my cheapo NEX-3N, the camera that I use for testing lenses that's not for the F-mount


wish it can focus closer. swirly bokeh typical of some older fast lenses...


useful for lowlight..


on crop sensors, it's not wide enough...


close to the minimum focusing distance. really like the rendering of this


nowhere close to the nano crystal lenses in this regard but i like how it rendered this scene


this scene outside my studio is my lens damage test location. the bokeh balls should tell what's wrong with my lens. in this case, (not this pic) I got some artifacts where my lens has suffered coating damage due to fungus. looks like specs on the surface of the lens.

Yours looks very good, Jon. Mine (No. 352559) always has weak corners at the bigger apertures.

Nikon S2, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, Tmax400.

Erik.

Finally got around to developing and scanning the Neopan 400 I shot in Kyoto last December.
This is Sannen-zaka (Sannen slope) near Kiyomizu-dera Temple, a famous street lined with arts and crafts shops.

I genuinely miss neopan 400 so much. That mid tone crunch makes it unique in the bw world.

I was reading Dante Stella's piece on the Konica UC-Hex 35/2 and how it likely is a copy of the W-Nikkor C 35/1.8. Anyone use both and/or prefer one over the other?

The optical formula of the UC-Hexanon is similar but its not a copy of the W-Nikkor. More details here:

http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru....php?p=2692689

I prefer the W-Nikkor

I can see why! You are getting lovely results with your choice of film + developer along with the lens.

P.S. Perhaps copy was a bit harsh, I meant "similar".

What a beautiful view Jon! I also like the shot down the wooden staircase above!

I couldn't take any photographs outdoors for some time but here are a few I just uploaded all done with a LTM W-Nikkor on either a Mono or a M246:

Thanks! I developed the Neopan 400 (I have about 300 rolls left ) in Super Prodol. A good match, as you'd expect really.

Great photos Jon, of those two iconic Kyoto temples. I have to say, the Golden Temple, my least favorite of them all, looks much better in black and white.

A couple of very recent shots on some original Agfa APX100 film (I still have a few rolls in my fridge, but not many, alas).







Nikon S3 (classic) - W-Nikkor-C 35mm f/1.8 (classic) - Agfa APX100 - D76 1+1

Two true Chicago characters, Ol' School and Candyman, enjoy the morning and each other's company as they watch the women motorcyclists line up for the 48th Annual Chicago Pride Parade.
