Ilford FP4+

That 75mm is a fine lens, it's got a nice FoV for general shooting. I think it's actually better suited as an all purpose lens than the 90mm

You seem to get a little more breathing room.

Great scan, too. I hate scanning color slides so much, and I've been debating sending off my last few rolls of developed but unscanned Kodachrome to Precision and let them deal with it. The stuff I've seen from them posted on RFF certainly makes a convincing argument.
The good scans from PCV and NCPS is why I started shooting film again. I don't have the time to scan them myself.

I like the 150 quite a bit. I like that it opens up to f/2.8. I also have a 135mm which I like for the close focus ability, and a 200mm f/4. Here is an example from the 200mm.

It's a Coco Taxi, a fairly dangerous, but ultimately cheap way of getting around Havana.

By the way, the first shot is of Eyjafjallajökull, in Iceland.

Decay, youth and nature shots. Great. The 105 is making magic possible.
And you of course.

You people do this camera a fine service. I just lost half an hour to an *bay session looking for one of these beauties. It's one of those cameras where the more brass is showing, the better it looks.

Might see if anyone is interested in a trade for my Rittreck 6x6 with 80/2...

Now there's a fun camera I've never heard of (but I know the Norita). I'm hoping to step up to a Mamiya 7 in a month or two, so if you decide you want to do it then, you have a deal!

I'm waiting in the mail for a Pentax 6x7 and a 105/2.4 Takumar. Was a real good deal for me and I'm very excited because at least I could shot 6x7 format which I like the most.

WOW. I've always been intimidated by the beastly appearance of the 67, afraid I would achieve chronic low back pain from hauling it around.

These pics just attest to its prowess, and the reason it is still being used by so many. This is the type of camera I would use for night photography in sketchy neighborhoods, since its size and weight will double as a weapon to use in self-defense in case of any danger!

Both of these were shot handheld with a Pentax 67ii and the 105mm f/2.4 on Kodak Ektar 100 (gotta love that film in medium format). Processed and scanned by Precision, super happy with their work!

thanks i've found the 6x7 to be surprisingly good for snapshots like this, as it should be given it's essentially just an (MASSIVE) SLR. but it's the size that makes it seem so unwieldly untile you actually pick one up and use it.
