Ok. I have never shot Acros and I would like to know what to expect (I have shot Tmax100 and other Kodak BW films)?

  "The new Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros II will reportedly feature “super fine” grain, excellent sharpness, and three-dimensional tone reproduction. It will also reportedly be improved over the original Acros in that it will provide sharper highlights.

Though it’s not mentioned directly in the press release, there’s hope that Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros II will share the original Acros’ incredible reciprocity characteristics. Not only does Fuji mention that this new 100 ISO film will be suitable for the standard “wide range of fields,” (architectural shots, landscapes, etc.,) but they also mention night photography and long exposure astrophotography, the last of which requires excellent reciprocity characteristics."

What's not not like??  

Here is an exhaustive list of 341 different developer recipes in which to develop 100 Acros II, most with examples of the resulting images:  https://filmdev.org/film/show/1016?page=1

IMHO, Acros II is a film that deserves the care and attention  of by hand developing at home, not the wham bam thank you ma'am developing routine of a commercial lab.  Here is another web page that addresses developing Fuji Acros 100 version 1.  I would expect this information to be applicable to Acros 100 version 2 also:  https://monochromnights.com/blog/2015/03/1100-rodinal-development

It's starting to sound like it's time to get out the M4-P and dust off my changing bag, developing reels and tanks! 😀

      Hello everyone.

      I'm so happy 🙂 Finally, my 🙌 TT Artisan 35/1.4 has arrived on Friday. And I love it. Everything started in this thread I made, asking for recommendations for a new fast partner for my ZM 35/2.8 Biogon.
      Here a micro resume: my decision a few weeks ago was to get a brand new CV 35/1.2 V3 ... But because of the current pandemic situation, I decided not to travel. Shopping online was not the case because the import taxes are super high in Mexico, so the best option was to wait. Eventually, I figured out how to buy a TT lens on Amazon Prime Mexico for the same BH price ($450usd) plus $38usd for shipping and taxes wow. Not sure why it happened in this way, but it did.

      The lens arrived with a slight back-focus issue, but I already calibrated with the help and expertise of a kind member with the screwdriver included in the box. It works fully 100% now. I can't believe how a cheap Chinese lens can make me so happy. To be honest with you, I was expecting, somehow, a worst lens. But this was a big happy surprise. That's why I'm writing this post. Once I am lucky enough to try and/or own a 35 Summicron or Summilux (FLE or not), I will tell you the differences and what I like about them. I don't have much experience yet, and I'm not a pixel peeper. 

      But for $450 only, a 35/1.4 that works perfectly with my M10? What I need more? For me, it has been a real bargain: I can feel now what it looks like to shoot w/ a focus tab; there is a before and after lol. I had for a few weeks a 28 Elmarit, but I really was a newbie, and I didn't appreciate the focus tab enough. Much better now when working with zone system, oh yeah! The lens hood is beautiful, small enough to cover the glass but not intrusive. Plus, the small window in the up-left corner it's very helpful for framing. The viewfinder blockage is very acceptable for me; it has never been a problem. I don't see it with the right eye (inside the OVF). I see it with the left eye. 😉😜

      Focus is very smooth, and it has a perfect throw. Aesthetics is beautiful, ergonomic is super fine. Lens cap ... 🙌
      IQ ... What can I say? You tell me. I don't do tests, detailed reviews with comparisons. I also don't know how to do that. But I do love very much to shoot. And to shoot with the TT 35/1.4 is a joy. The only cons I founded so far are weight. I don't know nobody so masochist that I prefer to carry more weight just for the sake of it. 100 or 200gr less can make the difference, I know. But If I'm happy with absolutely the rest, I can live with that. 
      I didn't have time to shoot with the lens properly; I mean assignment, work or calm street photography, etc. I just took photos at home at my dog, of course 🙂 And on the way to a work meeting, shooting with zone focusing from the window of my car. Once I will use it in different/demanding conditions, I'll let you know if I find some issues or concerns.
       
      So far, here a few samples at f/1.4.

      Hi All,
      I am considering buying a Zeiss 35mm lens for my M6 with 0.85 viewfinder.
      I can not really decide between the 2.8 and the 2.0 version. I would like to have the extra stop of light – but not sure if this would block the view- or rangefinder window.
      The little bit more money isn’t the problem – has anyone an Idea of the blockage with and without lens hood ?
      Thanks for thoughts and advice

      Hey everyone,
      I wanted to create a bit of a fun competition. Given the scary times we are all living in, Halloween this year will be spent in our homes and probably there wont be any trick or treaters. That is why its a perfect opportunity to share your “scariest” shots. These can be shots of scary subjects, scary edits or simply creepy shots you have taken.
      Rules: 
      Must be taken with 28-35-50-75-90mm lens One post per person (if you are going to post a second one please specify on the second post that it is indeed a second post) All type of photography is allowed Winners will be picked by the amount of likes on individual posts (I’m open to suggestions If you have any)  
      Good competition to everyone cant wait to see your best shots.
