Jon, now I see what you meant regarding the distortion figures of the W-Nikkor vs UC-Hex ;-)
Impressive indeed.

Taken on a Sony A7 @ f/4. I kind of like the natural vignette you get at larger apertures.

Some photos snapped with my trusty Leica IIIf & W-Nikkor 3.5cm F1.8 LTM at yesterday's Setsubun (bean throwing) festival at Ikegami Honmon-ji Temple in Tokyo.

Great shots at the festival Jon!

Here are a few shots from the 35/1.8 re issue on the SP and S3 - Tri-X @ ISO 800 in D-76
I have to do rescans though as these are rough, quick scans without regard of scan exposure:

I always liked it processed in tmax dev.

I did! I'm glad I did too because film prices in Japan have gone crazy since then and the current locally available alternatives are about twice the price I paid for the Neopan.

I came to Neopan400 accidentally - I always used TX400 and when at some point TX400 hiked up in price in China mainland I tried a roll of Neopan 400 not expecting much - it was about half the price of TX400 back then.

I couldn't believe what I saw and since then always had a brick in the freezer until at some point I didn't shoot film for a few months and was completely taken by surprise when it was announced to be discontinued.
Prices since then exploded but luckily TX400 came back a little.

Neopan 400 is such a fantastic film - I always liked it. I have only one single roll left and am back using TX400 :-(

Here's a splash of colour for an otherwise predominantly B&W thread. Shot on Fuji Superia 400 XTRA with a Leica IIIf and LTM W-Nikkor 3.5cm F1.8 "classic".

Nice Jon! I love these shop front shots and do them too whenever I can.
It will be interesting to look at these in a few decades as time progresses.

Peter, Dirk, thanks!

That's enough colour for a while. Now back to the regular program of B&W

Here's some photos from the 2017 Kanamara Festival (aka Penis Festival) held today in Kawasaki City. Its an actual Shinto religious festival, but I don't think there's anything else quite like it in Japan. All photos taken with a Leica IIIf and LTM W-Nikkor 35/1.8.

Those are some great color shots Jon - quite interesting and funny to see this festival from a gaijin's perspective ;-) I bet you had a great time shooting these!

I lucked into two good deals on S mount versions a year ago. One was completely disassembled. After putting it back together I sold it for more than twice what I paid. The other needed some cleaning but was otherwise in nearly new condition. Of course, I had been looking for months for an affordable copy before these two deals came around. Just proves that patience sometimes pays off. I love using it on my SP. Have a roll in there now I need to finish off and develop.

You guys are killing it with the 35/1.8. What a special lens with interesting signature and character. Funny thing is that for an old single coated lens is how modern looking the rendering can be at the same time.

I now have two 35/1.8 Nikkors in LTM. I ended picking up a second one at a good price. There is oil on the blades and the front element has a coating scratch, but my main lens is perfect. I had to buy the second one because not only is it a rare lens, the price was crazy low, even despite the imperfections.

I will likely get the second 35/1.8 recoated by John at Focal Point.

This is a great thread. Thanks.

Cal
