Charming, Erik! I like this style of impromptu street photo. You clearly have a way of making a pleasant interaction.

Thank you, Doug. Twenty years ago the people in Turkey always said "Thank you" when I took their picture! Nowadays in Amsterdam they seem wanting to kill me.

Mabelsound, yes I did use the meter. The system is very convenient, altough a bit odd. You look trough the finder to see wich number is indicated by the meter and you select the same number on the lens. The f-stop ring can be turned so that either the f-stops or the special meter numbers are shown on the upper side of the lens. The advantage of this system is that measuring is always at full aperture and there is no need for a coupling between the lens and the camera.

Yeah, I have an FT, I was just curious how you find the meter. It is awkward but good to have, i think.

Yes, those tiny negatives have to be correctly exposed to produce a good print. I exposed the Tmax100 @ 50 ISO and developed it in Microdol X. In fact the Tmax100 made single frame B+W photography possible almost 20 years after the Pen F system was out of production.

I got a Pen FT w/ 38 1.8 a few weeks ago and have since added a 25mm 2.8 and 50-90 zoom. I've managed to push one 36 roll through (72 shots takes awhile ) and I absolutely adore it. Here's a couple of my favorites... shot with expired but cold stored Fuji Pro 160S.
