Very good results! I am partial to #3. I do not understand why the fast Canon glass is so under-rated. I got back some results with my $27 Canon 50mm F1.8 and it looked sharp enough to trust on vacation. I will be scanning some shots from it next month. I have the f0.95, f1.4, and f1.8. I get great results from all three.
Has anyone used the Canon 50mm F1.5? It is a Sonnar copy; the other lenses are more from the Xenon family.
Where in the world did you find a $27 Canon lens Brian? Is it one that you sent over to Essex for a CLA? I have been looking for a year and whenever I see one it is always listed over or sells over $200.
......again, great lens! Did you process this roll at a normal time or pull/push process it. My last couple of rolls of Tri-x have come out with more grain than normal, same developing times and procedures. I typically rate it at 280 or 320 so I expect some grain but I'm getting more than I'm used to.
