Lovely! Two things to note: Your Retina with the Xenon is still a great performer and the development (did you do it?) and scanning is first class.

Yowza! If this was handheld I am very impressed, given the fact it's indoors and there's tons of depth of field. But that's a great shot regardless. Thanks for the nudge to get my own IIc off the shelf -- "they" say the 2.8 Xenon on the IIc is even better than the f2 version on the IIIc.

This is my first post here. I inherited my Dad's IIc and it sit's proudly in my darkroom. I have shot a few rolls with it, but not enough. It's been in my family since it was purchased new by my Dad in Germany in the mid 50's. I have always loved it and now I'm afraid of braking it, so I just look at it and take shots around the house from time to time. It's definitely a sweet camera.

Welcome to the Rangefinder Forum, and don't be afraid to use the Retina. They are meant to be used, and can still be serviced. :)

Thanks. I do enjoy my IIc. Got the f4 80mm for it but haven't spent much time with it yet. Need to run a roll or two thru it with that lens attached to get used to the focusing thing.
