    Tmax 3200 in DD-X.

    Maybe I should rename the thread to Normal Lens Black and White. Actually many earlier 35mm had a normal or lens that came with the camera of from 45 to 58mm or so. Another very nice example of what DD-X can do and at 3200! Very impressive Paul.

    Re: 50mm Black and White

    Here is another good example. On my Pentax H1a the 55mm Super Takumar was the standard or normal lens.

    Re: 50mm Black and White

    Love the first it is very innovative in the use of different techniques to achieve the goal. I think the photo is very effective. As for the second it has been a favorite since I first saw it. Love your beautiful tones and the sharpness under very low light conditions. A real tribute to the 50 mm lens.

    Thanks, Larry. I actually have a Minolta 45/2 also, but I haven't shot any B&W with it yet. DD-X is made by Ilford and it's supposed to be good for pushing film, which is why these are all high speed shots. I'm looking for a combo to use at my buddy's wedding in May. I've only developed three rolls in it so far. I have a feeling that after I try all these high speed films I'm going to come back to the old standby, Tri-X.

    50mm Pentax lens stopped down slightly if memory serves, and in a dark room with a wee bit of window light.
    Well I must say this is very different from the those first two you posted, but equally nice. I'm always glad to see Pentax images posted. My first serious 35mm camera was a Pentax I always felt like the early Pentax cameras didn't get the respect they deserved.
