    Here is a slide taken on my 1965 LEICA M2 + 1957 90mm f4 Elmar collapsible lens and Fuji Provia -- it is a 'bit tight' in the frame but that is the scanner clipping it !

    I like it! That 90 is one of my favorite lenses, especially for portraits.

    Kodak is the only and best match for Leica. Fuji have ugly color palette and lots of saturation. Take same Picture with Ektachrome or Portra and you will reach what I meant. But I think Kodak Ektar is the worst film I have ever seen.
