Does developing influence sharpness of an image or the amount of constrast? Just some background info, I know it is still very difficult to determine the difference, but maybe someone can shine a thought on this. Option: 1. - Bronica SQA - 40mm lens loaded with TMAX100 and developed in HC-110, dilution B (1/31), 6 min and fix 2:30 min in Amaloco Fixer. 2. - Bronica SQA - 80mm lens PS/B lens loaded with TMAX400 and developed in HC-110, dilution B (1/31), 5:30 min and fix 4:30 min in TMAX Fixer. Now, I have been shooting about 8 rolls of option 1 from nature, negatives did not have lots of contrast and were sharp, but not really tack sharp, shot with Mirror Up, cable release and tripod, f8 - f11 etc. (checked everything so has nothing to do with motion of camera the unsharpness, I mean, negatives are sharp, but not very tack sharp). Option 2, I have done some street portraits, handheld and high shutter speeds, f2.8, f5.6 Does the fix give an image more sharpness/contrast? The negatives from option 2 are so extremely tack sharp and absolutely no lack of contrast compared to option 1. Or could a lens make such a huge difference, or a combination?
