    Dear locutus,

    Either Delta 3200 or TMZ would be perfect for your application. It would be better if you could choose the developer but that is not possible. Use of a shorter lens that requires printing with a higher magnification will make the grain pop out more too.

    What happened to the Kodak 3200 film, has it been discontinued? That had big, harsh grain compared to Delta 3200.

    Which f/1.2 lens do you use?

    Hi,

    I use the Canon FD 55mm 1.2 S.S.C. and the Canon EF 50mm 1.2 L. The 55mm is the plain S.S.C., not the Aspheric. It is a great lens. Perfectly sharp even wide open. The biggest problem, which is only an issue in some cases, is the horrid barrel distortion. It is the worst I have ever seen from any normal lens. Thus, when I want to shoot straight lines near the edges of the frame, I use one of my 50mm 1.4s instead. I am looking into picking up a Pentax K 55mm 1.2 as well.

    Very impressive. I really like my Nikkor 1.2, but your lenses sound like they're on a 'nother plane. Meanwhile the sky in Austin is green and I'm wondering if the tornadoes that have just been sighted nearby are coming along with the storm that's about to hit. Which lens works best in tornadic conditions?

    I've gotten nice grain with Kodak Tmax 3200 exposed at iso 3200 processed in D-76. Just checked B&H and they show it in stock. You could also use a neutral density filter if needed for bright sun.

    I'd suggest a periscope for those conditions.

    Your Nikkor 1.2 should be on a level with any of my lenses.

    Don't let the "norm" fool you. Several years ago I saw an add in a photo mag for shooting D3200 snow in bright sunlight. Yes, it's true. It blew me away. I liked the results and the grain so much I started using it for every type of light - and with beautiful results. It did take a lot of rolls before I felt like I "got it", but now I use it almost exclusively. Several apuggers have posted their prints of D3200 and they are very inspiring, indeed.

    Good luck with your endeavors.
