35mm: Nikon F + Lunasix Pro, F2 and F3 or Kiev 2a/4a.
For the Nikons, my prefered lenses are the 24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 105mm f/2.5 or 135 f/3.5mm. On the Kievs I use most of the time the Helios-103 53mm f/1.8
followed by the Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 and sometimes the J12 35mm f/2.8
These days - by time and quantity, the Shen-Hao by far. Loved the nikon when i used it, now it just feels like practicing for the real thing
Will probably sell it in favour of more LF lenses and a new (grown-up) LF body. So I guess it's the format rather than the brand that's got me. Large Format = intrigue and challenge for me. Did I mention I love it??
