    Recommendations Please.

    Like to learn a little more about photographic process, especially the photos developers and lens design(Optics).

    Any recommended books?

    There is also the Ilford Manual.

    No you won't, because the 15th ed. was written by many famous photogd & experts, and most of the info is applicable to any 35mm camera.
