    Are you getting the center filter for the lens? I would get one, without hesitation. That will slow the lens down even further. You can still hand-hold shots using 100 speed film, but it will depend on the lighting conditions you have when you're doing your street photos. I'd also look around for the lens shade for the 45. With such a wide field of view, it's more likely to have some sun or other light source(s) in it.

    Honestly, I have thought of buying the center filter for the 45mm, but I still haven't made up my mind. Mainly for two reasons: crazy prices for that filter, and forum threads with different opinions about its necessity (like here http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...p/t-25091.html). I think I will try out a couple of films and then decide.

    I shot a couple rolls without it, and while the vignetting is not terrible, I found it detracted enough that I really wanted the filter. Otherwise I was doing some strange burn/dodge patterns to compensate. It detracts from more compositions than it complements, in my experience. I know the filter price is nuts (it was even when you could get them new from Hasselblad/Fuji).

Here are a few 16x20 prints I made on my Focomat IIc.

    Great shot!

    Is this the 45 or 30 lens?
