After more than two years, I have to say that the 140mm Macro is still my favourite lens for this camera. The print quality is just exquisite, in large prints (such as this one) detail is resolved right to grain level in the corners.

Much as I've dabbled in smaller formats recently - and envy the quickness of shooting - there is still something really special about the quality of the prints from 6x7cm monochrome film. I have started to dabble in 4x5in also, but on that end of the scale, one cannot grab a snapshot like this easily when an opportunity presents itself. I guess this beast of a camera really might be the perfect all-round camera
