I'm beginning to think I'm a little strange here. A new marshfront park opened here the other day and I took the gsn w/ ektar shot the roll and meh thought what's the fuss over ektar. Couple days later I decided to try ektar in the fed with a industar 61 l/d lens. Now I get it, in fact I am planning on using the fed a lot more and may even give up the gsn. the pentax 645 gives me a metered camera so I'm covered there. Guess i'm just suprized the fed gave me what i feel are better pictures sharper colors a bit more saturated but not overly so. In the gsn the ektar looked more like fuji superia 200.
