Just depends on what look you want. Minus development sacrifices midtone expansion and microtonality
to some degree. I'd rather have full development and use and accessory unsharp mask to bring the
highlights into control, provided the original neg holds all the relevant information. The whole Zone
System mentality tends to be taught on a generic basis. But even when Ansel put the last version of
this in print, there were radically different popular films available. Something like Pan-X was engineered
for high-key studio portrait and fashion work, with a very long sweeping toe, while Super-XX had a
deadpan straightline from the basement to the moon. Tri-X was somewhere inbetween. Then Minor
White basically made a nutty religious cult out of the whole concept. It really isn't all that complicated.
