Thanks Umut ... I took your advice tried some color ... this was taken on Portra 160 that expired in 2007, exposed at f5.6, metering for iso 125, and processed and scanned by The Darkroom (Apug sponsor!). I don't know their workflow but I myself did not do any post processing.
Anyway, I really like this camera/lens for portraits. It's just as I had hoped.
