My box of Tmax 3200 arrived this morning. I have a sense > now of what my mission is! > > Joe Berenbaum I've shot in extremely low light. I shot in a dark coffehouse with my Noctilux (M-3/M6) with HP-5 rated at iso 400 and I did not, repeat, did not underexpose! I used a Pentx digital spot to place the faces of the poets on Zone VI. I developed in ID-11 for about 40-50% longer than the published speed. I got excellent results. Once I obtain a scanner I'll be sure to send you some of my images if you'd like. My spot meter reading of the faces was EV3. I doubt, that unless you shoot in pitch dark, you will not have a problem. BTW my exposure readings were 1/60 or 1/30 at F1. Hope this helps!
