I do alot of actors/entertainers headshots, and use the XP2 super almost exclusively- especially where I'm not concerned with the possible archival problems of this film. However, I've not shot this film with the Leica yet- was used in my Canon A2. Perhaps the Leica will spit it out crying; "Hey! What are you doing using this chromogenic stuff?!? I am only to be using film that you must get yourself all chemically contaminated with@!!!"
