I've got 40+ rolls socked away, waiting to be processed. I'm waiting  
for the heat to die down a bit.
I've been shooting with the 2.8cm Hektor and a 3.5cm Summaron lately.  
I'm beginning to find that I use both equally as often.
I had a slight mishap with the 2.8cm, it came with a separating first  
doublet. A trip to Focal Point cured it of that problem.
I tested the hektor against a friend's 2.8cm Summaron. There is a  
slight difference in the mid range contrast, the Summaron has a  
slightly greater range there. I found that for my size printing, 6x8,  
it made that difference too slight to matter.
I use Neopan 1600, at 800, as it shoots like a fine grain film from  
an earlier era with those lenses.
