LOL! When I scanned it, I immediately thought "Daniel Ridings". When it
comes to black and white candid portraits, you are the LUG King. It *is* a
very nice portrait lens. I couldn't afford a new one, but was able to get a
like new specimen from KEH a while back.

Try that Prescysol, especiallyw with your Rollei stuff, Daniel.

I've been curious about this developer.

Most of all ... I'd like a 75/1.4! That looks like one handy piece of glass.

I like the portrait.
