I saw these on flickr, just absolutely gorgeous. I have the 43 and 77 and these shots just make me want to get into film, I think they feel right at home on a film body, just beautiful work my friend.

Thanks for those very kind words, Eddy!
I'm hoping to get the 77 next myself. Turning 30 this year, so maybe a special gift for myself is in order ;-).

I'd certainly encourage you to get into film. The process is a revelation in terms of engagement and joy.
I scan my images one by one and although at times it's frustratingly slow, it's always so much fun to see them appear.
The 43 is quickly turning into my favorite lens too, although I'm not a huge fan of the manual focus feel coming from a Takumar.


That being said, I think you're probably one of the best ambassador's for the Limited lenses on this forum.
I actually partly wanted to get the 43mm because of one of your pictures. I think some of them already have a very tactile quality that films usually brings to the table!

I definitely wouldn't sell your digital work short ;-).
