My Yashica Electro GSN is stuck, so I haven't used it in years... obviously a great lens
These are lovely pictures, the texture and sharpness really stand out. (Yashica lenses are superb too.)

I really like the color and the subject. Spring!!! I can't wait. Lovely blossom. The near focus is very nice, green and white/pink. Nice composition, too. I love to see your photos Colton, and I hope this was recent! I do not know that lens. Good work.

Not in the northeast or east coast. We just had more snow last night in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Looking forward to shooting some film and digital images of the cherry blossoms in DC.

Nice work.
Do you find that your Bronica focuses accurately?

Thank you. I don't know. I took one roll and I shot at 2.8 for most of it and most of it wasnt in focus. One shot was, and one eye was in a shot. I'm not sure if it was user error or not. Is 2.8 a lot thinner on medium format? Would a CLA clear that up if it is the camera?

Depth of Field is generally very shallow at f/2.8 with medium format. I might guess that many of your photos were back-focused? The S2/S2A cameras have a design flaw in that the ground glass and focus screen drift upwards (away from the mirror) over time. You can do search for Bronica S2A focus screen and you'll find lots of info on it.
It's not very difficult to repair from what I've read. My S2 still back-focuses a bit, as I don't have the ability to repair it myself, and I've not found someone to do it for me.

First film through the K2 with a 55mm f1.8 lens and Fuji 400. However for this shot I used the 24mm Sigma ultra wide.

Yeah very nice, great lens as well! The K85 has a pleasing soft "out of focus" area.

Phil.
