As you can see, this little camera doesn't have the best lens (a lot of vignetting and not very sharp).
As you note, the XA does vignette wide open at f/2.8, but you should be able to get sharp results. Sharpness was/is one of the hallmarks of the Zuiko 35/2.8. I don't have any full-resolution crops from mine at 4000 dpi, but I have been quite happy with mine.

I've read a lot and seen a lot of photos shot with Ektar 100, but haven't tried it myself in 120, until now. I found a good deal on some 120 Ektar 100, so I bought it and loaded up my Rolleichord Vb. The photos were from last week up in Rocky Mountain National Park and from this morning during a morning snow storm. I home developed the roll in a Unicolor C41 kit.

Here are a few of the photos from the first roll. I REALLY need to start using this Rolleichord more often, I've only shot a few rolls of B&W out of it and this is my first color roll from it. The Rolleichord is no slouch.

From this morning










Last week in the park

May I ask how did you meter for this?
Pretty quickly and groggily - I'd only had a sip or two of hot coffee. I set the light on the ripples in the foreground as my middle grey. Didn't take any notes that morning but I believe it was in the 1/30 neighborhood at around f/8.

I finally had a roll of E6 taken with my LX, it's Agfa Precisa and I've taken some pics of the mist, of course they are very yellow...for these I used the M 85mm:





For this one the M35mm f2.8, during the long exposure (I think 2 minutes) a car passed in the road, this is the first time I get the light trays:

Great work. I especially like the shots with the aggressive cloud formations.

I see you guys are talking MF, I just received the test roll of Provia I've used for my new to me Mamiya 645E (cheapo camera, to be honest)...unfortunately something went wrong and out of 15 exposures I got only 5. If it's not a problem I post them all here:











These shots were taken on an alpine lake in the early morning, they are quite blue, I should have used a warming filter but I have none for the size of the Mamy 80mm f2.8.

Those first two are fantastic and really convey the cold.

Today's bright sunshine over a frozen pond deep in the woods gives a veiled look:
