First Roll w/Mz-5n and FA 28-70mm f/4

I finally finished my first roll with the Mz-5n and FA 28-70mm f/4. I'd say 30% were good. The Kodak UMax 400 colors were looking different compared to my Super Program(?). I may try Fuji 400 again. I posted some below, I pped color as the greens were way too rich.

Tomorrow I load a roll of Fuji Reala 100 (weather pending)

Scanning color negative is a pain.
It's almost impossible to get the color right

Nice photos.

I use that combination of camera and lens. What a nice combination. I hardly ever swap the lens out. It is my kind of go-to film body and lens for 28-70mm. When I do swap out it is to go to my F 50mm f/1.7. That's an outstanding duo too.

You'll like the Reala I think.

Nothing wrong with it. I've just bought the MZ-5n and this was it's trial run.

I'm finding that out. However, not only do different films give different results, bodies could do the same.

Thanks Seaain, 19 shots into the Reala 100 today with the kids/scenery in a park. I'll finish it off tomorrow at a different location. 100 ISO sure brings the shutter speed down

How would you explain different colors with same film + lens but different body?

I've been a little disappointed with the 28-70/4 on digital but it just feels & looks right on the little MZ/ZX film bodies. Especially with the Fg AA grip.

I think these scans look pretty good from a detail/contrast point of view though the colors look a little brown to me.

I wasn't making a statement, it was more of a question. Would the same lens and film on different bodies yield different colors? Doesn't really matter, I was just thinking out loud.

If the film came from a different batch, maybe (or the lens was being affected by ghosting/flare).

But objectively, the body is a light-tight box that barring different exposure, shouldn't affect the outcome of the colour at all. That's up to the characteristics of the lens and the emulsion itself.

Great images ..Love the third and the 4th is simply precious!...

I would have to agree that the body does not dictate what the images look like. It is all lens and film...The only folks who seen to insist that the bodies make a ''huge'' difference are the leica people..:ugh:

Thanks for the info and the reasoning behind it Javier and CSoars, makes sense
