Since I run Arch Linux, and my usual scanning software (Vuescan) no longer works - it crashes with a segfault - I decided to try XSane (open source) for scanning some of my recent negatives. It's excellent! (especially at extracting the full brightness range in high-contrast negatives).

(Kodak TMY400-2, Voigtländer Heliar 50mm f/3.5, Leica M3)

The Heliar remains probably the most singularly satisfying lens I have ever used. The contrast characteristic - especially when shot wide open as above - is just so right for me. And the wonderful Kodak TMY400-2 ("The new TMAX") certainly helps! I continue to adore monochrome film, with no intention whatsoever to stop using it almost daily.
