Sorry to break the colour photos but a new lens arrived yesterday (earlier than expected) so I had to try it (despite the rain!). The less popular Mamiya 7 210mm f8 lens!

Here is one of the bikes amongst the washing as a model for me.

This lens is interesting. You can't focus it via the VF/RF as it is not RF coupled. I couldn't compose it as I purposely bought it cheaper without the external VF. A bit like using the Hasselblad SWC which I have so I was up to the challenge! For me it is easier in theory to compose as I point the RF patch at the centre of the object. As it happens this is not the true centre of the photo! (All the photos cropped above where I aimed so good to know).

I loaded 35mm film again to test and I quite like the pano look.

Mamiya 7 + Mamiya 210mm f8 N @f8, 1/60 + C41 35mm very expired / non-refrigerated BW400CN film 400@200

AND... I opened a new bottle of Rodinal/Adonal to use! It's been a while for me and Rodinal so I thought it was time.

Rodinal 1:100, 21 degrees, 50mins, 1 inversion (semi-stand), Epson v800 scan
