Fuji Sensia 200 (really crappy slide, it's fresh , but looks print film)
I love Sensia 100 pretty much this slide made me a bit unhappy..

Hi-res images are here

I think 85mm is trully awesome lens like Biotar 75mm or Pancolar 80mm

Epson V500

Konica Hexanon 35mm f2.8 EE

Yeah, I was going to order some 200 and 400 Sensia, but decided to
stick with 100. Still, some of these are really great images! Love the
snake! I'll be looking for the 35 and 85 lenses.

Does the meter work in the FC-1?

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, works perfectly I will use I think as a light meter for my Bessa folders.
Currently I found a 85mm on sale in USA take a look in MFL Club I did link there amazing performer I think 35mm very good also.

Sensia 200 is a huge disappointment perhaps just a defected batch I bought cheaply on Ebay might be worst to try if you can find locally.

Attila,

Are both series taken with the same film?.
The 85mm gives much better contrast and color, maybe the 35mm is getting an overexporure measuring from the meter.
Does the camera measure the light through the lens?

Nice compositions, the first series with the 35mm seem flatter than the ones with the 85mm. The 85mm series is awesome!. Love the colouring!.

Regards,

Jes.

Yes , same times , same light conditions and same roll of film. I think FC-1 has ttl metering. 85mm and 35mm same series of lens EE with silver bottom I think they are single coated. 57mm f1.2 AR I think multi -coated.
I am not sure about coating I just know AR last serie, EE one step before.

I think Jes is on to something.
You must expose 1/3rd down with 28-35mm lens on slides in high contrast scenes yes, shadow detail will be lost.
2/3 for 21 and wider lenses.

sensia is fine for evening and neutral light. Not well suited for high intensity sun and deep shadows.

The 85 looks great I think the 35 is average or below. Maybe some samples with the E1 comparing Flek 35 and Zuiko 2/35 to see were it falls in place.

Thank you for tips Andy ! I will try to not forget next time. I will test them with digital camera too I hope 35mm is same good than other lenses. Let we see.

I hear the 2/35 Hexanon is a very good performer, but you hardly ever
see it for sale. Maybe it's too good! Laughing

Well, that 85 didn't last long at $125, shee-yott.

Yes, those 85 shots are very very nice!
