Gave my 1965 LEICA M2 + 1988 German 35mm f1.4 Summilux an outing. Slow speeds have been repaired but i have not used it for a long while. I tried a length of my Old Kodak Tri-X found in fridge with which I am 'experimenting' using Crawley's FX-4 developer 1+1 for 12,5 Mins @ 20oc I did prints with my 'Gift' DURST M305 + 50mm f4 El-Nikkor and Jessops VC Glossy 7x5" paper in home-made D72 1+2 laced with 1% Benzotriazole
The Face seen on a Bus waiting at traffic lights -- I got off 2 frames. 1/250 @ f2.5 dull weather

Shopper: 1/125 @ f1.4 and I burnt in white area but not long enough

Passer-By: small alley off Brentwood High Street -- I did focus near BUT the far shops seem sharper. 125th @ f1.4

Nice ones!

Re. you last image, looking at the pavement, it seems you're not too far off with focus. It looks more like motion blur (due to subject motion)
