Home Processing 2

Had a bit of trouble getting the film onto the spool today, so sadly a few marks and scratches also managed to get some loose film stuck onto two of the frames. Whoops. Had to wash the film twice to get ride of the water spots

Much better results then the Fomapan though. Less grain and better contrast.

Again more barrel distortion from the Voigtlander Nokton F1.4. Is it time to go to to Zeiss or Leica?
