    I was referencing Cibachrome. That's part of the reason I am shooting C41 instead as I've started dabbling with RA4 but haven't done all that much, and mostly just experimental printing without any...

    Bernice, your first paragraph is practically a quote of what I said in the quoted post, and your last statements have nothing to do with anything I've said.

    Why should that matter to me, you, the viewer, or anyone? With the understanding that very few, if anyone is doing LF film commercial reproduction work and this is not a factor in the discussion.

    Nope, just "Velvia" color. That's all that needs to be said, and we all get it that you don't like it (which is totally fine).

    Color temperature doesn't matter unless you are doing work that requires it to.

    The natural world doesn't need accurate color temperature - the film gives you exactly what color was there based on...

    Thanks Eric! This is an oddball lens, found on this forum. I don't think I've seen another one like it. Great portrait lens and small compared to the big f/2.8 lenses.
