I only have good comments for the 35/2 AI ... but then again I was looking at corner sharpness and least distortion
Peter, I send it to a guy I found on a local forum. I mail him my negs (he used to develop too but his day job caught up with him unfortunately), he scans, removes dust and hair, then uploads into google drive. I get the link, transfer him the money and he sends my negs back to me.
Not really sure the specifics of what he does (seems rather knowledgeable on the forums that's why I went with him)....Show more →
as long as the full tonal range is in there, flat is ok. I did some additional searching and found out that I need to scan a strip of unexposed negative strip, and then lock the scanner's exposure on that value (=solid black defined). That seems to work better than my original method that used built-in film profiles. I did the processing of that film myself, which means they are all somewhat different. The 9000ED is very similar to my scanner, and shouldn't be the reason for the negs to be any better. It is all about the settings in the software.
I'll post a few of my recent scans later today - all heavily adjusted in curves, but I don't go as far as burning and dodging yet.
