Just got my first hassy, a 501c(w/80mm), and it has truly surpased my expectations. I just picked up my first couple of rolls of B&W from my local pro lab and I knew Zeiss lenses were contrasty but these prints look almost infrared! The kodak tech pan 25 was the most obvious but the ilford pan F was right up there. Even the TX 400 was of much higher contrast than I am used to. Don't get me wrong, I think its pretty cool, but there are some times I might not want this. Is there no stopping this lens!? I figured it might be the lab itself and their processing methods. I just started going there and all I know is they use all Agfa equipment. The proofs I got were printed on Agfa Sensatis paper. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.
