Bronica PG 100mm lens for GS-1 – sample pictures

These pictures were all taken with my Bronica PG 100mm Zenzanon f3.5 lens on a Bronica GS-1. (For more about other Bronica equipment, see equipment review.)

The 100 mm lens f3.5 has half-stop increments down to f22, and uses a 72 mm filter. It focuses to 0.75 metres. There is a rubber lens hood for it which conveniently folds flat, or use the heavier bellows hood. The lens works well with the 2x extender and with close-up lenses.

The above pictures were all taken with a Bronica PG 100mm lens. The film was scanned with an Epson V700 Photo at 48-bit colour depth using SilverFast SE software. The pictures were then tidied for the web using Photoshop CS3, reducing the image to 24-bit colours.
