    From the few of his shots I have seen, I have a feeling he goes for high
    contrast, smaller aperture (f8 or smaller), ASA50 and 400 film and 35mm and
    50mm equally than often said predominately 50mm.

    What do you think? What can you drive form his shots?

  3. 50mm is right.
    His early work is on Elmar 50 lenses.
    My feeling is he is probably at f5.6 a lot of the time.
    There was a time when 125th sec at 5.6 was the way you kept a camera set
    as it was fatser to set from that position.
    I still have mine set that way when I am out and about.
