Yes, exploring the PC lens on the Z6-Z7. Focusing is a lot easier.

In addition to having a somewhat "bland" lens and "bland" weather, we got a relatively empty city here, and it is indeed difficult to capture people "incidentally", you have to fetch them. This holds particularly true in the southern part of downtown Lille, where the former industries and workers' homes gave way to administrative offices and very few housings, after WWII. During weekends, it is no man's land, and confinement does not help. And yes, all shots ensured "vertical verticals" (handheld - one or two slight corrections in PP at most), maximizing boredom :)

I find the 35/2.8 PC rather easy to focus (wide open of course) on the Df.

How about exposure ? is it still necessary to set it manually before shifting ?

Yes, the 35PC is not so difficult to focus, but you see more clearly with focusscreen at 100% were the lens is sharpest.  Especially usefull when in shift.

As the Z6 is measuring the light through the lens, no extra exposure work here.

Thank you for the details about the area you shot.  The omission of excessive expression rather conjures the imagination.  :)

Warning to myself: Airy and John are joining forces to stimulate my GAS for the PC 35.   :o :o :o
