Fuji Provia 100F

I thought I would gather some photos made using a film I will spend an awful lot more time with. For some time, my favourite positive film was Fuji Astia 100 - but the economics of film being what it is - it was recently discontinued by Fuji and I shot probably my last roll of 120 a few weeks ago and have exactly 8 rolls of 135 left. Fuji Provia it will have to be (by the way look out for another blog entry with some Astia photos coming soon)  but that is not much of a hardship as I like the results. My Leica bodies and Noctilux seem to give sublime results with this film. I have also show it a lot of with my Mamiya and Hasselblad medium format kit along with my Nikon and Canon bodies. All good I say. What do you think?
