That 50 Nikkor is a great lens and I'm sure it married to the BEOON will make a great copying rig.

Portra is wonderful, no actually it's "BLOODY WONDERFUL !". All three speeds are excellent ( 160, 400 & 800 ISO ) though I find 400 the most versatile of the three. Portra for colour, Tri-X for B&W ... 'sorted' as they say, though I am looking forward to shooting the Cinestill when I get it.
One should take the "PLANK" out of one's own eye before trying to take a "splinter" out of someone else's
