I backed into this setup. Bought a Foveon sensor camera. Realized that the crop lens that came with covered a full frame image circle fairly well. So in my mind that requires a compatible 35mm film camera be purchased…

SIGMA SA-7N - 30mm f/1.4 Art

Never said I was a reasonable man.

Film used was Iford HP5 and developed with Cinestill df96. I often shoot this film at 200 under the advice of Dennis from my local camera shop.

Test Drive - SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art 019

But this time I shot it at box speed (400). Did fine in bright light, but not so much otherwise. Dennis was right. Will be going back to 200 after this roll. Samples below.
