i find TIW do B&W for $8, no scanning. if you have 36 roll, paying for scanning can easily pay off a nice scanner. $6.6 to scan at TIW @ 4BASE x 36 = $237 < you can buy a refurb Epson V600 for only $145
i find B&W processing hard to find in up town, my choice are limited to Pacific mall, Shoppers/Fuji and walmart, they only do C-41; blacks charge $7.99 for B&W which they outsource, so might as well bring it to the pro lab like TIW.
I don't worship lenses, nor do I see the 3 primes as a "trinity"
there is only one Holy Trinity and they certainly aren't lenses
