Here are the initial scans from my National Holiday trip. I went to Shanghai, Hangzhou, Linping and Ningbo for a couple of weeks. I took only the Leica and 35mm Summaron. I shot Ektar 100 for color. I love that stuff. I shot Tri-x and Neopan 400 for B&W.

Sorry for the dust on the pictures. Looks like I need to clean the ol scanner.
