By the way...How many layers is the T-Max 3200? Will the range on the Illord
about the same - 800-25000?

The Delta 3200 is a classical B&W emulsion. Many of these B&W films  have
one emulsion layer and some have two layers. A four layer emulsion is quite
hefty. And shows the effort of Ilford to produce a high quality B&W film.

The sharpness of XP2 super must wait as I have not yet tested it.

I did compare the Elmarit and the Summicron. (both M line). The Elmarit
wins. The Summicron-M and R are in the same legue. The price of the new
APO-Summicron ASPH is very reasonable.
