Ah I see, you just don't like Kodak :-)  Here is a Contax T3 image using

I know the web is not the best medium to judge images (and it has a smidgen
too much magenta caused by my scanner, the actual prints look fine), but I
have a 12x8 that I printed on an Epson 1290 just to see what an enlargement
would look like and it is great.  I certainly cannot see any grain that woud
be considered worse than any ISO 100 emulsion, let a lone an ISO 200 like
this film is rated at.

I agree with you on the constant film updates from Kodak.  I like the HDR, I
also like NPH, Portra and Supra, so I guess I am easy to please!
