This is the information I got from Fuji regarding the question of 
Superia vs. Professional films ("the truth according to Agent 3118"):

> "Dear Mr. Juan Gea-Banacloche:

Thank you for contacting Fujifilm, USA. Please allow us to assist you.

Our Press and Superia films are the same and uses the same emulsions. 
Press film is marketed to professional photographers and is packaged 
only in 20 roll propacks. Superia film is marketed to consumers and is 
packaged in single, double, and 4-roll packages.

Thank you for your interest in Fujifilm products.
