I have been using Neopan 1600 in Xtol 1:3 for about four years now.
This is a lovely combination for me.  Relatively little grain most of
the time (don't overexpose this film for best results) very nice
gradation, pretty good sharpness have been my experience with this
combination.  I just can not get images as good from TMZ or Delta 3200
even when rated at 1600.

Obviously, this is not as good a combination as just about any 400 speed
film.  But when you are at F1 to F1.4 and hitting 1/8 or lower, then you
are going to use a twinkie flash or use a faster film.  I almost always
choose the faster film.
