To put my nose in one last time:
Why worry about pushing other stocks I assume you mean 400 speed stocks....?
When you've got Tmax p3200 which can be shot at a true 1600
Fuji 1600 again 1600 and or...
Delta 3200 at 1200.

I hate pushing developers they are just lousy for good tonality and nice
sharp even not to grainy grain.

I say use the 400 films at 400 they are as sharp as heck these days in Xtol
1:3 looking like high rez films at least looking like 100 speed films grain
and sharpness wise.
