By the way, in looking at differences between B&W and color, the one
thing that seems clear is that our human visual acuity -- the
resolution we can see -- is significantly higher in B&W.  So, it's
possible the focus errors you never noticed in color will be visible
in B&W.  I think this also may explain why so many think a good B&W
looks sharper than color -- visually it is.  I'm taking advantage of
this now with the B&W dyes, and particularly the metallic papers, to
make B&W images that have an apparent sharpness that is just beyond
our usual experience.
