Exactly. Even from my 35mm film in my F5, my 8x10 wedding album prints have virtually zero grain. I've even done 16x20 prints from them without any comments as to grain.

That's interesting Dave. When did you shoot 35mm for weddings? The reason I ask is back when I was doing weddings in the late 70s and early 80s everyone was using 120 and Honeywell potato masher flashes. I was the only one in my area who added 35mm and fast film (Fujicolor 400) for my second shooter to do some available light stuff. The main camera was VPS of course. Second shooter and available light with small cameras was pretty revolutionary stuff at the time

My lab hated me and kept trying to convince me to stick to 120 but I liked the results I got. More importantly the clients bought the prints

I actually regret doggedly sticking to 120 film until I went digital. I'd have been much better using 35mm and loosening up a bit!

I think we all could loosen up a bit.  Worrying about noise at 6400 or 25000 iso has just gotten ridiculous.
