I've always been more of an Astia person myself...but these look nice. I agree, you probably could have gotten an extra 1/2 stop or so safely.

Thanks Dave. I have 5 rolls of Astia in my freezer. I'm not sure what to shoot with them as I have never used this film before. I know that it is good for portraits, but what else would you recommend that I use this film on?

It is nice for portraits in natural light.  I actually like it as a landscape film because it has about 1 stop more dynamic range than Velvia....and the grain is a bit finer.  It has been my goto film in 35mm and my Bessa R2a on many trips to Arizona.  I bulked up and have nearly 400 rolls of 35mm and nearly 300 sheets in 4x5.  I ran a test a couple of years ago and from a drum scan, it was grainless at 32x40....and sometimes 40x50.
