    Out of curiosity I had FreeStyle throw in a few rolls of Adox Art 25 with my last order. This may be old news but it really looks like Efke R25 when it came out of the fixer - that familar gloss and curl.

    It has the same price as the Efke product, so why would FreeStyle stock the same film with two brand names?

    Then came a little suprise - stuck in the plastic cannister, identical to the 120 cannisters we could buy from J&C was a small sheet giving warranty and some basic developer/development times - along with a US address - Overland Park, Kansas. Now is this pure coincidence as that was the original home of J&C?

    By the way the negatives look really good - so when stocking up which should I buy - Adox or Efke?

    Whichever gives you the best value for your dollar.

    I purchase Efke 25, and Adox Ortho25 (when I can't afford Rollei Ortho25). Didn't get the chance to try the Adox Ortho25 while in Vegas earlier this month, but will try again later. I still think the Rollei is going to win out, in the end.
