    Has anyone made comparisons of Bergger CB and NB papers with other more standard papers such as ILFORD Multigrade WT or Kentmere Fineprint? I ask as these Bergger papers seem to cost double the price of many other fibre base papers, and I'd be interested to get an idea of what they offer that other papers do not.

    As these papers now appear to be made by Harman, should one assume Harman is coating & manufacturing Bergger owned formulas?

    An APUG member on that thread gives the impression Bergger CB is not dissimilar to ILFORD WT, but more expensive. In another thread 'Aurelien' shows some examples of prints made on Bergger NB but doesn't make any comparisons.
