    A recent "trip of a lifetime" to old family places in Holland, Germany and Ireland was made more memorable but less pleasant by the fact that 20 rolls of 120mm Efke 50 came back with me badly fogged from the edges. 5 rolls of old "grey market" HP5 were fine. Same cameras, same storage (poor), same travel arrangements. My only thought is that the paper wrap on the Efke is substandard.

    Anybody else ever have this problem?

    Invariably. I've got quite a few rolls of Efke R50 and R100 in my photo jacket. Want 'em?
