    Nothing earth-shattering, exceptional, or even unexpected. Not even a comprehensive test or opinion, just a first impression!

    Jan,
    very nice photos. I particularly like the center one.
    I am currently testing Astia 100F vs. Kodak GX100 to determine which I like better, primarily for people pictures. As you imply on your webpage, the winner might be the one which scans better.
    Current materials make the slide to print process a compromised one. I think that scanned film to injet output might provide the right combination of "archival" image capture and vivid output with a better tonal range than Ilfochrome.
    Brian, click on the "Velvia 100F" line of Jan's post to bring up his webpage.
