    By everything I've read on the forums, yes.

    I've bought this film under both labels, and it certainly seems the same.

    From my experience, yep, they're the same. Good film too.

    John at J&C used to to ship them interchangeably and said they were exactly the same film. I've shot and processed both and can't deny it.

    I've also shot them both, but find a slight edge over those in the green Efke boxes. That being said, After having shot the Rollei Ortho25 and loving it, will be trying the Adox Ortho25 next week in Vegas. There should definitely be a discernible difference there.

    Definitely the same film.
