    I grabbed a fist full of Konica 160 in 220 about 8 or 9 months ago. I've run about four to six rolls through my 124G and I can tell you that the results have been less than encouraging....

    Compared to the Fuji NPH 400, the images are more muted and a little less sharp.

    Has anyone else experienced this? With the cost of developing 120, I'm a little miffed...or am I spoiled by Fuji? I may have been mistaken, but I thought that Konica was an okay brand...?

    Konica 160PS is a portrait film with contrast and saturation on the lower side, if that's what you meant by "muted." I didn't use it myself, but I used to use Kodak VPS, Fujifilm NPS and then Pro 160... I'm very happy with Pro 160/400/800 series.
