    I did a quick search but didn't find it right off; does anyone use Rollei Pan 25 and develop it in PMK Pyro developer? I have used Pyrocat HD with success and would like to try PMK, is it a good choice? I like Rodinal too for the slow films but I would like to simplify and use one developer for all films from roll to sheets. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Not PMK but AM50, a non-staining pyrocatechin developer (1+29) from Amaloco Photochemicals, the Netherlands. Due to the fact the Rollei PAN 25 is a modified OrWo NP15 emulsion these type of developers will do fine. A Beutler type like Neofin Blau/Blue will be also a perfect match.

    Here an example (35mm) with the M7+Summicron 2,0/50mm:
