    I visit APUG almost daily and I haven't seen anything about what--in Australia anyway--is quite a new product.
    Made in the "EU", rather expensive, perhaps from the Maco stable.

    Information? Comments?

    Below from my regular supplier/stockist:

    I guess most - if not all of them - are made by foma. The codes (111, 131, 331, etc) make it kind of suspicious anyway, but I have seen the foma logo on the boxes too. To be precise, it was "Produced by" with the foma logo :D Even the spectral sensitivity charts at rollei's pdfs seem to be taken from foma's pdfs...

    It's Foma at twice the price. The new labels must be very expensive :cool:

    Yeah this definitely looks like Foma. The characteristics of these "Rollei" papers pretty much mirror those of Foma.
