    I bought a pack of 25 sheets from MAS and contact printed some 8x10 negatives recently (pics here: http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=60254&catid=member&imageuser=6132, http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=60253&catid=member&imageuser=6132, and http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=60252&catid=member&imageuser=6132)

    However, after examination, I find that some negatives would have benefitted from a harder contrast grade. This was my first experiment at 8x10 exposure and development.

    I have half the pack left, about 10 sheets (can confirm that to interested parties), and would like to trade an equivalent amount for G3.

    Bonjour Michel: I know that the answer will not be satisfactory, but sign up for the new Grade 3 which will arrive in the fall. In the interim, for new photographs, you can use your existing Grade 2 by modifying the development of your film so that the contrast range will better fit the ES of the paper. As you might know, the supply of the Grade 3 Lodima-in 8x10-is exhausted. Best of luck in finding what you need. I hope you will indeed find someone who is willing to exchange a few sheets of their Grade 3.

    Yeah, I know about the next run, but I'm taking a chance that someone has a few sheets they haven't used yet...

    I have some from the trial run I can give you. It's equivalent to Azo Grade 3. It's labelled Grade 2 but it has a lot more contrast than that and really beautiful print color. PM me.
