I like the results in terms of tonality.
I like the price.
I do not like the problem with the micro-scratches allover the back-side of the film (not the emulsion-side); also not the weird sound while transporting or respooling the film. I suspected, that the problem with the scratches must be produced in the camera: To control that I cleared a piece of film out of the container in fixing bath; a pattern of microscratches on the base showed up, lenghtwise, 2mm long and allover...
I am looking forward that Foma can fix this problem; I like their B&W-Papers a lot and the fact, that there is another company beside ilfujak.
