I would like to thank Simon for those words of encouragement. Although I've been historically using Kodak films for B&W photography, I think going forward will commit to using Ilford film since they are clearly commited to the B&W process. I definitely love their XP2 Super. I presume Delta would be a suitable replacement for T-Max?
Thanks again for your thoughts.
Ther are some highly opinionated people who would say that Delta is superior to T-Max
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
It's a shame you can't get Delta in sheet sizes any more, though you can get TMAX 100 and 400. On the other hand, Delta 3200 is available in 120 but not TMZ, so it depends what you shoot really.
