Thanks Thomas, I'm left with some TMZ rolls in the fridge which I'm going to shoot this winter as they don't hold as long as slow film. After that my D3200 stock will be filled up drastically. I got a tip to overdevelop (push?)delta3200 one stop further to have it more up on contrast. e.g. shoot EI1600, develop as EI3200.
I'm going to test some TMX400 up to EI1600 too. It's in the family. Hopefully TMX400 stays alive after positive testing.
I had to use TMZ for a special project where I was shooting in extremely low light conditions. Personally, the only reason why I chose TMZ was the excellent reciprocity which allowed me to shoot what I wouldn't have been able to with other films. Otherwise, I would have used D3200 for its much more pleasant grain structure and tonal range.

And may I add that Tri-X @ 1250 in Diafine looks pretty darn good, especially once you run a few rolls through it and it ripens a little.
Also Tmax TMY-2 400 looks really good at 1250-1600 in Diafine. TMY-2 has that straight toe, which may give you a little more shadow detail, while the 2-bath action will keep the linear shoulder from frying the highlights. Or at least that is my theory.
