    Found a review here it may be something that the OP is looking for perhaps...?
    I recently developped 6 rolls of Rollei Pan 25 (version 2) which is supposedly the same film as Efke 25. It is pretty fine grain but not as smooth as Agfa 25... I'm pretty happy with it except that as someone already mentionned quality control is pretty poor. In the 3 rolls I've already come across 4 emulsion defects that would have been a major problem if I had been printing in a wet darkroom, thankfully I can 'fix' it after scanning. So while a really nice film, make sure to take several shots just in case...

    Several places list this film as being in stock but does anyone know if it discontinued ?

    Try one hour stand developing with Rodinal ≈1:100 and Acros ISO 100, Efke 25, Rollei Pan 25, and Ilford PAN F+. All come out great. I like Efke and Rollei PAN but because of price I buy a lot of Acros 100. I haven't experimented much with Kodak TMAX. You can be pretty cavalier with Rodinal storage and it will last forever at full strength. You don't have to mix up and use liters of it. It is dirt cheap. For one hour stand developing I use 4 mL of Rodinal per a roll of 120 or 35mm. I put the 4 mL of Rodinal in whatever volume of distilled water is appropriate for what I'm developing. The beauty of it is you can develop Efke and Acros in the same tank at the same time. The dilution and time are the same for everything. I invert the tank very gently for 30 seconds at the beginning and then I just leave it alone for an hour. I use a water stop bath and then fix. Give it a try. Allegedly minimizing the agitation helps to reduce grain.

    I did not have good results with this technique and 400 ISO film. 100 ISO or slower is beautiful with Rodinal stand.
    That's interesting, I"ll have to give stand development a try. How does Acros 100 compare to TMAX 100 ?

    My best looking negatives are the ones made on Agfa 25 and Tech pan. A few years ago I had done some comparisons between techpan and Ilford 100 just by changing film backs of the same scene, there's just no comparison. The SWC can record an incredible amount of detail and outresolves the Delta film. How does Ilford Pan-F compare to Efke 25 (in terms of tonality grain and sharpness ) ?
