    Well if you're printing 40x40 - I'd say you need a bigger negative, but yeah, you might need a film like this.

    Oh, I shoot 4x5 too now, but that is not always practical for some of the remote places I end up in and for the faster paced work I do. I like knowing I can go as big as I want with either medium or large format....

    Yeah, you're right - I love 4x5 but it has plenty of limitations. MF is much easier and in general more versatile. 40x40 would be 17.8x enlargement from 2.25" sq, roughly like a 16.8" x 25" print from 35mm. You'll need very fine grained film like this, even aside from any particular look from the response, IF of course the print is to be viewed from fairly close and you don't want the grain to be obvious.

    I don't know how many people print so large though. I certainly can accept liking the look of a particular film. I'm thinking some of you must shoot in brighter light too.

    .. think part of the selling point of this sale is not the $$ amount or the roll count, but the fact that it is all the same EM#. The film type adds to the value, but those who used to shoot for a living understand how important this element is. Maybe they drop the price if it doesn't sell..

    I think it helps with any film but it was critical with transparency on big commercial shoots. The 100 rolls of APX25 I bought in 2007 is all the same emulsion number so like you said, it does not get any better than that.....

    Even if it drops to $1,500.....must resist...don't have the room....now of it drops to a grand, I'll have to make the room, lol!

    That's also quite a lot of film and a big purchase. If someone were using it commercially it might make sense, but otherwise it requires finding a well heeled hobbyist willing to drop two large on stocking their freezer with a black and white film that's much more expensive (albeit with some unique qualities) than other quality film still being made. They might find that buyer.

    This is 8 years past expiry date, meaning it was purchased even earlier. What are the chances their "deep freeze" claims are as deep as their greed that's on display there? Way too much and there is no way to prove their storage wrong, if this turns out to be a bust when processed. $5 a roll might be OK.
