    What stinkjet has recounted is exactly what I have heard. I'd add to it only that the reason why they couldn't continue supplying MGIII was that Ilford needed to switch the facility's production to graphic arts products. The MGIV1K that was subsequently supplied came from another facility (I believe the surviving Ilford Photo facility).

    Looking a the price this paper is quite cheap. It might be worth trying. Only 8x10 and 11x14 though.

    Zone VI Paper

    I know I had the first VC paper that Zone VI had made for them. It was really nice paper. Unfortunately I had NO clue what I was doing at that time with VC paper and unloaded the entire lot to Midwest Photo. That paper was extremely nice. Have no clue what the new paper is like but is probably worth trying as I would doubt that it is EXACTLY like MGIV-otherwise why would they rebrand it? Report back to us....
    Best, Peter
