Based on comments on this board, I ordered a few rolls of Efke 25 from J&C and picked up a small bottle of Rodinal at my local shop. Burned three rolls over the weekend and really liked the results for a first time trying both the film and developer.
As much as I like to do it(took two classes a while back) traditional printing is a definite non-starter in my current home so I've invested in a decent digital printing setup - Imacon Flextight 343 and Epson 2200. This film scans fantastic! It's definitely the one I'll go to when slow speeds are possible. I'm still wanting to try some Foma 100 when J&C gets a new supply. In the meantime, I ordered 50 rolls of the Efke 25...
One thing - the Rodinal is great, no real grain at all with this film in 6*6 and sweet tonality. However, it may be a little too sharp for me. Are there any other developers that are reasonable easy to use, work well with the Efke and have a little lower accutance than Rodinal? I use XTol 1:3 a lot but could find any dilute times for Efke 25.
Here's some snaps from my first rolls. Shot with a Rollei SL66 and 80/f2.8 Planar.

I'd never have thought to try this film(or developer) if it wasn't for this group.
