    I agree that AGFA MCP is the best RC paper on the market today. But Ilford MG IV is very close to it. IMO it is essential to use an infrared RC dryer to get the most out of these papers. I get a DMax of 2,2 logD from both MCP and MG IV, but the whites are slightly more pleasing on MCP. Of course, Dmax and general appearence depend on the developer used. My standard one is Amaloco AM 6006.

    Try Arista from Freestyle Camera; it's repackaged Ilford at a lower price. The pearl surface is pleasant; it's not real FB, but it's not bad, and should suit you.

    If you like glossy RC paper, check out seagull. I got a box a while back and it was a great paper.

    Yeah, it's definitely Agfa and Amaloco for me
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    For proofing go with the Arista or Adorama if they still offer it. If you want to produce finished prints with neutral to a colder tone, Kodak Polymax RC in Agfa Neutol Plus and selenium 1-9 for 2 minutes. If the Agfa RC is close to the fiber version I would highly recommend it for final prints also.

    If your final prints are on Berger warm tone fibre paper I would suggest you try Ilford Warmtone RC.

    Kodak's RC paper is pretty good. For me it is available and cheap. I had some Agfa stuff that was very aged and once burned twice shy. Around here off the shelf Forte and Agfa and Ilford and Kodak. I buy Oriental FB when I am in LA but AFAIK there ain't no Orential paper here in the Metromess.
