    I haven't gotten into my box of 4x5 iso 25 but I've shot lots of 6.5cm x 9cm in iso 25 as well as 5x7 in iso 100 and like others I've metered at box speeds. I develop in Rollo Pyro with a Jobo expert drum. I get great consistent results.

    I love Efke film.

    I've also found it fine at box speed-using PCAT semistand 1+200 for 35 mins.

    Perverse as it may seem I use EFKE PL25 at the same effective ISO as Tmax 100 - 50 ISO and get great results from both.

    Due to quirks in the ASA(BS) and DIN film speed testing methods the box ISO's err in different directions. The EFKE 25's film speed has been the same since its introduction, as ADOX KB14/PL14, 14 being 14DIN=25ASA, where as other film manufacturers doubled their box speeds late 60's.

    DIN 14 is ASA 20. DIN 17 is ASA 40.

    Fotokemika changed that to 25 and 50 when they started with DX-coded 135 cassettes.

    Here are three Efke boxes from the 80's til today.

    I've been using Efke -25 exclusively for the last couple of years and develop it using TFX2 and semi-stand development. I started using a hardening fixer
    after getting tired of scratches from handling after processing. I've got a bunch of good negatives with scratches from the negative carrier to prove that the stuff is delicate!

    I swear by FG-7 1:15 for this stuff, usually underexpose it just a bit, let the shadows go out and print dark.
    It's beautiful.
