I have used both T-MAX 100 and Fuji Acros and my work flow gives a slight advantage in grain to the latter. You might have to make a rather large print to see the difference, but at least based on my experience Acros does have finer grain than T-MAX 100.

Sharpness is a subjective evaluation of image clarity and depends on resolution (detail) and acutance. Resolution is not affected much by developer, but acutance is affected by both developer, dilution and type of agitation.
This question is in the same category as "boxers or briefs" or "Chevy's or Fords" because it is a choice and the answer is always subjective.
My choice is T-Max 400 for 35mm, and whatever is inexpensive for 4x5.
Thank you for that correction. My bad.

Lesseeeee, grain the same as Plus-X, sharpness (thanks, Sandy!) the same as TMX, high speed.
