    a) discontinue it.
    b) reformulate it, so you need to start all over.
    c) change all the brand names so you don't know what is what.

    You know, I've never found it all that difficult to adjust when a manufacturer changes a film. When Kodak reformulated Tri-X and Plus-X a few years back, the changeover was no big deal. Development time for a given developer changed a little bit, but not enough so that if you used the old time it would have been bad. Then they reformulated TMY into TMY-2, and that changeover was just as easy. I did exactly what I was doing with the old TMY, and got better results.

    Very interesting. I have both TMY and TMY-2 in 35mm, and there is a subtle difference in sharpness and grain, but the difference is so small I really don't notice much difference in 6x8" or 9x12" prints. And processing is, for me, exactly the same with both.

    Pan F+ works beautifully in Rodinal 1+100 stand developed. You could also use 1+50. I have only used it for landscapes and initially struggled with the contrast and blown highlights. At higher dilutions Rodinal acts as a compensating developer. I think Barry Thornton recommended dilute 1+3 Perceptol which is also compensating.
