    Ilford Pan F+ and Delta 100 for portraiture and landscape is quite my taste.
    I'm not really crazy about T-Max except for the TMZ 3200.

    Pan F+ @ iso 12 developed in Rodinal 1:100 for 6 minutes makes nice negs.

    I like Tri-X for its tonality, long density scale, strong sense of line, and even traditional grain pattern. It's a flexible film available in most of the formats I shoot. I process it in PMK for enlargement, ABC pyro for contact prints, and Acufine when I need the extra speed.

    The others you mention are all very capable films. Try them all, pick the one that you have the strongest affinity for, and use it exclusively for a year or so to see what it can and can't do.

    Delta 100 (120) developed in Pryocat-HD for highlight-control, fine detail and grainless rendition. APX100 (35mm) in Barry-Thornton's Metol 2-Bath for foolproof 35mm photography with in-camera metering. APX100 and FP4+ are to close together for my taste to use them both side by side. I do not use Tri-X.

    I am glad to hear that APX 100 and FP4 are close together since I can't buy APX 100 in 4x5 anymore. I have just bought 100 sheets of FP4 so will see how it works for me.

    Tri-X 90%, HP5+ and FP4. about 10%.

    I've also got a box of Delta 100 that I'm going to experiement with.
    Cheers!

    The look may be more different than my above comment implied. Sharpness, grain and speed are not to far apart, the rest is a matter of taste and specific application IMHO.

    I think of FP4 as having a more neutral tonality than APX 100. Efke PL100 has more of a tonal affinity with APX to my eye.

    Pan F @ ISO 32 in Rodinol 4 3/4 mins 1:25 is my fave for 35mm landscapes.

    Medium format Tri-X in Rodinol, lovely skin tones.

    Just starting to play with Delta 100 for 5"x4" in Rodinol. I have just developed some studio shots of some Cala lilies which look promising.

    I like Efke 50 in roll film too.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
