I haven't made a real comparison between the two as yet. I shot mainly 100 when I was in New Zealand last October, but I have been back to the 50 since then. I know Baxter has shot a bit of it, and for the subtle colors found in the UK, he doesn't seem real fond of it. He has done much more extensive testing than I have. My initial take is that the film is a bit cooler than the old 50, and while it is sharper, it doesn't seem to catch the more subtle warm colors like the old 50.
Sadly, because of the weather, I haven't taken more than a couple of images since January. I went out late yesterday to shoot some 6x12 Velvia 100, but the rain clouds came out and it got grey - actually, typical for this time of year, but after 43 days of solid rain, frustrating.
