    If you want the colors to pick you up and kick you in the balls, use Velvia 50.

    Kodachrome is also one of the more beautiful options.

    No one has mentioned E100VS. Is that not a good choice? I've just begun using it since Kodachrome is going away and really like it, but I did recently shoot some flowers in bright sunlight that were over saturated to the point that detail seemed to be lost. It seems to be a pretty high contrast film.

    If you could find some still fresh (because discontinued), and if you avoid Fuji labs (Kodak are OK), I would strongly suggest you to try the Konica VX-200 or the Konica Centuria 400 print films. For slides, the Velvia.
    B&W is silver.

    Portra 160VC or NC are probably what I would use. Possibly Fuji Reala as well.

    For a transparency film, I'd likely use Astia, EPP, E100G, or given my particular refrigerator, I might use my stash of discontinued EPN or E100SW.

    Thanks everyone for your advice. Since there were several suggestions without on film a clear cut choice, I'm going to get a couple rolls of Velvia, Provia, Koadchrome, and Portra and see what I prefer. Thanks again....

    E100VS would be a good choice too.

    Exactly. It's about what you prefer!
