    I'm sure there are those who will dispute the Provia preference, especially the resolution fetishists (Velvia IS one of the highest-resolution films ever made), but I'll take more natural color any day. I've also been gravitating toward Kodak films lately - I'm not happy with the preponderance of green in Fuji emulsions. But then again I mostly shoot negative films, so I have the ability to tweak that far more than you can with a transparency film.

    I keep repeating myself here, but projected, Kodak films look better hands down, no doubt about it. It's a crying shame what has happened.

    Thanks everyone for the information and your opinions of film choices.

    I have some 30 glass slides waiting at my front door as we speak. Will look at getting some more too.

    Hatchetman, I want to address you use of Kodak films specifically here. For the most part, I have always used Kodak films in all my 35mm and 120 cameras. Recently, given the problems with Kodak and reading about some shortages, I am almost afraid to fall in love with Ektachrome just to have the rug pulled from under my feet.....silly thinking?? (I think I have around 3 rolls of Ektachrome in the fridge, I need to get the camera out!).

    Not silly at all, all Ektachrome was already discontinued earlier this year. Kodak is out of the E6 market. Your choices are Fuji and the Rollei 200 film. Plus, of course, remaining stock of Ektachrome.

    I can't say I obsess about MTF curves Scott but I know both Velvia 100 have the same granularity of PMS 8, all I can say as one who shoots very little landscape that in both 135 and 120 that when I project Provia in either format on my 50"X 50" white screen I'm very happy indeed with the sharpness and lack of granularity of the results, although I deeply regret the demise of Kodak reversal films there will soon be very little other choice
