Efke 100 is a great looking traditional film. I think of it as a smoother Tri-X-ish film. It's not quite like Plus-X, but if you're looking for an alternative traditional medium speed B&W film in 5x7", FP4+ and Efke 100 are the most likely candidates. If you develop in trays, the emulsion is more fragile than Kodak or Ilford, so handle carefully.
