I have used the Lodima G2 first run paper last night (single weight). Contact printed my 8x10 negatives (HP5+ in HC-110h, tray). Prints developed in PF 130, stop, Kodak plain hypo, short selenium tone (KRST).
Compared to RC VC paper, Lodima is definitely straighter with respect to contrast, and gives more detail in the highlights. Obviously, I wish my negatives had been denser, because this paper seems to like extracting all the details it can. I might have needed G3 for some photos, but the prints I made match overall my RC proofs.
Not being an expert printer I can't comment on the total power of the paper, but it's a well-manufactured product that is worth discovering.
