Interesting comparison and thanks for that. The Ektar somehow makes the eyes jump out at you and the deeper blues of the iris makes the whites of the eyes stand out more. That combined with a tanned glow effect makes me see why wedding photographers might prefer Ektar. It gives a kind of saturated technicolor look that most younger brides and grooms would want.

Someone marrying in middle age might have a different view. Despite the Fuji shot looking less sharp and duller, I prefer it.

Overall Fuji would be still be my choice for street photography, animals and landscapes
