It's in a middle ground between diluted solvent developers and high acutance developers. Rodinal is a fine developer with a distictive look and good acutance, but not the razor people assume it to be. Sorry. Then again, serves me right for getting involved in any kind of Rodinal discussion. Won't do that again.
