I've been following all this chatter with considerable interest. I've got a fair amt of Efke 25 film in
6x9 format that I've got to start developing tonite. I know of absolutely no other film currently on the market which combines its potentially extreme acuity with such a long exposure scale. It's a wonder film up in the mtns where extreme contrast is common. Pan F is excellent but not suitable for
the same kind of scenes at all. And in large format we have more choice because grain etc is seldom
a worry. If these rumors actually transpire, I certainly hope someone will keep the formula alive, preferably under tighter quality control per dust etc.
