There's alot of talk about matt Ilford MGIV here. I'm assuming it tones the same as the glossy MGIV I've been using for years? There's nothing special about the matt that I'm missing?
Only that it doesn't look as sharp and has the appearance of lower dmax due to its surface.
The toning really brings it alive, and all of a sudden you get something that isn't possible with the glossy version.
