Sounds like they know how good Astia was, at least, so maybe there's hope. I was astounded when I started shooting it. I was expecting something with more pastel saturation but what I got was rich and vibrant but without the overblown look of higher saturation films and without so much contrast as Provia. I moved on to E100G when Astia went away, and it was indeed good (still have several rolls in the freezer and just sent one to Dwayne's with some other E6) but of the two I prefer Astia.
