These developers are similar to many in common use. Amidst all this, it is remarkable how well D-76 does in comparison to the AH formulae, especially with Tri-X. (But this was a different Tri-X than we have now.) It is generally better than any of them. AH-3 is quite similar to D-25, and it does a quite marvelous job with Panatomic-X, according to the post. It might be worth another look with fine grain films.
