Thanks Thomas. I have used DR5 a number of times, but never with T-Max 100. I really haven't shot that much of it but was thinking it didn't have a real clear base. I did process a roll of T-Max 400 a couple of nights ago in XTOL and thought its base was rather opaque. I figured T-Max 100 would be similar.
I think you might have a processing problem. TMY-2 comes out clear as glass for me too, and I use Xtol also. Perhaps your fixer is nearing exhaustion? Anyway, don't mean to derail the thread... Carry on!
