Considering that Kodak paper can only be bought in UK as rolls and not cut sheets that is a big incentive to buy Fuji. I didn't like Fuji at first but it has it's good points as I now find. However the base on which Fuji is coated is quite a bit thinner than Kodak so it will form kinks easier, I could be persuaded back to Kodak should they see fit to sell it in cut sizes. For one thing, I find the blacks on Kodak paper are a lot better and purer than Fuji
