That's just what I'm getting now with TMY2 batch 0167, although I haven't hit it hard enough to see what the shoulder looks like. It sounds like Fuji's curve has changed some over the past few years with the introduction of a sag before the big rise.

I see little benefit and a substantial cost to having a higher slope in the highlights. If one prints so that shadows and midtones have normal contrast, then the highlights block up more. What good is that?
