You see, one of the defects is uneven coating speed. This causes a sinusoidal coating pattern giving products high and low density in a given pattern. You would see it very badly in LF, but hardly at all in 35mm. Another unremarked problem is particles of dirt and dust in the coated film. So, they do well as IMHO most here ignore or are not aware of these "tiny" problems.

I'll probably find out. Last year I bought a grafmatic holder off LFPF and the seller threw in a mostly full box of 4x5 Efke 100. I plopped it in the freezer but haven't tried any of it. I recently bought a 50 sheet box of 4x5 Efke IR820 too when this news hit, so I'll see about that. It's probably staying frozen until spring. There's not a lot of good IR shooting in the winter in my area with vegetation dead and many days gloomy.
