I find an 81B sometimes helps keep the shadows from looking too blue (which may be a strictly accurate rendition---shadows *are* blue---but doesn't look natural in a photo), but on the whole I'd agree. On the other hand, a warming filter with CR200 can really make the yellows go wild.

Interesting idea that the yellow could be an artifact of a specific batch. It's supposed to be the same emulsion as RSX II 200, which as far as I know didn't have a reputation for being an excessively yellow-skewed film; certainly the limited amount of RSX II 50 I've shot has been much more neutral than the Rollei film (though still warmer than Provia 100F).
