It's seems to be the DM chain in Germany that has recently been selling fresh (05.2014) Ektar for €2.15. Rumors are they want to get rid of their stock.
I haven't gone to the photo store yet, but do you think there is something wrong with the film, as to have two different stores selling it for the same price?

Not very good for portrait because it's hard to get good skin tone with Ektar. I found it's very sensitive to the color of the light so in shade and in the open need different white balance. However I like it because it's very fine grain.
And with studio lighting?

Kind regards,
