I may just not have found the right developer but I find Acros not that impressive, besides the 2 minute reciprocity failure rate, I'm not that impressed, it just seems fuzzy to me, "fine" maybe but such that all the edge just look blurred and not sharp. I'm thinking I just have the wrong developer (have tried Ilfsol 3 and DD-X which the latter should have worked but apparently not). I just pushed PanF to EI 100 in Rodinal and got much better results (price aside).

Maybe I'll try the edu stuff next for the price.

Just buy a bunch and try them all, you'll drive yourself nuts trying to figure it out, If you don't care about quality and just want the ability to shoot, get the EDU mentioned above.
