This is what happens when you develop PanF+ at two stops under (EI12) and then push it 2 stops in development...
Cool maybe, but not practical. If you shoot PanF+ shoot it at box speed, if you want a little shine, push it 1 or 2 minutes extra in development in Rodinal That's my recommendation. It's certianly a more expensive film than HP5+ so I would buy it from the big stores instead of local if possible as the price can be wildly more than HP5+ in some places. I would shoot a mixture of both films just so you have some at your normal comfortability.
Just my thoughts
EDIT: Just FYI at 2 stops under (EI 12) the negs are VERY thin, and I scanned this image no printing, so I don't know if that would affect things for you, but sounds like you print optically and so I would recommend even more that you shoot at box for this film.
EDIT 2: Ok the coffee must not have kicked in when I said any of that... it's all backward, if I remember correctly I actually shot that at ... EI 200 and then pushed it 2.5 stops... (15 minutes in Rodinal) I don't know where my brain's at... sorry if I've utterly confused you... please ignore me...
