Hi Margus, CR-200 and the Lomography X-Pro 200 ASA slide film are made from Agfa Belgium AviPhot 200 Chrome film which is on a polyester base, I know this does not quite answer your question but for all intent and purposes the Aviphot 200 Chrome film looks and performs just like the original Agfa Leverkusen RSXII film. Purchasing this Agfa Aviphot film from a more reputable film packager makes a big difference lately, The Aviphot film only available in 35mm X 100' rolls from Wittner-Cinetec in Germany so far has proved to be nice film, proper color rendering, it looks just like my few 120 and 35mm RSXII film kept frozen that came from the Agfa Leverkusen factory.
Get your Agfa Aviphot 200 Chrome slide film from Wittner-Cinetec in Germany, It looks and performs just like RSXII but is on a polyester base, stay away from the Rollei/Maco CR-200 until people once again are obtaining rolls that do not have that awful yellow color cast to them. I Know, it is kind of an inconvenience to have to purchase a minimum of 100 feet of this slide film from Wittner-Cinetec but by the time you get 18 to 20 36 exposure rolls it is about $6.50 a roll, Fuji slide film is usually more than $10 per 36 exp roll.
For all intent and purposes the new film which is not really new at all, Agfa Belgium has made this material for many years seems to be RSXII coated on a different base, its color rendering and character are just too much like the original film from Leverkusen, in effect Both Agfa film factories made 200 ASA color slide film at the same time in years past, just different packaging, one kind to be sold to us 120 and 35mm users and the other for aviation camera use, The kind for aviation use is the only one left, this is not sold directly to the public unless you want to purchase a 1 meter wide by 2000 meter bulk roll, this bulk roll is what is purchased by Rollei/Maco and Wittner-Cinetec then cut down to 120 and 35mm sizes then sold to us.
Please don't take this as absolute truth, this info is just based on my research and experience and info and observations from other forum members, forum member AGX in Germany has provided a lot of great info, Agfa Belgium sometimes will answer questions as well.
