your results seem very similar to mine, but without the edge markings as i bought a 100 foot roll. nice job.

when i bought my 100 foot roll, no VAT. I paid about $67 dollars which included shipping so all in all not bad. but with a few 100 foot rolls of provia 100f showing up on amazon for $100 i would rather pay the $30 more or about $1.50 more per roll for the better quality (better contrast and much less grain). But thats me, YMMV.

all in all though, its nice to have more options in the ever shrinking E-6 world.
