I probably referred to it as the "pick of the litter", or words to that effect, years and years ago working solely in 35mm (the hardest format to get right with Velvia). The results printed to Ilfochrome, frankly, looked bloody awful.. RVP 50 is quite easy to print in the hybridised (A->D) process, no problems there and it really does come up beautifully, but like everything else, the end result depends on how well you have exposed the scene. The low-contrast scenes you speak of are the target use of RVP 50. It's not unheard of for any Velvia to be used in weddings and commercial jobbing, though I cringe at the thought of a bride with rosy cheeks coming up ... bolder than roses, so to speak.
