I asked Joe Cornish in person a couple of months ago if he does the same. He said he rates his generally at 40, and 30 for wide angle exposures.
It is certainly difficult to find the resources for enlarging 4x5 colour transparencies these days. Even Joe uses dgtl processing before cibachrome printing.
We don't see a lot of colour examples shown on apug all that often, I'll put a couple of images from 4x5 velvia in my gallery if you're interested.
OK, the're uploaded now, if you'd like to see a few examples go here: http://www.apug.org/gallery/showgall...r=1811&cat=500
