That's putting it mildly. I was always puzzled why a firm that produced the excellent K25 and K64 would wish to sully the name by marketing the 200 ASA version. Specifically, I found it too grainy, less specifically I found it lacking in punch and never liked the colour rendition. Perhaps the advantages of "proper" Kodachrome still applied, though, in terms of archival qualities. Personally, I much prefer(red) the Fuji 200 films and Kodak 200 E6's.
