I don't think you will be sorry. Just don't overexpose drastically. HP5+ in 35 mm has an irremovable base density of about 0.2 which makes it look foggier than it is. That is dye, not silver. Grain should be less than Rodinal. The proportional dye image is a bit paradoxical. It spreads enough to produce less granularity in the print than you would expect from looking at the negative, but sharpness is very good. Contrast will be higher on grade 2 paper than on VC without filter.
