It seems that Tim and I agree on this point. If you are still trying to decide what you prefer in terms of contrast, go to a library or bookstore and look in a few photo books, prefereably not only by different photographers, but by diffrente types of photographers, and different eras of photography (1900's to present, for example). That way you can see a lot of differences in tonality, contrast, print tone, and how they all work with the images at hand.
