On top, again ? Kodak have always been the back runner here in Europe. Ok their films are on a level pegging with others, and I use TMX100 in all formats, but their papers certainly aren't, and never have been.

I do like Agfa APX100 (ISO 100) when available but get almost identical results from Kodak's 50 ISO film Tmax 100 - see all John Sextons essays on T-max films !

If the worst were to happen some of the former Eastern Block cointries produce far nicer and more versatile papers than Kodak IMHO
