To me E100g and E100gx produce images which just seem 'right' to my eyes (more natural, perhaps), and I prefer their rendition to fuji transparency film, including Astia. I also find it scans better. It does matter who processes the film. One place I used for a while consistently produced very 'cool' transparencies, the company I currently use produce much more neutral ones. Pity about E100gx being discontinued.
