Am running down on the Ultrafine 125 (Ilford FP4+ cut by photowarehouse) and am looking to order film once again in 5x7, 4x10 and 8x10. I like FP4+ and have used it for some time. Price now is way higher than before and in looking I see FOMA and EFKE both have a 100 speed film in sheet sizes. Any comparisons of these with FP4+ as far as tonal distribution? Any problems with them in coating and defects? Somewhat soft emulsion isn't too much of a problem as I brush develop a sheet at a time but don't want to lose images due to coating defects. Is the emulsion about as tough as the others once dry? Do they work well with Sandy Kings Pyrocat HD developer? Are they any slower with longer exposures... have to add more time for reciprocity failure? I will stay with Ilford if the alternatives definately aren't up to snuff but a lower cost alternative would get me to try it if some who have used both have good results.
