    It's a very easy thing you can do yourself and tell us your results.

    Well, I've recently made the same picture on Oriental and Ilford MG IV, both fiber based.
    I can tell there is quite a big difference in price (Oriental being 40% more expensive, because I have no supplier of it in Poland);

    First thought was: no reason to pay so much.
    But after several days I compared that two prints once again - and I have to admit Oriental has something in shadows, that I like so much I cannot give up and I plan to buy that paper again. :wink:

    But I think you have to see it yourself.
