    I picked up two rolls this morning to try out in the near future, I would like to know what I should rate this film EI wise to get the best out of it. Should I aim down towards 80 or 64 ISO?

    I used it at 80 iso, and it was ok.

    I'd rate it and all other c41 films at half box speed until proven different by the results (I've only shot one film that was best at box Ultra 50)

    It worked at ASA 100 when I printed it in my darkroom.

    Shooting it at EI 64 gave me good results.

    It sounds like you should shoot it anywhere from 50-100 :D

    So it's settled when I try out the first roll at 64 ISO and I pretend I am shooting Kodachrome.
