Finest grained B&W ASA 100 Films? : LUSENET : Photographers Communicating : One Thread

I am developing and printing my own B&W photos. I am used to Ilford FP4 and HP5. I am looking for the ASA 100 film with the finest grain and best sharpness for maximum enlargement. I am looking for 35mm as well as 120. Also advise the best suited developer for these films.

Is Kodak Technical Pan still the best in the slower speeds?

Thank you Chris Hattingh

try using,agfa apx 100 and develop in agfa rodinal 1:25 for 8 minutes but most importantly make sure you use a decent enlarging lens!! try rodenstock rodagon 50mm(for 35mm)and 80mm(for 645,66,67) WWW.FOTOARTE.NET

Supposedly fuji is coming out with a very fine grain 100 asa b/w film or has come out with it already. Check local camera shops.
