So I shot a roll of this film with my Nikon FA with Nikkor 135 F2.8. The only developer combo I could find was with D-76 at full strength for ten minutes. I was hoping for a little more punch from a 100 speed film. I cant put my finger on it, but the grain structure seems odd to me. Also it feels as though there is a layer over the entire image that dulls it if that makes sense. I'd like to try it in Rodinal, but don't know about times. The negatives were really flat, not a ton of contrast, but made them scan really easily.

I would give Rodinal a try with this film.
1+50 for 10 minutes. Gentle inversion 2-3 times every 2 minutes.
It should take some of the "grey-ness" off.

Please post pictures if you decide to do this.
