Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

Absolutely; I used to love printing on Agfa Portriga Rapid because it gave a detectably warmer tone than Brovira or or the more common Kodak and Ilford papers. I also felt Tri-X was more contrasty than HP 4 or HP5. But that could also be a function of the combination of film and one's choice of developer of course.

When I was at Art School and shot and processed in Black and White you could see the subtle differences in film, paper and skill and expertise (especially the lack of these in my work but there were some great photographers there). But if that were scanned and output on a colour device then those subtleties would have gone.
